How to change your Netflix subscription plan

In case you are planning to upgrade or downgrade your Netflix subscription plan, here are the steps you can follow:

  1. Open the Netflix app, or website on your desktop and login
  2. Go to the “Accounts” category in the menu
  3. Under the “Plan details” category, you will see an option of “Change Plan”
  4. Select your preferable plan and click “Continue”
  5. Finally, click on “save and update” and you are good to go

If you have upgraded your plan, it will take effect immediately. However, since Netflix is a prepaid service, “your billing date will change based on the remaining balance of your last payment. ”

On the other hand, if you have downgraded your plan to that of a lower price, it will take effect on your next billing date. Hence, you can continue to use the high-end plan features until the next billing date.
