Netflix US service hit by outage
Families across the United States had to rely on other sources of entertainment after Netflix's video streaming service was hit by a Christmas Eve outage.
The company based in Los Gatos, California, apologised in a company tweet for the outage on Monday night.
The company says on its Twitter page that 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."
