How to cancel your account at Netflix, Amazon Prime, and others

It’s time to check your current streaming subscriptions and drop the ones that you haven’t used for several months. During the process of cancelling a streaming service, you may need to go through several pages or pop-ups. Urging you to not cancel or to at least settle for a less expensive (and usually less feature-filled) version of the service.

According to the BBC, several lawsuits by such organizations as The Norwegian Consumer Council and Public Citizen in the US are claiming that Amazon Prime’s cancelling process manipulates consumers into keeping their subscriptions.

Here’s how you can cancel:

Netflix:

Find your current subscription status at Netflix by clicking on your personal icon on the top-right corner and choosing “Account.”

The second section down should be “Plan Details,” and you’ll not only be able to change your plan, but you’ll immediately see if you have a live DVD plan.

If you want to leave the service completely, there is a “Cancel Membership” button to the left in the “Membership & Billing” section.”

Amazon Prime:

You can cancel that paid annual membership if you’ve just converted from a free trial or “if you and your account did not make any eligible purchases or take advantage of Prime benefits since your latest Prime membership charge” (in other words, if you’ve never used any of your Prime benefits since you paid for it).

YouTube TV:

You can either cancel or pause your YouTube TV subscription (links for either process are on the same page).

Pausing is a good option if for some reason (a vacation, a work project, temporary financial difficulties) you don’t want to use the subscription for anywhere from four weeks to six months.

If you want to leave YouTube TV entirely, select “Cancel Now” on that same page. You will still have service until the end of your payment period

Apple TV Plus:

To cancel on your Mac, go to the App Store, click your name (at the bottom of the page) and then “View Information” (at the top). Go to “Subscriptions” > “Manage.” Click on “Edit” next to the subscription you want to cancel and select “Cancel Subscription.”

On an iPhone or iPad, go to “Settings,” select your name, then “Subscriptions.” Select the subscription you want to leave, and Tap on Cancel Subscription.
