Netflix Back After Christmas Eve Outage

Streaming video is back online

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, which offers its own streaming-video competitor.
