With its new package changes, you may be considering canceling your DirecTV Now subscription and replacing it with a lower-cost service. We’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know to cancel your DirecTV Now subscription without hassle.

How to Cancel Your DirecTV Now Subscription

You can easily cancel your DirecTV Now subscription from any device, but we recommend doing it from a desktop or laptop computer, as apps sometimes offer a limited view of your subscription settings.

Can I restart my DirecTV Now subscription later?

DirecTV Now will let you restart your account at any time. Once you cancel, you can still watch for the remainder of the month which you paid for, or for the remainder of your free trial period. After the service canceled, you won’t be charged until you reactivate your account.

Are there are any good DirecTV Now alternatives?

DirecTV Now’s newly slimmed-down channel package and higher price make it a bit of a gamble for those who don’t want or need HBO. Sling TV offers a similar, slim approach at a lower price, but you may also want to consider options such as fuboTV, PlayStation Vue, Hulu + Live TV, Philo, YouTube TV, or AT&T WatchTV.
