Netflix apologizes for downtime

A few days ago, Netflix’s video streaming went down for a few hours, and while it wasn’t explained what caused the problem (technical issues was the vague response), the service was up and running again at night. However it seems that Netflix feels bad about the issue and sent out email apologies as well as a 3% credit towards users’ next billing statement for the Watch Instantly Unlimited plan. We’re not sure if everybody received the letter of apology, but you can always call up Netflix (1-866-923-0898) to complain if the service interruption affected you. Hit the break to read the full email they’ve been sending out:
