For those looking to spend some money on Amazon Friday night, they were in for quite a shock.
Amazon’s Prime Video went down on Friday night, and the world exploded.
All over Twitter, people could not contain their anger at Amazon, who’s Instant Prime Video service went down around 9:00pm ET.
Until Amazon’s service can come back up, people will just need to find something different to do on Friday night. Perhaps go outside and enjoy the company of other people. For those looking to stay in, hopefully they still have a cable service they can rely on.
Some people were more upset with Amazon’s lack of an apology.
Perhaps the technicians like having their Friday night off.
Amazon has not had this kind of issue practically ever, so it will likely be back up and running very soon. The outage appears to be all over the country, as people from all over the United States took to Twitter to express their frustration with the streaming service.
The company’s streaming service is looking to battle other companies like Netflix for a share of the market, and they have been putting big effort into making sure they are players in the industry. They have doubled down on getting the exclusive rights to certain movies, and some believe they are the better streaming service.
Friday night was an obvious aberration, but boy were the people annoyed. At least some people got to save some money for once on a Friday night.
Amazon was founded in 1994 as Cadabra in Seattle, Washington by Jeff Bezous. In 2015, the company brought in $107 billion dollars in revenue.
