    Hi, we joined Netflix back in November to trial and watch the Gilmore Girls latest run.

    We have now found out we are still being charged by Netflix? How do we get reimbursed and yes I will need to cancel from process above?

      Hi Debbie,

      Thanks for your question.

      Once you sign-up for an account with Netflix, you’ll be automatically charged every month, unless you cancel your subscription before the end of your current billing period.

      To cancel your subscription, just go to and log in to your account. Click the drop-down menu beside your username and select Your Account. In the Membership and Billing section, select Cancel Membership.
