Netflix’s video streaming service went down for many U.S. subscribers on Thursday, causing many to turn to Twitter to complain.

The outage was cause by a web content delivery service known as UltraDNS. A problem with one of UltraDNS' servers on the East Coast took down several websites, a company spokeswoman told the New York Times.

The online streaming service was restored Thursday evening after 90 minutes.
