If you have a Netflix account that you haven't used in over a year then you might want to pay attention. After cancellation, Netflix will hold onto their account details, profiles, favourites, and viewing preferences for another 10 months, if they choose to return. In its announcement on Thursday, Netflix's director of product innovation, Eddy Wu, noted that "these inactive accounts represent less than half of one percent of our overall member base, only a few hundred thousand".
Starting this week, subscribed members who have not watched anything for a year will get emails and in-app notifications asking them if they would want to continue their Netflix subscription. The potential termination of those are already factored into its financial guidance, he added.
