Netflix is Making it Easier to Cancel
Netflix is making it easier for users to cancel their subscription. They’re sending out an automated prompt to all users that have not watched anything on Netflix for more than a year after they joined.
The in-app messages and emails will ask users if they wish to continue paying for their accounts. If they don’t, users can follow instructions to cancel it themselves, or just wait, and Netflix will automatically cancel their subscription.
What if I Change My Mind?
Not to worry, in a recent blog post, Eddy Wuu, Director of Product Innovation at Netflix, confirmed that “anyone who cancels their account and then rejoins within 10 months will still have their favorites, profiles, viewing preferences and account details just as they left them.”
This is excellent news if you’re on the fence about canceling your Netflix account. Effectively, you’ve got 10 months to decide if the service brings enough value to your life to justify the price, and if it does, you can pick up right where you left off.
And, if you decide not to continue within the 10 months, then choosing to cancel your Netflix account was the right decision after all!
