Netflix will help inactive members cancel accounts

The company said it will begin asking members who have not watched anything on Netflix for multiple years to confirm that they still want their accounts. Members will start seeing emails or in-app notifications this week and if they don’t confirm that they want to keep subscribing, Netflix will automatically cancel their subscriptions. The company will keep these accounts’ favorites, profiles, viewing preferences and other details on hand for 10 months so they can be restored for any accounts that rejoin. – Ben Munson, FierceVideo »
