How to Cancel Your Amazon Prime Video Subscription.
With Amazon Prime Video, you can subscribe to streaming services such as Showtime, Paramount+, and BritBox. But what if you want to cancel your subscription to TV and movie channels on Amazon so you won’t be charged for those services anymore?.
Luckily, your Amazon account on the Amazon website lists all of your subscriptions on a single subscription page where you can manage and cancel Amazon subscriptions you no longer need.
TV and Movie Channel Subscriptions on Amazon Prime Video
An Amazon Prime membership gives you access to many streaming TV shows and movies that you can watch at no additional cost beyond the price of a Prime subscription.
However, you may have noticed that in order to watch some shows and movies from some providers, you need to subscribe to a Prime video channel such as AMC, Cinemax or STARZ.
Many of these channels offer free trials. Even though the trials are free for Amazon Prime members, you will still need to enter your credit card and billing information because after the trial period, Amazon will charge you for the subscription until you cancel it.
As a rule, the subscription to the channel is automatically renewed until you cancel the subscription. This is also true for other types of subscriptions such as Amazon Music and Amazon Prime memberships.
Where to Manage Your Subscriptions on Amazon
On the Membership & Subscriptions page, you can manage all aspects of, you guessed it, your membership and any subscription services you have ordered. To access this page in a web browser, do the following:
Sign in to your Amazon.com account.Hover over your account and listings in the top right corner of the page. A drop-down menu will appear.

If you like, sort your subscriptions by favorites, by date of renewal – either chronological or reverse chronological – or alphabetically by title. You’ll also see a search box so you can quickly find the subscription you’re looking for.
This page will display all of your subscriptions, and for each of them will display the name and description of the service, the date of renewal and a link to your payment history. If the service is being paid using your primary membership payment method, this will be indicated. If you choose to do so, you’ll see a link to update your Prime payment method.
For subscriptions using other payment methods, you’ll see the last four digits of the credit card along with a “Change” link if you’d like to change the credit card charged for this service.
How to Cancel TV and Movie Channel Subscriptions

Finally, you can choose to “Cancel Now” and get a refund to end your subscription immediately.
