Netflix DOWN: TV and film streaming service crashes for thousands of frustrated viewers across parts of UK

FLIX FURY

NETFLIX has gone down for thousands of users across the UK leaving cooped-up Brits unable to watch their favourite shows.

Visitors have been unable to connect to the website and streaming services are unavailable. 

Some have been met with an error message when trying to access the app.

Outage tracker site DownDetector has reported more than 1,600 complaints in the UK.

Around half say they have been met with a "no connection" message when they log on.

Others say they are seeing the error code NSES-500 when trying to connect.

One person said: "Error Code NSES-500 cannot connect but internet is working fine and I've cleared internet browsing history and cache.."

Another wrote: "@netflix is down on web for people all over the world but they are being very quiet."

While one wrote: "Anyone else’s @NetflixUK not working?? Getting error NSES-500."

Netflix is yet to officially comment on the problem but have told viewers they are investigating.

It comes after the service hiked prices for users.

The standard package, which allows users to watch on two screens, rose by £1 to £9.99 per month.

While the premium package - providing four-screen access and Ultra HD - is being bumped up from £11.99 to £13.99.
