We got bitten by this. The kids were watching a X-mas movie when it went down.

But... It's not Amazon's business to provide CDN. It's Netflix's business to front their streaming service hosted at AWS with a CDN of their choice. Some of the data required is dynamic though, like subscription data, playlists and position within a movie. A CDN would have been no help with that.

My kids got a Wii U. To set it up it wanted to update. It took for e-e-ever. I think Nintendo needs a (new) CDN...
