Update: Netflix on Facebook reports that Netflix streaming should be online again after a serious outage that lasted more than 12 hours.
NewTeeVee reports that Amazon Prime was still available last night while Netflix Streaming was down, but we're on the East Coast and had trouble accessing Amazon Prime last night to view a movie. I agree with NewTeeVee that there are now alternatives to Amazon Web Services, and after an outage like this Netflix must at least be thinking about service providers that don't compete directly with them.
Netflix Streaming was down most of Christmas Eve for many customers, and the first official acknowledgment came from the NetflixHelps Twitter feed at 1pm PST.
