Netflix Outage: Company Says Video Streaming Service Went Down On Christmas Eve

Posted: Updated:

Those hoping to spend the holiday watching streaming video from Netflix can now get back in front of their TVs, tablets and PCs after a Christmas Eve outage.

A Netflix Inc. spokesman said by email Tuesday morning that the service has been fully restored.

The outage affected customers in the Americas starting around 12:30 p.m. PST on Monday. The company, which is based in Los Gatos, Calif., blames problems with Amazon Web Services, and says it is investigating further.

Amazon Web Services provides companies with online storage and computing. It is separate from Seattle-based Inc.'s better-known shopping website.

Amazon says that problems with its service have also now been fixed.
