Sling TV is one of the leading streaming services in the United States. It has some good quality content, but sadly not that much of it. Therefore, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that sooner or later, somebody is going to want to cancel their Sling TV subscripion.
On this page, we are going to walk you through how to cancel Sling TV. The process can vary depending on the device that you own, so make sure that you read all of these instructions!
Before we get to how to cancel Sling TV, let’s talk a little bit about their cancellation policy.
What Is The Sling TV Cancellation Policy?
Sling TV does not offer a refund policy. If you have a free trial, then the subscription will be canceled instantly. If you have paid for your Sling TV subscription, then the subscription will be canceled on the next billing date.
If you consult this chart, you will get an idea as to when your membership will end, based upon when you cancel the subscription and the type of membership that you have.
|Membership Type||When Membership is Canceled|
|30-Day Billing Cycle||On the next billing date|
|Multi-Month Purchase||At the end of the prepaid months|
Remember, you are not tied into any contracts with Sling TV. This means that you are free to cancel the subscription whenever you want. Of course, Sling TV will do its best to ensure that you do not cancel. They will try and convince you to stay! However, they aren’t going to hide the cancellation options.
You are able to cancel your subscription up until the day before renewal. So, for example, if your subscription is set to renew on 31st May, then you cancel any day up to, and including, the 30th May. If you leave it until the 31st May, then you will be charged. You will not get a refund for this.
How To Cancel Sling TV
For the most part, you should be able to cancel Sling TV using their website. So, try that method below first. If you don’t see your subscription there (or don’t know the name of your Sling TV account), then move on to the method for your device.
On The Website
The easiest method for canceling your Sling TV subscription is via their website. You must have your username (email address) and password to cancel the membership using this method:
- Head to the Sling TV website
- Select ‘Login’
- Click ‘My Account’
- Look for your subscription and click ‘Cancel’
- Confirm the cancelation
At the end of the process, you should receive an email saying that your subscription is canceled. If you don’t receive this is an hour or two, then go back and double-check that you have properly canceled.
If you have managed to get your subscription through your Roku TV, then you will not be able to use the website. Instead, you will need to follow this process:
- Press the HOME button on your remote control.
- Find ‘Channel Store’
- Select ‘Sling TV’
- Click ‘Manage Subscription’
- Click ‘Cancel Subscription’
You should receive a visual confirmation on your screen that the Roku TV subscription has been canceled.
If you have purchased Sling through Apple TV, then your best option is to either cancel through the Apple website or on your iOS device. You can follow these steps (assuming you are using your iOS device):
- Open the App Store
- Sign In
- Select Account Settings
- Select Subscriptions
- Find Sling TV and cancel it.
The process for canceling on iOS is exactly the same as if you were canceling using Apple TV, so we won’t go through the process again. Please refer to the previous section.
What we will tell you is that you do not necessarily have to cancel using your Apple device. You can also log in to your Apple account on your PC. You will be able to find a list of all of your subscriptions there. Of course, the easiest method would be to use your iOS device to cancel. It will only take a few minutes.
If you have purchased Sling TV on your Android device, then you will likely have created your account using Google Play. You will not be able to use this account to cancel on the Sling TV website, even though it will give you login details. You must cancel through the Google Play store. You can follow these steps:
- Load up Google Play on your Android device or in your web browser, if using a PC.
- Login to your account, if not logged in.
- Select your profile picture in the right-hand corner.
- Find ‘Subscriptions’ on this list.
- Find ‘Sling TV’ and cancel.
Google will send you an email to your registered email address to confirm your cancelation. If you do not receive this, then you may want to double-check that you have canceled your Sling TV account.
Canceling Sling TV isn’t too difficult. In most cases, you can cancel through their website. If you do not have a Sling TV account, then you can cancel through the ‘manage subscriptions’ option. This will appear on Roku, Android, and iOS. The process only takes a few minutes. Do bear in mind that Sling TV does not issue refunds.
Is It Easy To Cancel Sling TV?
Yes. You can cancel most Sling TV accounts through their website. The process should only take a couple of minutes.
Can You Cancel Sling TV Before Trial Ends?
Yes. However, your subscription will end immediately. So, if you have a trial for 7-days and cancel on the 2nd day, you will lose 6-days of your trial. It is best to cancel at the last minute (before the billing starts again)
How To Cancel Sling TV Free Trial
If you have a Sling TV free trial, how you cancel it will be dependent on your device. In most cases, you will need to cancel the subscription through the Sling TV website.
