How to Cancel Your Hulu Subscription

Close or hold a Hulu account on any device

The steps for canceling a Hulu account differ depending on which device you're using and how you initially signed up. If you added subscriptions to other services through your Hulu account, you may have to cancel those subscriptions individually.

Hulu works hard to keep you an active subscriber, so it will provide additional offers to keep you around. If you still want to cancel, select No, Cancel Subscription, and your Hulu subscription will end.

You'll maintain access to Hulu through the end of the billing period for which you've already paid.

How to Cancel Hulu on iPhone and Android

While you can create a Hulu account on an iPhone, you can't unsubscribe using an iPhone. The Hulu app for iPhone just tells you to use the website to manage your subscription. You can, however, manage your subscription on the Android version of the Hulu app:

  1. Launch the Hulu app and tap Account in the bottom-right corner.
