Many Netflix customers have been threatening to cancel their subscriptions following the streaming giant’s latest price rise.

Premium subscribers will be charged £17.99 a month, up from £15.99, while Netflix said the price of its basic, ad-free subscription would rise from £6.99 a month to £7.99.

The rise comes as the US firm revealed it had added 8.8 million subscribers between July and September – more than expected – partly driven by its scheme to crack down on password sharing.

It has introduced an extra fee to enable more than one household to share the same account, which the company said accounted for around 30% of the new sign-ups in countries where it was available.

But if you aren’t prepared to part with more money, how can you cancel your subscription?

How to cancel your Netflix subscription

You can cancel Netflix by clicking on the profile icon on the top right-hand corner of the site.

Here, you should click on the 'My Account' page where you will see all your account details.

From here, it is as simple as clicking 'Cancel Membership' in the first section of 'Membership and Billing'.

Netflix announce price rise

The increase has left many Netflix subscribers threatening to cancel their subscriptions.

Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, one said: “I need everyone to cancel their Netflix subscription.”

While another added: “getting rid of my subscription.”

A third said: “they don’t even have good shows to be doing that… and the audacity to charge higher when they refuse to pay actors a percentage of it.”

A fourth annoyed customer took to X voice their displeasure at the move, saying: “Cancelling our favourite shows on a cliffhanger and raising prices again.”

Ben Barringer, equity research analyst at Quilter Cheviot, said: “After a difficult couple of years, Netflix’s turnaround is complete, as its recent efforts to crack down on password sharing and subscribers leaving have paid off.

“Its latest set of numbers were strong, with subscriptions significantly better than the market was expecting and margins growing too.

“Indeed, they now guide their sales growth to be back in double digit growth, and there is no reason that they cannot kick on from here and cement its place at the top of the film and TV hierarchy.

“It will be introducing further price rises in the US from 2024, and with a strong content slate lined up, and the fact it is less impacted by the US writer and actor strikes, it is set up for a strong future.”
