It's no secret that lots of people sign up for HBO Now just to stream Game of Thrones and then cancel afterward so they're not charged $15 per month.
Truth be told, the process for canceling this streaming service is not as simple as you might hope. The service doesn't allow you to simply log in to your account in the browser or phone, choose your plan and ditch it in one fell swoop. Instead, you'll need to find out where you subscribed through, go to that service and turn it off from that.
Just keep in mind that if you cancel you'll no longer have access to HBO's entire library of shows, movies and documentaries. The following guide will help you figure out how to cancel HBO Now, whether you use iTunes, Google Play, Roku or Amazon.
