    Well, this can't be good. Netflix has been offline all evening. If you have a Apple TV, don't try to use it. It locks up the device for several seconds.

    A quick Google search shows many reports of Neflix being down last night - you were not alone.

    Here's their Twitter link:

    As of this AM (March 23) the page has messages about the outage and their progress while fixing the issue.

    Last Friday night I was doing a NetFlix Parks and Recreation season 2 marathon for my self when at about 9:38PM it kept stopping and loading and then nothing. I gave up after 15 minutes of trying to get it to stream again, my thought was too many users were on at that time and it overloaded the system.

    I think it's great they did that. Netflix has a long standing reputation for satisfying their customers. Just wish the power and water companies would do the same. :)
