Updated. Netflix, the popular online video service seems to be having an outage of some sorts. For past hour or so, I have been trying to access the service but I have been unable to watch it on my iPad or on my Apple TV. It is about 8:40 PT.  Does anyone know what is going on? (We have reached out to Netflix and will update the post accordingly.)

Their website has the following message:

Update 8:55 PT A reader points out that movies.netflix.com is working and I am testing it out — it seems to be working but the iPad app and Apple TV are not working. It is working on the iPhone.

Update 9:30 PT http://www.netflix.com is redirecting to movies.netflix.com, and viewers are able to log in. Also, the iPad app appears to be working and readers report that Roku is now working as well.

    I’ve been wounding the same. Doing a search on the iPhone app actually brings back results and you can stream that way.

  2. Try movies.netflix.com, it just worked for me! I’m not sure why the main site is down though…

  3. They are probably scrambling to close-caption ALL of their watch-instantly movies so the following law-suit doesn’t go through:

    3. There’s a reason (several, actually) why I have no desire to hop on the streaming video band wagon.

    I had a Uverse outage last night. Everything uverse related worked. But everything else like google.com as well as netflix was down. I wonder if it is related.
