How to Cancel Paramount Plus

This article is an instalment in Cancel It, a series dedicated to helping you cancel your subscriptions, because parting ways isn't always as easy as it should be. 

Gone are the days of heading over to a service’s website to cancel a membership. Now, with more platforms out there handling payment processing to make the purchasing process as easy as possible for the end service, most services require you to cancel the subscription through the platform you used to sign up — including Paramount Plus. 

This means that if you signed up for the streaming service on an iPad, you’ll need to cancel Paramount Plus through your Apple ID on that device. The same applies to those who subscribed on an Android, who will need to cancel it through the Play Store. Signed up through Roku? Best head on over to the Roku website to cancel it.
