Monday evening on the west coast Amazon Instant Video seems to be down with no status update on their official twitter account. Samsung TV app reports that subscribers should contact Amazon directly at 1-877-442-1958. When the number is dialed callers are told that they are experiencing an outage and that technicians are working to resolve the issue. Xbox 360 streaming error code IN1001. And it all comes amid the seemingly unrelated news that Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos just bought the Washington Post. Just what is Amazon cooking up tonight, or is this a mere technical glitch?

Searching online we’re unable to find a place that lists the status of Amazon’s video offering.
