How to cancel your Hulu free trial so you don't get charged for a paid subscription



It's easy to cancel a Hulu free trial if you tested out the service but don't want to pay for it.

  • You can cancel a Hulu free trial if you've tried the streaming service but don't want to pay for a longer subscription.
  • Hulu's seven-day free trial gives you access to its extensive library of shows and movies, and you can also sign up for a free trial of Hulu + Live TV to watch live programming.
  • If you have already had a Hulu account in the past, you will not be able to get a free trial.

Commitment can be scary stuff. And when there's money involved, well, commitment is all the worse.

Fortunately, with Hulu you can enjoy a commitment-free seven-day trial that you can cancel at any time.
A Hulu free trial lets you try out the service's massive content library, which is available for on-demand viewing. You can also unlock the Hulu + Live TV service for a free, one-week trial, which, in addition, lets you watch live programming from dozens of channels.

If you are in the midst of a Hulu free trial and have decided the platform isn't worth your commitment, however, you can cancel it any time before the seven days have elapsed and avoid a charge.

Here's how to end your free Hulu trial.
