Netflix working?
 
Hey all;
I was wondering if anyone with Netflix has had issues this evening.

I started up the PS3, and got a "device not activated" message in Netflix. It asked me to log in to activate, which seemed to go fine.

Now whenever I try to watch a movie, its unavailable. Netflix will allow me to search titles, scan the titles offered, but just not watch anything. I have tried several titles, both HD and otherwise.

I tried rebooting my modem, router, PS3 (after rebooting the modem and router), and I also was able to use the PS3 to surf the web (so the PS3 is accessing the net no problems).

Any ideas? Can anyone confirm that they can watch videos?

I feel bad for your bandwidth caps. That's some heavy downloading.

Your wife is not nearly as demanding. I find I can get what I need with a few bytes. :ph34r:

From what i was reading there was some kind of outage last night. If you had your device logged in it still worked last night. The problem seemed to mostly affect people who had the device off/logged off, and logged in last night. The login would work but no streaming afterwards.

works fine this morning. Kinda annoyed that Netflix Canada was not answering the phone on the 24 hour hotline.
