Netflix is ultimately not for you. After testing the VOD service, you simply want to unsubscribe. For that, it is not very complicated. We explain the maneuver just below.
Yes Netflix offers several thousand series, films and documentaries, you may be tired of the service and want to unsubscribe. Whether you want to do it from your computer or your smartphone, the procedure is quite simple. We explain how to do it right here.
How to unsubscribe from Netflix
There are several reasons why you might want to unsubscribe from the streaming platform. First of all, the Netflix catalog may have disappointed you, despite its many series, films and documentaries. It is also possible that you have just decided to take advantage of the free month offered by the VOD service. During this period, you binge watermarked the best series from the Netflix catalog, like Squid Game, Stranger Things, 13 Reasons Why Where Dark. Or, did you prefer to join Amazon Prime Video to watch The Boys, the excellent adaptation of the comics created by Garth Ennis.
Or the appeal of Disney + has seduced you, and more particularly season 2 of The Mandalorian, which for the moment it must be said keeps all its promises. In addition, we must not forget that another major competitor has been present for a year on the market: Apple +, Apple’s streaming platform, with its excellent series such as The Morning Show, winner of the Emmy Awards.
Finally, and this is perhaps the main reason that some subscribers are currently shying away from the service: Netflix’s prices have increased significantly since the service’s birth. In 2021, we went from € 7.99 to € 8.99 / month for the essential subscription, from € 11.99 to € 13.99 / month for the standard subscription, and from € 15.99 to € 17.99 / month for the premium subscription. Which now places Netflix as the most expensive SVoD service on the market.
