Cancel or update a subscription payment
When you have an active paid subscription, you’ll be automatically charged the price of the subscription at the start of each new billing cycle until you cancel.
Cancel a payment
You can cancel at any time by clicking the channel’s Unsubscribe btn, or by following these steps:
- Visit your Purchases page
- Find the subscription under Active subscriptions
- Click the Cancel subscription link next to that subscription
- Confirm that you’d like to cancel by clicking Unsubscribe
Once you cancel a subscription you will not be charged again unless you re-subscribe. You’ll still be able to watch all the videos included in the channel until the end of the current subscription period.
You can re-subscribe to the same channel at any time if you like, but you won’t receive a second free trial. If you re-subscribe while you still have access to the channel, you’ll be charged again when the current subscription period ends.
