How to Cancel Netflix Plan [on Web Browser, iTunes, Google Play]

Canceling a subscription to an online service, whether it's a cloud transfer, backup service, or music streaming service, can sometimes be a challenge due to varying cancellation procedures. Fortunately, Netflix makes canceling its streaming service relatively straightforward. You can cancel your Netflix subscription at any time, but the process depends on how you've been billed — whether it's directly through Netflix, via iTunes, or through another third-party. It's important to note that uninstalling any Netflix apps or deleting your Netflix profile will not automatically cancel your subscription, and you will still be billed. If you're ready to cancel Netflix, here's how:
