Is Netflix DOWN – Tvq-st-145 error message greets thousands of subscribers

Netflix servers are currently down, leaving subscribers unable to watch movies and box sets online.

The Netflix server status makes grim reading for users, who are being greeted with error 503 messages when trying to login.

Judging by the reports on social media, it looks like the streaming service went offline after 8pm BST UK time.

Indeed, Independent website Down Detector has received thousands of reports that Netflix isn’t working.

The outage tracker monitors social mentions around certain topics to detect when services go down across the world.

The Down Detector outage map shows that the Netflix issues are affecting users in the UK, Europe and the US.

At the time of writing, Down Detector has peaked with 6,400 reports in the UK alone.

Things aren’t quite so severe in the US, where fewer than 1,000 reports have been picked up by Down Detector.

Needless to say, subscribers are venting their frustrations on Twitter, although some are able to see the funny side.

One fan writes: “The relief when you figure out that your computer and connection are just fine #netflixdown.”

Another posts: “As soon as I sit down for a lunch break Netflix is down.”

“I can handle Facebook or Instagram being down, but not Netflix. I need my daily fix of Steve Carell,” reads a further post.

Interestingly, there’s no mention of the outage on the Netflix service status page.

According to Netflix, everything is up and working as intended: “Netflix is up! We are not currently experiencing an interruption to our streaming service.”

The outage couldn’t have come at a worse time, especially with the popularity of Squid Game.

According to data posted by Bloomberg, over 130 million people have watched at least two minutes of the violent nine-episode show within the first 23 days of airing.

Two-thirds of viewers are said to have completed Squid Game within 23-days and watchers have spent a total of 1.4billion hours watching the series.

The success of the violent Korean series means Netflix is due to make some serious money during the current financial year.
