Just how popular is Netflix's streaming video service?

Well, a new study shows that Netflix accounts for 20 percent of peak internet bandwidth in the country. That is a lot of bandwidth!

The news comes a day after Netflix's streaming capabilities went down for several hour.

Apparently, Netflix streaming is highest between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m., which makes sense. People like watching stuff at night! So if your Internet gets slow around then, you know who to blame.
