Existing Netflix customers
Once you're connected to your chosen Entertainment plan:
- You don’t need to cancel your existing Netflix account. You can use your existing Netflix details when you activate and this will link to your Spark Broadband plan. In great news, this plan doesn’t change or create new accounts, it updates your billing preferences for it to be included in your Spark plan.
- If you’re currently paying for a Netflix account, this payment will stop as soon as you activate your Spark inclusion. It doesn’t matter how you were paying (whether you paid by Credit/Debit Card, your Spark bill, iTunes, Google Play or Apple TV).
- If you currently have a Prepaid promotion, the value of the voucher you have remaining will stay on your account once you activate your Spark inclusion. This value will stay remaining until you leave the Entertainment plan.
