Thinking of changing your monthly Netflix subscription? Here’s how to do it.

There are a couple of reasons why you might want to upgrade or downgrade your Netflix Plan. For one, if you own a family account but don’t actually share it with a house member, you may want to downgrade to a cheaper plan, especially since the streaming platform is cracking down on password sharing.



On the flip side, solo Netflix users may want to upgrade to the Premium plan if they plan on actually sharing an account with family members. The good thing about this plan is that the monthly fee can be divided into four members, so each user is actually paying less compared to the Basic and Standard plans.

But whatever your reason might be, we’ll give you a step-by-step guide on how you can easily upgrade or downgrade your Netflix plan.

How to switch Netflix subscription plans

Step 1: First, of course, you should already know what plan you want to switch to. Here’s a detailed comparison of all Netflix Plans to see which one actually fits your current needs.

Step 2: Now that you know which plan to switch to, let’s start the process. First, open your Netflix account. It’s best to do this process on a web browser.

On the top left corner, open the settings then click ‘Account.’


Step 2: In the Plan Details section, click ‘Change Plan.’


Step 3: Click the plan you want to switch to then click ‘Continue.’


Step 4: It will show you a breakdown of your current and other plans. If you’re sure you want to switch, click ‘Confirm Change.’ Then, you shall receive a confirmation that the change was successful.


When will my Netflix plan upgrade/downgrade take effect?

As a bonus for the users who will be upgrading to a more expensive plan, the upgrade will take effect immediately so they can enjoy the new features right away.

Meanwhile, for those who will be downgrading to a cheaper plan, the downgrade will take effect on the next billing date, so users can continue to enjoy the premium features before they lose them.

That’s it. These are the simple steps you need to follow if you want to change your Netflix subscription plan.
