An outage to Netflix happened 24 hours ago, but the company have confirmed that they've restored their video streaming services a day after the outage happened, which was because of technical issues with their Web service provider, Amazon.
Amazon engineers worked the entire night to get the services up and running again for Netflix, with Netflix saying that the outage began at around 3:30pm Eastern Time on Monday. This outage stopped all video streaming on a bunch of devices with a Netflix spokesman saying "we are investigating the cause and will do what we can to prevent reoccurrence".
Amazon's outages to certain services caused other companies like Heroku Inc. and social media app Score to experience problems, too. Everything appears to be back to normal now, thankfully as Netflix is the host to over 25.1 million streaming Americans.
