A Netflix crash sparked worldwide panic as the international streaming giant temporarily went offline – and the internet was thrown into chaos.


Affected Netflix subscribers were suddenly left with nothing to do and a great big void in their evening plans as they stared blankly at the screens. The website Down Detector reported a spike in Netflix problems, while users flocked to Twitter to complain.

What was happening?? They wondered. What now? How could Netflix have forsaken its biggest fans?

It was a lot to deal with.

Some felt personally attacked…


But Netflix seems to be back up and running – so it’s time to chill.
