Netflix's Cinematch crashed

"Recommendations Unavailable" and "Friends Unavailable"

It looks like Cinematch, the proprietary recommendations software that Netflix uses, is broken again.


  1. That wasn't all. Looks like some routine maintenance after midnight 1/20/05 turned into a web site glitch that lasted all morning. I was attempting to add Gungrave vol. 4 to my queue all that time and got "error" messages up to 9:30am when I went to bed. That's when I noticed other features on Netflix were also down. However, I was able to add that anime to my queue in the afternoon.

  2. It's been on and off several times over the past few days.

  3. I know it is down and its been driving me nuts. I've had to make mental notes of movies I have to go back and rate.
