PlayStation Now offers an impressive selection of games, ranging from old favorites to some titles exclusive to the Sony-owned streaming service. Many gamers choose to take advantage of the 7-day free trial, while others pay for monthly, quarterly or yearly subscriptions. 

Cancelling your PS Now subscription before the next renewal period is fairly simple, but you’ll need to follow the instructions below to ensure that you aren’t billed for the next pay period.

You must cancel at least 24 hours prior to the next renewal date in order to avoid getting charged. If you miss the cutoff time, your subscription will be renewed for the predefined period, whether it be one month, three months or a full year.

Even if you cancel well in advance of your upcoming renewal date, your subscription will remain active until that date and you will still have full access to all games during that period.
