The most popular premium video streaming service in the U.S. is Netflix, with over 58 million paid subscribers. Of course with new options like Disney Plus, you might find yourself using it less and less. Netflix is also a lot more expensive than it once was.
In January 2019, Netflix announced a price increase on all of its plans. The basic plan, with one concurrent stream and video set to 480p resolution, is now $8.99 a month. The standard plan, with two concurrent streams and 1080p video resolution settings, is now $12.99 a month. If you splurge on the premium plan, which offers four concurrent streams and support for 4K resolution, the price now $13.99 a month to $15.99 a month.
If you feel that Netflix’s latest current price is just too much or you just don’t use it enough, here’s how to cancel Netflix from your smartphone or your PC via a web browser.
How to cancel Netflix
The procedure is almost exactly the same if you cancel Netflix via your Android or iOS smartphone app or on your PC web browser.
- On your smartphone Netflix app, tap on the “More” menu on the bottom right side of the screen. On your PC web browser, just have the cursor hover on your account profile.
- In both cases, tap or click on on the “Account” section.
- You will be taken to a web page where you will see a slightly gray box called “Cancel Membership.” Tap or click onto that box.
- You will be given one final chance to change your mind, or perhaps switch to a cheaper Netflix plan. If you still want to go ahead with ditching Netflix, click or tap on the blue “Finish Cancellation” box and your account should be canceled.
Keep in mind that if do cancel Netflix, you can still stream and watch under your current account until your billing period ends. If you decide to return to Netflix within 10 months of canceling, you can still access your profiles, favorites and viewing preferences from your previous account.
That’s how to cancel Netflix, and as you can see, it’s a pretty simple operation with not a lot of hoops to go through.
