Netflix, the popular streaming platform, faced a widespread outage on Monday, leaving users across the globe unable to access the service for several hours.

Starting at 5:00 p.m. ET and continuing until approximately 8:00 p.m. ET, subscribers experienced connectivity issues and received an unusual "tvq-pb-101" error message. The outage affected users in various countries, and was reported on platforms such as X, Threads, Reddit and others.

While Netflix's global availability often results in small glitches, Monday's incident stands out for its duration and wide reach. The Verge reported a variety of instances among its writers and editors: some were able to stream content without issue, while others experienced the unfortunate "tvq-pb-101" error. The Downdetector platform recorded a spike in reports of outages starting at 5 p.m. ET.

The streaming giant did not provide specific details about the cause of the outage, but as subscription prices for streaming services rise, such outages are adding to user dissatisfaction.
