Netflix fans panic as site is hit by global streaming issues

Netflix is back up and running after going dark for a few hours Monday afternoon.

"We are aware of members having trouble streaming on all devices", it posted. "If we are experiencing an interruption to our streaming service, we'll keep this page up to date with a description of the problem".

Netflix users were left panicking last night after the streaming site was hit by unexpected issues across the globe.

"The streaming issues we reported earlier have now been resolved".

Thousands of Netflix customers around the world have been unable to watch any video or TV on the site.

Netflix fans flocked to Twitter to express their concerns about the outage, with some questioning the coincidence that the temporary shut down occurred on the same day that Net Neutrality died.

And as Netflix went off to investigate, the memes began to flood in.

California-based Netflix has over 100 million subscribers around the world and has grown in popularity with its original content.

It is unusual for the entertainment monolith to go down, much like other tech giants Twitter and Facebook, and people vented on social media.
