How to Cancel Your DirecTV Stream Subscription
You can easily cancel your DirecTV Stream 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.
*Note: Some images may refer to “DirecTV Now”. AT&T’s cord-cutting service was previously called DirecTV Now. The name changed to DirecTV Stream in late 2021.
1. Go to your settings (top right corner gear symbol)
2. Click on “Account Details” above the User ID (email address)
3. Select “Manage subscription”
4. Scroll to the bottom of the page and select “I want to cancel”
5. Select “Continue to cancel”
6. Optional: Negotiate for a lower subscription price in the chat box on the right
7. Click on “No need to chat, just cancel”
Can I restart my DirecTV Stream subscription later?
DirecTV Stream 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 Stream alternatives?
DirecTV Stream’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, Hulu + Live TV, Philo, YouTube TV, or AT&T WatchTV.
