Netflix is a beautiful service, but at £15 per month for their top offering in the UK, it can be seen as an expensive lifestyle choice. With energy prices rising and the general cost of living going up monthly, more and more users are looking to cancel their subscriptions.
Cancelling your Netflix streaming membership is simple because it is a month-to-month agreement rather than a permanent term.
Netflix is a subscription-based online video streaming service that allows customers to view Netflix TV episodes and movies on any device with an internet connection. Cancellation is simplified.
You may also download TV series and movies to your iOS, Android, or Windows 10 device and view them without an online connection, depending on your membership level.
To terminate your Netflix subscription, go to https://www.netflix.com/cancelplan and choose to cancel or downgrade to the Standard Plan.
If you return within ten months, your profiles, favourites, viewing choices, and account information will remain.
If you select immediate cancellation, you will not be charged again until you reactivate your account. If you cancel with time remaining in your payment term, you can continue to use Netflix until the account is automatically cancelled after the subscription period.

FAQs about Cancelling a Netflix Subscription
My subscription was cancelled, but I was still charged. What is the situation?
Netflix cancellations take effect in the next payment cycle. If you are paid on the first of the month but cancel on the 15th, you will still have access to Netflix content until the first.
Unfortunately, cancellations can be delayed, which means you may be charged again if you cancel your subscription within one or two days before the renewal date.
Check your email once you've cancelled your membership to ensure you did it correctly. You should get a confirmation email. Whether you did not get one, go to Netflix and check to see if your membership has an expiration date (there will be a notice listed).
Finally, contact Netflix Support for assistance if you are satisfied that you terminated your account correctly and on time (you may have many). Netflix's stated refund policy is that they do not issue them, but if you were incorrectly billed, it's worth contacting them to see if you can get your money back.
I don't see a way to cancel my Netflix membership under my profile. So what's the deal?
Another supplier charges you if you've followed the steps above and still don't see a cancellation option. If you're still confused, log in to your Netflix account and click on the link next to your billing information. This section will walk you through the cancellation of your account setup.
Is it possible to have my account reactivated?
Yes. Your Netflix account can be reactivated for up to 10 months. Your viewing history and everything else will be saved if you do so within this time limit.
You must establish a new account if you wish to cancel after this period.
Can I suspend my account?
Customers can halt their membership payments and service for a specific time. However, this option is not available to everyone. Netflix acknowledges that it is investigating the possibility in July 2021. As of May 22, 2022, many customers still have no access to the function. Those who intend to cancel their Netflix subscription should do so before the 10th payment cycle to maintain their service.
