How to Cancel Netflix on the iPad

by Aaron Wein

Netflix provides a free app for your iPad to help sync your Netflix account with the tablet and optimize the user interface for the iPad's limited screen space. You can cancel the app just as easily as you installed it -- whether that means merely signing out of your account or deleting it. If you need to unsubscribe to your Netflix streaming service completely, you can do so by using the iPad's built-in Safari Web browser.

Tap "Yes" to finish logging out. Your iPad's link to Netflix is canceled.

Delete
