Netflix users have complained they were unable to access the popular video streaming site.
When some users visited Netflix, they were greeted with the message: "We were unable to process your request. Please go to the Netflix home page by clicking the button below" instead of the usual list of recommended videos.
Underneath that message was a button directing users to the homepage.
Netflix users, likely worried they will no longer be able to binge-watch their favourite TV programmes, have taken to Twitter to complain.
