Netflix online for PC is also down in NYC. I haven't checked Amazon for PC.

I'm in North Carolina and have had Pandora up for the last 2 hours (trying to drown out my snoring hubby while I play pogo.com LOL). I just tried Neflix after reading your post. It took about 5 seconds, but the site loaded just fine.

Edited: Amazon works also. FYI - all on my PC/laptop. AT&T DSL.

Perhaps there is just a node or two down in the NYC area. *shrugs*

The Netflix site will load and the catalog cover art is displayed, but you can;t stream any movies here in NYC and I presume elsewhere still.

Check the link in the original post - There's been a problem since early yesterday afternoon when it started affecting the west coast - it affected NYC sometime after 7pm.

Ah, I don't have streaming at Netflix, so I couldn't check that.

Hmmmmm. Other than the other day when most experienced a problem with Craigslist for a short time, we haven't experienced any internet problems: Netflix, Amazon, Pandora, Twitter, Facebook, etc etc.

Weird.

Hope it is nothing too serious.

1st world problem.
Although it is not true that all conservatives are stupid,
it is true that most stupid people are conservative.

Because it is easier to give someone the finger than a helping hand.

No Netflix here either. It was working late afternoon.

Was just on amazon reading the forums and some of the posts.
Seems to be widespread....

Some of the posts......

Scrooge! I gave a years subscription to Netfix for a gift and it's not working. I hope this isn't intentional on Amazon's part. Is anyone else having a problem?


I cannot connect either. I bet they are having a problem.


this is weird--because also, no itune gift cards can be activated in Austin, TX tonight--and the stores are unable to sell them........a very strange thing indeed....


Netflix is having problems unrelated to Amazon. I've been watching on-and-off all day and have had to deal with slow loading or getting kicked off of my show. So they are not out to Scrooge anybody. I suspect they have a higher volume of viewers today.

They are down here in Calif too


I just finished the final season of The IT Crowd and had to do plenty of F5s to get each episode to load. I imagine they're having lots more traffic than usual, but think of all the holiday domestic violence they're helping avert.
