    It is not yet known whether the issue is worldwide or just UK-based.

    A Netflix spokesman said: "We are currently experiencing issues streaming on all devices.

    "We are working to resolve the problem.

    "We apologize for any inconvenience."

    Fans of the service have been left fuming.

    One wrote: "Netflix Down – let's go on Amazon Prime."

    And a second raged: "Oh for Christ sake, Netflix down again."

    A third posted: "Netflix is down and I can't sleep."

    It comes on the same day that Netflix shed more light on its punishment for password sharing.

    The new rules aim to force those who share passwords to pay for more users, or for those not paying to sign up for the service.

    Netflix states: "When a device outside of your household signs in to an account or is used persistently, we may ask you to verify that device before it can be used to watch Netflix or switch your Netflix household.

    "We do this to confirm that the device using the account is authorized to do so.

    "If you are away from the Netflix household for an extended period of time, you may be occasionally asked to verify your device.

    "We ask you to verify to make sure that the device using the account is authorized to do so. Verifying a device is quick and easy.

    "We use information such as IP addresses, device IDs, and account activity from devices signed into the Netflix account."

    Netflix will not automatically charge you if you share your account with someone who doesn’t live with you, they claimed.
