How to cancel Netflix
Ready to cancel your Netflix account? You're not alone!
There are many reasons to cancel your Netflix account nowadays, even if it's still considered to be the largest and most popular streaming service around. Maybe you're sick of the price increases or new device restrictions, or maybe they simply keep cancelling your favorite shows. No matter the reason, if you're looking to ditch your Netflix subscription, we can tell you how to do it in minutes.
If you're just trying to save a little money, it's worth noting that Netflix recently added a "Basic with Ads" plan for just $6.99 per month. This new pricing tier gives you instant access to most TV shows and films in the Netflix library in HD (not all titles are included, unfortunately) with an average of about four minutes of ads per hour of content streamed. If that doesn't work for you, the ad-free "Basic" plan costs $9.99 per month, and the "Standard" and "Premium" plans now cost $15.49/month and $19.99/month, respectively.

What if I have Netflix through T-Mobile?
If you've signed up through T-Mobile's Netflix on Us promotion, things are a little different. This is a perk for T-Mobile subscribers that sees the company covering the cost of your subscription, up to a certain amount.
Because you're being billed through T-Mobile and not directly through Netflix, you'll have to visit T-Mobile support (opens in new tab) and follow the steps in your account to remove Netflix on Us.
Reasons to consider keeping your membership
While Netflix may lose some content it's showcased for years, there are still plenty of movies and series to keep you entertained for hours. One of the biggest reasons to stay is Netflix's catalog of originals that you won't find anywhere else — such as Stranger Things, Bridgerton, Squid Game, and The Witcher.
This streaming service gives you access to thousands of shows and movies. In addition to offering hits from other networks and companies, Netflix also makes its own productions like the highly acclaimed Stranger Things series.
Starting at $6.99/month (opens in new tab)
