It’s been revealed that streaming giants Netflix has been experiencing major outages worldwide and users are not happy at all.
With many of us still being told to stay indoors, we’ve all been turning to Netflix for our entertainment.
It’s not really surprising. We can’t watch anything at the cinemas because they’re closed.
Netflix is, therefore, the next best thing, and there’s been a lot of good new stuff on the streaming platform.
We’ve seen the likes of Extraction, Tiger King and Money Heist Season 4 all come to Netflix during lockdown.
They’ve really helped the streaming platform due well during this COVID-19 pandemic.
However, it seems as though the number of people on the platform has caused outages.
Many people around the world took to Twitter to complain about these major outages on the streaming platform.

So, yes. It looks like Netflix’s success might have come too fast too soon.
As more people are logging in online to watch their favourite shows, it means there is less bandwidth.
This is a worldwide issue and is something the European Union did foresee happening.
They asked Netflix and other online streaming platforms to lower the quality of their streaming.
This has helped in certain areas, but there are still issues with streaming Netflix.
Hopefully, they’ll be able to rectify these issues moving forward so that people can watch as much as they like on the streaming platform.
