The Netflix catalog no longer meets your expectations, the subscription has become too expensive and you may want to go see if the grass is greener elsewhere? To avoid accumulating subscriptions, here’s how to unsubscribe from Netflix quickly, but also how to resubscribe without losing your data.
Netflix is the most popular SVoD service in the world, with more than 220 million subscribers worldwide in 2022, it is far ahead of other streaming platforms such as Prime Video, Canal+ Series, Disney+, OCS or the recent Paramount+ . It must be said that he has the advantage of being the first to arrive with a very powerful marketing move that continues to endure. But it also has its flaws, starting with a higher price than most of its competitors (from 8.99 to 17.99 euros depending on the package).
From now on, it is no longer even possible to share your Netflix account with your loved ones. Fortunately, the streaming platform is non-binding, so if you want to lighten your bill, it’s very simple. We explain the steps to unsubscribe from Netflix in a few clicks. Note that this manipulation is not irreversible and can therefore be used to simply suspend Netflix for a few months to resume later.
