Detailed Instructions on How to Delete Your HBO Now Account

1. Determine the service that you used to sign up for HBO Now

Determine who your service provider is, or in other words, find out where you downloaded the HBO Now app from (Google, Apple, Amazon, etc.).

If you’re unsure, you can open HBO Now in the app on your device or in your web browser, and then select menu > Settings > Billing Information. Click on Manage Your Subscriptions, and this should take you to your appropriate service’s website if you don’t know which service you were using.

Click Manage Your Subscription in your settings to identify which service you signed up for HBO Now with

2. Open the service and sign in to your profile

Open the service, either by opening an app like the Play Store or App Store. If you signed up using a console, turn it on and sign in. Make sure that you are using the same profile that was used to originally sign up for HBO Now.

Open the app you signed up for HBO Now with. If you used a console, turn it on. If you used another service, sign in

3. Locate where you can manage your subscriptions

Find your standard menu button and click on it. Then click on Account, and then click Subscriptions.

Locate where you can manage your subscriptions within the service you signed up for HBO Now with

4. Find and end your subscription to HBO Now

5. Confirm the cancellation of your HBO Now account

Click Cancel Subscription to confirm the cancellation. You now no longer possess a subscription to HBO Now, and after the end of your billing period, will no longer be able to use it to stream HBO movies and shows. You can sign up again at any time, but you will not be eligible for another one-month free trial.

6. Continue to watch HBO Now until the end of your billing period

If you cancel your subscription, you can still continue to use HBO Now until the end of the current billing period. Meaning that if your next billing period ends on the 28th, and you cancel on the 13th, you can still use the service until the 28th, because you have already paid for it.

Remember that if you have a subscription to HBO through your TV service provider, you will need to cancel your HBO Go service through your provider. HBO Go is free for you to use – it’s the television service that you are paying for (and thus need to cancel). Try calling your service provider to cancel your HBO subscription.
