Netflix is back online after an outage temporarily interrupted service Tuesday night.

The outage, which lasted about four hours, left customers unable to watch movies or TV shows through its online streaming service or through devices such as Roku.

A Netflix spokesperson says the technical issue was rare and unanticipated and staffers worked through the night to solve the problem.

Netflix has 20 million customers throughout the U.S. and Canada.
