Major Netflix Outage Stops Shipment of DVDs

If you've been counting on Netflix to fill a TV void during the Olympics or just pick up this week's new releases, there may be some bad news for you: Netflix is in the middle of its biggest outage ever.

About a third of Netflix's 8.4 million customers are being affected by the outage, according to Reuters. Netflix didn't ship any DVDs on Tuesday, got a few out the door on Wednesday, and hasn't shipped any so far today.

Netflix had a brief outage in March, but this one is being seen as much worse — partly because the company hasn't figured out yet what made the shipping system go down. Officials said they're working "feverishly" to fix it, will offer credits to affected customers, and have e-mailed those who won't be getting their DVDs as scheduled.

Have any of you been caught in this Netflix mess? Or are you receiving and returning your DVDs just fine?
