How to connect to Netflix during an outage (sometimes)

According to IsItDownRightNow, Netflix has been having more problems today after a brief outage yesterday (I guess they haven’t paid the telecoms quite enough protection money yet). Commenters their have come up with a solution that works in some of these smaller outages – just connect to Netflix’ IP address directly:

69.53.236.17

Whenever you enter an address into your browser like “netflix.com”, your browser then checks the “Domain Name Server” (DNS) to see where that domain is located – at what IP address. If the DNS is down, but the server is still up, you can still get there by bypassing the first step.
