Netflix Down |

February 20, 2010 by Post Team 

netflixNetflix Down | online movie rental service Netflix (NFLX) is down. The Netflix website is also used for watching movies and television shows online. Twitter search is jumping bigtime on the outage which occurs when many people typically watch movies and have date nights.

I’ve seen a variety of messages when accessing including:

“Http/1.1 Service Unavailable”
“We’re sorry, the Netflix website is temporarily unavailable. Our shipping centers are continuing to send and receive DVDs , so your movies will be processed as usual. And you can still instantly watch movies via your Netflix ready device. Our engineers are working hard to bring the site back up as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience and, again, we apologize for the inconvenience. If you need further assistance, please call us at 1-866-636-3079.”

Update 9:05pm Eastern: Another message is randomly visible noting that Netflix is in a maintenance period, “The Netflix website is temporarily unavailable due to scheduled maintenance. During the maintenance period, you may be able to instantly watch movies on an intermittent basis. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. If you need further assistance, please call us at 866-579-7120.”

Update 10:30pm Eastern: Netflix is back – watch your movies!

I’ve been using the Blockbuster Express machines around NYC for my video rentals. With all of the discount codes Blockbuster sends out, the rentals wind up averaging about 25 cents per DVD. Today I noticed that the machine in Times Square had about 30 newly added popular movies.
