“We are aware that some customers are seeing errors when visiting Netflix’s website and we are working to solve this as quickly as possible.”

According to, the problem has been ongoing over the past few hours.

Around 10:30 p.m. ET, many users reported the service was coming back online. However, some are still reporting problems.

Many web users were greeted with a “technical difficulties” message while Apple TV and Chromecast users have reported the streaming service is working for them.

Outages have been reported in other countries including Switzerland, Argentina, and several others.

Netflix has not given the “all clear” yet.
