Re:Down Again - Why Does Netflix Always Stop Working

Netflix streaming was down last night too. Went to Amazon Prime to watch online on my TV. Netflix has to get its act together or people will start cancelling their subscriptions.

They are pretty dumb to be using Amazon's servers.

Re:Down Again - Why Does Netflix Always Stop Working

I think the better question is why does amazon cloud itself (the player, amazon video services, etc) never go down when companies using it's servers do?

So let's see Netflix it down and it uses Amazon servers and Amazon's services work and they too use Amazon servers and they compete with each other. And you are seriously asking your question as to WHY Netflix keeps going down?

And show me where I asked WHY Netflix is going down? I don't see it, do you?

"Down Again - Why does netflix always stop working" was the post made by REVCB in his nightly digest. I just replied to it.

B) you said "Netflix has to get its act together or people will start cancelling their subscriptions."

Um AMAZON has to get it's act together it's AMAZON'S servers that keep failing.

Not Amazon's problem as far as Netflix's customers are concerned. Netflix chooses who supplies their streaming infrastructure. Ultimately, it is Netflix's responsibility to pick providers that can meet their uptime goals.

I highly doubt Netflix has a month to month contract with Amazon. In fact I'm pretty sure it's a yearly contract if not mutli year. Therefore it's up to Amazon to live up to its part of the contract.

I keep hearing about these outages but I haven't experienced them--- been watching Netflix streaming every day, I guess however it happened in prime time whereas I tend to watch in the wee hours, usually.

*sigh* Well, it's not like we had privacy to begin with.

Right up until the time you piss someone off who doesn't have to worry about any oversight.
