Netflix has apologized on social media for unexplained technical issues on Nov. 21 that caused outage issues for several hours to select subscribers around the world.
“We’re sorry some of our members were unable to use Netflix for a couple of hours today. The issue is now fixed. Apologies for the inconvenience,” Netflix tweeted.
The glitches reportedly involved streaming on portable devices, a distribution channel Netflix is targeting, notably in emerging markets in India and Asia. The website DownDetector.com reported the outages were affecting subs around the world.
Netflix responded to individual users complaining on the social media platform.
“At the moment we are experiencing technical problems, we are busy rectifying this as quickly as possible,” Netflix tweeted to a Dutch sub. “[We] recommend trying Netflix again at a later date. Sorry for the inconvenience.”
