Netflix Web site suffers 11-hour service outage

LOS GATOS, Calif. Online DVD rental leader Netflix Inc. suffered a technology breakdown yesterday that knocked out its Web site for about 11 hours.

The outage, from about 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. Eastern time, could mean some customers will have to wait longer than usual for their next rentals. The disruption was the second-longest since Netflix launched its service nine years ago.

The company has about 7.5 million subscribers.
