It's too late to queue up that favorite holiday classic, but Netflix's streaming video service is now back.

The Web-based film and television show provider went dark briefly on Christmas Eve, according to reports (and many irked movie-watchers on social media).

The service cut out beginning around 12:30 p.m. Pacific time on Monday, according to the Associated Press. Los Gatos-based Netflix said problems with Amazon Web services were to blame.

Amazon Web Services is separate from Amazon.com, which offers its own streaming-video competitor.
