Netflix Streaming Disrupted by Christmas Eve Outage


Netflix's video streaming service was hit by a Christmas Eve outage.

The Los Gatos-based company  apologized in a company tweet for the outage Monday night.

On its Twitter page, the company said the outage was caused by "some of Amazon's cloud infrastructure." Netflix says it was working with Amazon engineers to restore the outage, which a company spokesman told the Wall Street Journal stretched "across the Americas."

Attempts to reach Netflix by The Associated Press were unsuccessful. However, C-Net reports a statement from the company that streaming had been restored to customers by late Christmas Eve.
