Netflix had an outage yesterday leaving people unable to stream content for around two hours.
The error occurred on Sunday evening and seemed only to affect the UK and Ireland.
Netflix, which migrated its IT infrastructure to Amazon Web Services in 2010, provides content-streaming services to more than 50 million customers worldwide. The outage did not seem to affect Amazon Web services.

The content streaming giant issued an apology from its UK Twitter account during the outage, but gave no explanation of what caused the issue.
Last month the BBC’s catch-up service BBC iPlayer also suffered an outage, leaving the public unable to watch on-demand TV shows.

Netflix also tweeted from its helpdesk Twitter account, which is not usually manned at the weekend, to inform customers that it was aware of the European streaming outages. Normal service has now resumed.
