Netflix is down for a lot of users in the United States
The recent coronavirus epidemic has promoted a lot of users to stay home. Now that social distancing is the norm; there isn't much to do outside. As a result, a lot of people spend their free time browsing video streaming services like Netflix. Several websites have even lowered the quality of content served on their platforms in a bid to reduce the load on internet infrastructure.
It is only a matter of time before they feel the burden, and Netflix may finally have capitulated to all the stress. Reports coming in from several news sources indicate that Netflix is experiencing an outage right now in the United States. Both the desktop and mobile versions of the streaming service appear to be affected.
A Netflix spokesperson has acknowledged the issue on Twitter and has said that the company is looking into it. Perhaps this is little more than a little hiccup, which will sort itself out in the next few hours. We'll be sure to update this post with more information in the next few hours.
Thank you for letting us know. We are currently looking into this situation and working towards a fix. *KW— Netflix CS (@Netflixhelps) March 25, 2020
