The most popular premium video streaming service in the US is Netflix, with more than 70 million paid subscribers. Of course, with new options like Disney Plus, you’d find yourself using it less and less. Netflix is also a lot more expensive than it ever was. Indeed, the service has recently increased prices for two of its three streaming plans.

The Basic plan, with one simultaneous stream and video set at 480p resolution, costs $ 8.99 per month. The Standard plan, with two simultaneous streams and 1080p video resolution settings, is now $ 13.99 per month. If you get the premium plan, which offers four simultaneous streams and support for 4K resolution, the price is $ 17.99 per month.
You may decide that Netflix’s price is just too high. You may also decide that you just aren’t using it enough. If so, here’s how to cancel Netflix from your smartphone or PC via a web browser.
The procedure is much the same if you cancel Netflix through your Android or iOS smartphone app or on your PC web browser.
- Open the Netflix app on your smartphone, tap the “More” menu at the bottom right of the screen. Hover the cursor on your PC web browser on your account profile.
- In either case, tap or click 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 that box.
- You will have one last chance to change your mind, or maybe switch to a cheaper Netflix plan. If you do want to continue dumping Netflix, click or tap the blue “Complete cancellation” box and your account should be canceled.
Note that if you cancel Netflix, you will still be able to watch under your current account until your billing period ends. In the near future, you may decide to return to Netflix. If you return within 10 months of cancellation, you will still be able to access your profiles, favorites and viewing preferences from your previous account.
