Do you want to cancel your Paramount Plus account? Or is your free trial expiring and you’d rather not continue with the prescribed monthly payments? Well, there’s no need to panic. Canceling your Paramount Plus subscription can be done in just a few easy and simple steps.
Paramount Plus is compatible with multiple devices. However, these devices may use different operating systems. Android and Apple devices both use their own unique app stores and will thus require you to follow their own processes to cancel a subscription.
Therefore, before you can cancel your subscription, you will have to identify the type of device that you used to sign up for Paramount Plus. Once you have identified the correct device, you will need to follow the cancelation steps for that specific device.
Below is a list of device options and their required steps for you to successfully cancel your Paramount Plus subscription.
How to Cancel Paramount Plus on Your Device
To cancel your subscription to Paramount Plus on your Smart TV (Samsung TV, LG TV, Vizio TV), you must first access the Paramount Plus website at www.paramountplus.com and log in to your account.
Once you have logged into your account, look for your user initials; these will be in the upper right-hand corner of your screen. These initials are the username you created when registering your account.
Click on your user initials and a submenu will appear. You must select the submenu called “Account” and scroll down to the bottom of the page.
At the bottom left-hand corner of your screen, you will notice an option to “Cancel Subscription.” Click on that option and you will be able to cancel your subscription to Paramount Plus.
Gaming Console (Xbox or PS4)
The steps you need to take to cancel your subscription with Paramount Plus on your Gaming Console (Xbox or PS4) are identical to those followed when canceling your subscription on your Smart TV.
The first step that is required of you is to access your Paramount Plus website at www.paramountplus.com and log in to your account through your console’s web browser.
Once you have managed to log into your account, you will need to look for your user’s initials; this will be in the upper right corner of your screen. The username you created when registering your account will be displayed.
Click on your user initials and a submenu will appear. You then need to select the ‘Account’ submenu and scroll down to the bottom of the page.
In the bottom left corner of your screen, you will notice the option ‘Cancel Subscription’; click on this option, which will allow you to cancel your subscription to Paramount Plus.
iPhone or iPad
In order to cancel your Paramount Plus subscription on your iPhone or iPad, you are required to first go to the App Store.
When you are in the App store, you must go to the settings app and tap on your name. Your subscriptions should appear under your settings app.
If you do not see any subscriptions under your settings, you will need to go to the iTunes & App Store. Once there, tap on your Apple ID, and then sign in to your account. Continue scrolling down on your screen until you find the ‘Subscriptions’ option. Once you have found your subscriptions and found your Paramount Plus subscription, tap on it.
There should be an option to cancel your subscription once you have tapped on the Paramount Plus subscription; select this option and confirm the cancellation of your Paramount Plus account.
If there is no option available for you to cancel your subscription, your subscription would have already been canceled.
If you experience any difficulty trying to cancel your subscription on your iPad or iPhone, you can always use the Apple support option or go to www.support.apple.com and an assistant will help you.
Apple TV (4th Generation and Later)
With your AppleTV, you are only able to edit your subscriptions for the apps that are installed on your AppleTV. In order to edit your subscription settings on AppleTV, you must click on the ‘Settings’ menu on your screen. Under your settings menu, you must select ‘User & Accounts.’
You will then be required to select your own account and scroll down to find your subscriptions. Once you have selected the subscriptions menu and found your Paramount Plus subscription, you will then need to select ‘Cancel the Subscription’ and confirm the cancellation.
The option to cancel your subscription may not appear on the screen. This means that your subscription has already been canceled, and Paramount Plus will not charge you their monthly fees the following month or renew their services.
Android devices use a separate operating system from Apple or IOS. Apps on Android devices are downloaded, upgraded, and managed through the Google Playstore app.
All apps that have been downloaded from the Playstore can be uninstalled from your device. Unfortunately, uninstalling your Paramount Plus app from your mobile or Android TV only removes the app from your device and does not result in your subscription being canceled.
To cancel your Paramount Plus subscription on an Android device, you will have to use the particular Android device that downloaded the app. Access the Google Play Store on this device and look for the Paramount Plus subscription; select it once you have found it.
Click on the available option to cancel your subscription and follow the instructions that the Play Store recommends.
If you run into any problems with canceling your Paramount Plus account on your Android device, you can report your issue to the Play Store at support.google.com/googleplay//hl=en# .
Amazon Fire TV
If you purchased Paramount Plus on your Amazon Fire TV and you aren’t happy with your subscription, you can cancel it.
The first step is to access your Amazon Fire TV and then your ‘Memberships and Subscriptions’; you can find them at amazon.com/yourmembershipsandsubscriptions.
All your subscriptions that you have previously subscribed to will appear on the screen. Scroll down to your Paramount Plus subscription and select ‘Manage Subscription.’
Under this option, there will be a link to ‘Manage Your Prime Video Channels’, which you must select. Once you have done so, you will be able to find the Paramount Plus subscription that you would like to cancel.
The final step is to select the option to cancel the subscription, followed by your confirmation of cancellation.
For those who require extra help, there is always external support provided by Amazon at amazon.com/firetvsupport .

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I Cancel Paramount Plus Before the Free Trial Ends?
If you are a potential first-time subscriber to Paramount Plus, you are given a free 30-day trial period after you have signed up. The trial period gives you full access, for free, to all Paramount Plus channels and live content.
The 30-day trial period will commence the moment you sign up for Paramount Plus. Paramount Plus calculates a ‘day’ in their 30-day free trial as a 24-hour period. Therefore, if you sign up at 5 am on Monday, your first day will end 24 hours later, which will be at 5 am on Tuesday (the next day).
If you decide not to continue using Paramount Plus, you will need to cancel your subscription before your 30-day free trial expires. This will avoid you being charged a monthly subscription fee, as you would have opted out of the permanent monthly subscription with Paramount Plus.
The steps to follow in order to cancel your Paramount Plus account will differ according to what device you use, as listed above. If you are in need of additional help, visit techdaily.ca/paramount-plus-review.
