New York/New Delhi: After an outage on Christmas eve, Netflix has fully restored its streaming service on Wednesday.

The outage affected customers in the Americas starting around 12:30 p.m. PST on Monday. The company, which is based in Los Gatos, California, blames problems with Amazon Web Services, and says it is investigating further.

According to reports, the blackout impacted subscribers across Canada, Latin America and the United States, and affected various devices that enable users to stream movies and television shows from home, Netflix spokesman Joris Evers said.

Evers said the issue was the result of an outage at an Amazon Web Services' cloud computing center in Virginia and started at about 12:30 p.m. PST (2030 GMT) on Monday and was fully restored before 8:00 a.m.

Netflix which provides streaming videos, movies and TV shows has 30 million subscribers worldwide.
