Netflix Kills Subscription Payment Via Apple iTunes

Quiet weekend… Tracking a light mix to end the year… Arctic cold will follow

Now again, these high charges taken by Apple became the reason of these disputes and resulting Netflix has removed in-app subscription for iOS users.

Netflix didn't tell VentureBeat when it issued the global payment change, however, another source told VentureBeat that it happened in late November. Netflix is continuing to distance itself from Apple's policy of taxing iTunes purchases at your local tax rate.

Not only will new users be excluded from paying through iTunes, existing users who have previously cancelled the payment for at least a month and wants to resubscribe will also be excluded from the option of iTunes billing. After all, Netflix remained the top grossing app last month among all apps in the App Store and Google Play Store combined. Current members are still able to use iTunes to pay for their Netflix subscription going forward. However, if you miss a payment, you won't be able to resubscribe through the iOS app.

At the start of this year, Netflix did experiment with disabling in-app subscription options for Netflix subscribers in different countries, and as of now, Netflix says the experiment has concluded and the change has been made to all of the Netflix platforms.

If you use Netflix on an Apple device, chances are you not only download the app from iTunes, but also pay for your monthly subscription from there as well. Fortnite developer Epic Games is hoping to take a big chunk of revenue from Steam, the largest storefront for PC games, by launching its own storefront and offering developers an 88 percent revenue cut. The move would eliminate Apple from the purchasing equation, particularly its significant cut of the subscription fees Netflix gets from the in-app signup.
