Home to hits like Solar Opposites, Little Fires Everywhere, and The Handmaid’s Tale, Hulu is one of the top streaming services. But like all good things, you can get tired of it (especially if you’ve finally binged all the shows and movies you wanted to watch). Rather than pay for multiple subscriptions, simply cancel your Hulu subscription. Getting rid of your subscription is pretty simple. Here are the steps you need to follow to cancel Hulu.
Step by Step: How to Cancel Your Hulu Subscription
If you’ve ever had to cancel a phone or cable subscription, you know what a pain it is to deal with customer service agents that try to talk you out of your decision. The good news is that canceling Hulu can be done completely online unless you really want to talk to someone, in which case you can give them a call.
To cancel Hulu you need to work with whichever system you are billed through. This means if you signed up via Amazon, iTunes, Roku, etc. you’ll need to cancel through the third-party. Once you cancel Hulu you will receive a confirmation email that your subscription is canceled.
Cancel Through Hulu
