Netflix Down?

So, I was just trying to manage my Netflix account, at 10:30pm EST on August 8th 2011, and went to check on my DVD queue when I received this strange error. I tried going back to the previous page and selecting another link, but it still didn’t work. So I thought maybe there was an issue with Google Chrome, so I tried IE8, still no dice… Maybe tomorrow some other websites will have reported it, but for now The Netflix Members section is down, at least for me.

Possibly they got cut off by Comcast? Who knows, maybe it is just me? I did have a similar experience with Hotmail a while back and never heard anything about it, except for my issues. So, we shall see…

***update now I cannot get to the page either***

Wow, talk about a fast response, by the time I added the update above there were already 25 comments on this post. Making it my post with the most! I should complain about things more often! Links to this post went out via Twitter and Google+ (Public). Sometimes it is nice to know we are not alone.

***Update 11:30pm EST August 8th, 2011 – Was just able to log in, view recommended movies, opened up my queue, all loaded nicely. Then I went back to browse DVD’s and was going to grab a screen capture when I got the “No data received” error again. 4 refreshes and 8 minutes later, I received a page again, as shown below.
