Amazon Prime Video appears to be suffering from at least a partial outage worldwide, with complaints piling up on Twitter about the lack of service.
The tracking service Down Detector notes that outage reports have suddenly spiked.
Some users report the trouble lines are saturated, and that customer service has said it may be several hours before the issue is fixed. No cause for the outage has been revealed. Amazon has acknowledged the problem on its website, writing “We are currently experiencing technical difficulties. Please return later for more information about Prime.”
Earlier this month, Xbox Live had an outage, locking players out. And in June, Netflix had a brief outage of about an hour, citing unspecified “technical issues” that the company was working to correct.
Amazon Prime Video has had 26,000+ customer reporting an outage. Their chat and phone help lines are saturated. #PrimeVideo

.@PrimeVideo @AmazonHelp Prime Video is down and won’t let me watch anything. Many people are tweeting about a similar outage, but no official amazon accounts seem to have addressed the apparently widespread outage.
