How to Cancel HBO Max Subscription or Trial?

How to Cancel HBO Max Subscription or Trial? HBO Max is one of the most comprehensive streaming services available today. It has an enormous collection of mainstream and indie cinema, HBO series, and Max originals like Lovecraft Country and Search Party, all for $14.99 a month. HBO Max will offer Warner Bros movies for streaming on the same day they are released in theaters.

Considering all you get for $14.99, HBO Max isn’t a bad deal when compared to other services like Netflix and Hulu. However, it is still one of the more expensive streaming platforms. There are a few ways you can cancel your membership if you find it necessary. These depend on how you subscribed to HBO Max, to begin with, and what hardware you’re using. Whether you don’t like the streamer after the free trial or you want to cancel in the middle of your billing cycle, we’ve put together this guide to the most common cancellation methods.

How to Cancel HBO Max Subscription or Trial?

Canceling with a Mobile Device

With the HBO Max app, you can cancel your subscription whether you’re using an iPhone, iPad, or similar Android device.

  • To access your profile, open HBO Max and tap the Profile icon in the bottom-right corner. Tap the gear-shaped Settings icon (upper left).
  • On the next screen, tap Billing Information. You will see one of two options here (based on what service provider your Max subscription is with).
  • If you see Manage Subscription on the next screen, proceed ahead and tap that. On the last screen, tap Cancel Subscription. Instead of Manage Subscription, you will see Learn More, so proceed to Step 4.
  • On the Learn More page, you can find a list of HBO Max service providers. Locate your subscription provider, then follow the steps to cancel your Max subscription.

Canceling with a Computer

With a Mac or Windows PC, you can cancel HBO Max if you prefer to manage your subscriptions using a desktop computer or laptop.

  • In addition, if you cancel mid-month, you can continue streaming for the remainder of that month.
  • If you delete the HBO Max app, your subscription remains active. Be sure to follow the above steps to cancel your subscription or you will be charged.
