What brought the Netflix site down tonight?
Not that I was able to watch the Oscars myself — I’m an unlucky CableVision subscriber whose ABC channel was pulled due to a spat between the cable company and the broadcast network. It just seemed a bit early in the evening to blame Oscar generated traffic for bringing down the Netflix site. I’m inclined to think that many of CableVision 3,000,000 subscribers went looking for Netflix movies to stream in lieu of watching the Oscars.
Does anybody know what the real cause of the outage was?
P.S. I’m impressed by neither CableVision nor ABC’s blame game. Time to drop cable TV and get the broadcast channels free over the air — the old fashioned way?
