Streaming services, for example, are offered based on subscriptions and there is sometimes a need to cancel them. Therefore we take that you would need to cancel Netflix subscription at one point or the other, so we brought you this
Services that require subscription always have a timeframe given to each of the subscriptions. Meanwhile, users are always permitted to cancel a subscription at any point in time.
It’s important to note that subscription fees are charged directly through iTunes or a third-party platform like smart TV services. Therefore deleting your Netflix account doesn’t stop you from being charged.
Most Netflix subscriptions can be canceled through the Netflix web page but performing the process through iTunes on your iPhone or iPad is an alternative.
Canceling Netflix subscription is pretty simple to do, meanwhile, how to cancel solely depends on how you set up the service in the first place. If you subscribe to Netflix services directly, it is basically possible to cancel via the Netflix web page through a web browser. If on the other hand, you subscribed through iTunes, you will need to opt-out of the service using an iPad or iPhone.
As we earlier established, do not delete your Netflix account, thinking it’s going to automatically cancel your subscription and stop the fee deduction. Deleting your account has nothing to do with your subscription or payment.
