Nowadays, more and more people are becoming Netflix users. The streaming platform has many free time possibilities suitable for people of all ages (cartoons, comedies, drama, romance and more). This variety makes it very popular all over the world and a significant number of children and adults use it every day.
Recently, Netflix users experienced an unpleasant situation. They collectively freaked out after not being able to use the platform because of a major outage. The streaming giant’s issue affected about 125 million users from all over the world.
What caused this unusual situation?
So far, specialists don’t know what could have caused the outage, but Netflix engineers are trying their best to figure that out. While the platform showed an error message, people who were used to watch movies and TV shows here started to share their thoughts on social networks. Some of them made jokes and said that now when the platform is down, they don’t have anything else to do.
Most of the users were worried and wondered how long would the situation last. They were even more surprised to see that the situation is the same for both the website and the Netflix app and said that this shouldn’t happen when a huge competitor like the one we are talking about is involved.
Experts in the field declared that the issue could have been caused by a technical error since even the Netflix status page wasn’t working and couldn’t load. Whatever might have caused it, Rob Toledo, editor-in-chief at the Exstreamist news site said that this was the biggest outage he has ever seen.
Now that Netflix is back on track, users are happy to be able to watch their favorite TV shows and films online again. If you still haven’t seen any programme on it, you really should give it a chance.
