Americans hoping to catch a sappy Christmas drama before work and thousands of other people across the globe were met with an error message from Netflix this morning — according to Business Insider.

While everything is back to working now, the streaming service was down for hours all over the world. The bulk of outages were reported in western Europe, but even Costa Rica was impacted. In a tweet, Netflix announced everything should be back to normal and apologized for any inconvenience caused. It’s safe to say all after-work bingeing plans can go on as planned.
