How to Cancel Your Hulu Account

Is Hulu just not cutting it for you when it comes to watching movies and television online?  Perhaps you found a better service in our Hulu Alternatives article and want to use it instead?  Whatever the reason, you can delete your Hulu account if you want.

Your Hulu account will only cost you money if you have a subscription to Hulu Plus and/or the Showtime extension.  So you can just cancel your subscription and revert to a free Hulu account, and you won't be charged any money to use Hulu (but your viewing options will be limited accordingly).

However, if you want to go all the way and delete your free Hulu account as well, then we'll show you how to do that, too.

How to cancel a Hulu Plus account

  1. Go to www.hulu.com in your web browser and log in.

  2. Move your mouse cursor over your name in the top-right corner until a drop-down menu appears.  Click Account.
