Adding another name to the list of web services having trouble today, Netflix is partially down for some users. While it's possible to get to the home page and play selected videos, but features like search, suggestions, and recently viewed titles aren't showing up. The problem doesn't appear to be as widespread as recent Twitter and Google Talk outages, and site functionality isn't quite as compromised for those who are having the problems. We also haven't had any reports of problems through the service's apps. Netflix, for its part, has acknowledged the problem and is working on a fix.

Update: Netflix says it has resolved the issue, and we're not having any more trouble when testing it.
The issues reported earlier have been fixed. Our apologies - and thank you for your patience.— Netflix (@Netflixhelps) July 26, 2012
