Update: NetflixHelps announced around 2am EST that the streaming issues have been fixed. Netflix streaming was unavailable for about 8 hours for some customers.
For those of you having difficulty streaming tonight, our apologies - we're aware of the issue and working to fix it as quickly as possible.
Update (11:50pm EST): Some people are reporting that streaming is working, but others are still reporting issues on a wide range of devices. Reader Darren reported an interesting problem with his queue:
Looks like Netflix is having more problems than just streaming tonight. My account (3 DVDs + Blu-Ray + Streaming) now looks like a streaming only account when I go to the site. Clicking on my account still says the correct information, but the site just doesn't show it or show a DVD queue or allow me to add DVDs
If you're having problems with your queue after this outage, try visiting netflix.com/clearcookies. Thanks to Jessica for the tip!
Thanks to Jeff, Aaron, Mr. Michaud, and everyone else for sending this in.
