Netflix is incorporating user alerts and messaging that will “keep members informed,” according to Netflix spokesman Jonathan Friedland. As reported in cnet.com:
“Netflix is alerting its viewers whenever its picture quality slows down through no fault of its own.
Late on Tuesday, Vox Media designer Yuri Victor posted to Twitter a photo of a Netflix screen with a message about a buffering interruption to a video stream. The message wasted no words about where the blame lay: “The Verizon network is crowded right now.” Netflix went on to say that it was “adjusting video for smoother playback.”
