Now that 'Game of Thrones' is finally over, here's how to cancel your HBO Now subscription

HBOEnding your HBO Now subscription so quickly after the end of ‘Game of Thrones’ is a strategic move that Cersei Lannister would appreciate.
  • The final episode of the final season of “Game of Thrones” aired on HBO Sunday night.
  • At $US15 a month, HBO’s subscription service, HBO Now, is among the more expensive standalone streaming services.
  • Perhaps you’re thinking about getting rid of HBO Now. If so, we’ve got you covered.

As of Sunday night, your “Game of Thrones” watch has officially ended.

The years-long blockbuster show concluded over the weekend, and that means you’ve finally got Sunday nights free again.

It also means that, unless you’re looking forward to another HBO show, it may be time to cancel that expensive HBO Now subscription. Here’s how:

1. Head over to HBO Now on your web browser or load the app on your preferred mobile device.


In case you’ve forgotten where it is, here’s a link to HBO Now.

2. Click into settings.


It’s at the upper-right corner of the screen.

3. Then click “billing information.”


It should be the second option under profile.

4. Depending on how you subscribe to HBO Now, there are different ways to go from here.


Since I subscribe to HBO Now through Roku, I had to click through to my Roku account to cancel HBO Now. When I got there, Roku had an unsubscribe option.

But if you subscribe directly through HBO, the process is a little more involved: Instead of selecting an unsubscribe button, you select the “cancel your subscription” option. When it brings you to a new page, you’ll toggle “auto renew” to off.

In this way, you don’t cancel your HBO Now subscription effective immediately; it’s still available to access until your final pay period ends. If you’ve paid recently, you’ll have another month of access.

For a full list of instructions for cancelling HBO Now through various payment systems, check out HBO’s instructions right here.

That’s it! You’re done.


Just like the final season of “Game of Thrones!” Boom!
