Binge-watchers were left in a state of disarray in the early hours of this morning following the outage of streaming service Netflix.

Viewers were greeted with the warning "Sorry, something went wrong. Please try again later', during the brief breakdown. According to Outage.Report 4,112 reported the encountered problem.

The problem was, however resolved in under one hour - but not before Netflix users suffered a collective meltdown, venting their fury on Twitter.
