What Is Showtime?
So, you’re wondering what the fuss is all about with Showtime. It’s actually an American premium television network that’s owned by ViacomCBS, and it’s available both as a standalone streaming service and as an add-on with lots of other streaming services like Hulu and YouTube TV. With Showtime, you can watch movies and shows, such as Billions, Desus & Mero and The Chi— plus a huge library of films like Ali and Titanic.
Showtime also gives you access to exclusive content and series like Years & Years, Shameless and City on a Hill. On top of that, if you have a SHOWTIME account with another streaming service like Amazon or Roku, you can watch movies and TV on other devices without needing to log in. So if that sounds attractive to you—then read on to find out how to cancel your SHOWTIME subscription.
How Can I Cancel My Showtime Subscription?
It’s easy to cancel your Showtime subscription if you no longer want to continue watching the streaming service. You can cancel your subscription at any time and you won’t be charged for anything after the initial billing cycle.
Here are the steps needed to cancel:
- Log into your account online and select “Manage Subscriptions” in the account settings.
- Click on “Cancel Subscription”, confirm that you want to cancel and continue with the cancelation process.
- Once complete, you will receive an email confirming that your Showtime subscription has been canceled.
If you need help canceling or have questions about charges, contact Showtime customer service directly at 1-888-583-7242 or visit their website for further help.
What Are the Requirements to Cancel Showtime?
Canceling Showtime is easy, but there are a few requirements you should know beforehand. Here’s what you need to look out for:
Are You in the Free Trial Period?
If you signed up for the free trial period, you have 7 days from the time of signing up to cancel it. There’s no fee, and no commitment—you just have to make sure you cancel within the 7 day window.
Are You Outside the Free Trial Period?
If you’re already outside of the 7 day window and are a paid subscriber, you can still cancel at any time with no additional charges. All you have to do is visit Showtime’s website and follow the steps for canceling your subscription—it’s super easy.
How Else Can You Cancel?
If you purchased Showtime through Apple TV or Roku, then you’ll need to contact them directly and they will be able to assist with canceling your subscription. The same applies if someone purchased a gift card or gift subscription—they will need to contact Apple TV or Roku customer service directly in order to cancel their subscription.
By keeping these requirements in mind, canceling your Showtime subscription will be a breeze!
Are There Any Fees to Cancel the Subscription?
When you cancel your subscription to Showtime, you’ll be able to access content until your current billing cycle ends. This means you won’t have to pay for any unused time. However, it’s important to note that some services, like Apple TV and Roku, do charge a fee when you cancel a subscription mid-billing cycle.
If you’re using Showtime through a third-party provider, like the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, the website’s refund policy will become applicable when canceling. Make sure to check the policies of these third-party sites before canceling your Showtime subscription.
Finally, be aware that it might take up to two weeks for your cancelation request to take effect if you’re canceling through an online streaming service or cable provider. Keep in mind that if you don’t pay the full month’s charges for those services, then pro-rated refunds won’t be issued.
How Long Does the Cancelation Process Take?
Have you ever been in the situation where you need to cancel a subscription, and it’s taking forever? Luckily, canceling Showtime won’t take up too much of your time.
The length of the cancelation process depends on how you subscribed. Basically, if you subscribed to Showtime directly (like through the app or showtime.com), you get to cancel it immediately — no waiting required.
But if you subscribed through another streaming partner (like Hulu, Roku or prime video), it can take a few days for your cancelation request to process; the time-frame is different for each partner, so it’s best to check with them about how long your cancelation will take.
For example, if you subscribed through Apple TV Channels:
- Open Settings > select Users & Accounts > then Subscriptions
- Select “Showtime” from the list of active subscriptions
- Choose “Cancel Subscription” and click “Confirm”
- You will receive an email confirming that your subscription has been canceled
It’s important to remember that after you cancel your subscription, Showtime will still be available until the end of your current billing cycle — so don’t unplug just yet!
What Are My Options After I Cancel Showtime?
So you’ve decided to cancel Showtime and are trying to figure out what your options are after cancelation. Here’s the deal—it really depends on what kind of subscription or package you have.
Cable TV and Streaming Service Subscribers
If you’re a cable TV or streaming service subscriber (e.g., Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Prime Video, etc.), log into your account and follow the steps to cancel your subscription. Depending on the provider, you may be able to recoup the cost of any unused portion of the subscription.
If you purchased Showtime through showtime.com, there’s no need to contact customer service; simply log in to your account and follow the steps for monthly billing subscribers to cancel your subscription. To make sure that you’re not charged for additional months after canceling, make sure to note when your next billing cycle due date is before completing the cancelation process.
Calling Customer Service
For those who haven’t logged into their accounts in a while or need further assistance with canceling their Showtime subscriptions, it’s best to call customer service at 1-866-365-0686. Customer service agents can answer questions about any additional fees that may be incurred before making adjustments or ending your subscription entirely.
