A bug that plagued Netflix streaming video delivery for several weeks was finally fixed late last week.

According to a post at the official Netflix blog this past Friday, “Recently some Netflix members using Roku or Xbox movie players noticed lower quality streaming than they had experienced earlier. This was a temporary issue that we believe we have resolved. Working with our content distribution partners and key carriers, we made some specific changes that should restore everyone’s experience to where it was before – high quality streaming.”

Netflix streaming customers using the Roku Player or the Microsoft’s (MS) Xbox, started reporting severe streaming performance hits in mid-November, rendering the movies they had rented unviewable.

There was no word from Netflix regarding the cause of the problem, just the notification to users that it had been fixed.
