  2. Enter your email address or phone number in the top box, and your password in the lower box then click "Sign In."

  3. When the page loads, click on your main account. It will open up to the Netflix streaming page.

  4. Hover over your profile image in the top right-hand corner of the screen. A drop-down menu appears. Click on "Account."

  5. Your account information will now be displayed. Click the button on the left that says, "Cancel Membership."

  6. When the next page loads, click "Finish Cancellation."

  7. A new screen pops up letting you know that your membership has been canceled and gives you a final date for when you'll no longer be able to stream shows and movies.

While being able to watch plenty of shows and movies is a major plus, you might not use the service enough to warrant having it. Big hits have left Netflix or are leaving soon, including The Office, Friends, and several Disney shows and movies. It's possible that one of the many other streaming services out there might offer more of the media you want. Fortunately, canceling or even re-opening your membership with Netflix isn't tricky.

Reasons to consider keeping your membership

This streaming service might be losing classic hits that it's showcased for a while, but there are still plenty of other movies and programs to keep you entertained for hours. One of the biggest reasons to stay is because Netflix has some excellent originals that you won't find anywhere else - the most notable one being the Duffer Brothers' Stranger Things.
