Some issues to keep in mind
- Even if your subscription period is not over, you can cancel your account. Only when the current billing period is over, will you be able to effectively close the account. Till then you can continue watching shows and movies.
- After canceling your account, in case you decide to re-subscribe, you can note that you can resume watching shows and movies, ten months after your account expires. So if you rejoin within ten months, you do not need to start all over again, all your viewing activity will still be saved.
- There are no charges for cancellation of a Netflix account. If you have subscribed to any discs by mail, you need to return them though to avoid charges.
