Step-by-Step Guide: How to Cancel Paramount Plus on Amazon

The process to cancel your subscription is mostly consistent across platforms. However, there are minor differences in the steps for mobile apps vs. Amazon Fire TV.

Follow the instructions below that match how you access Paramount Plus:

Option 1: Cancel on Amazon Prime Video

If you subscribed to Paramount Plus directly through Amazon Prime Video, use these steps:

  1. Open the Amazon Prime Video app or navigate to the website
  2. Click your account icon in the top right and select "Account & Lists"
  3. Choose "Memberships & Subscriptions"
  4. Locate the Paramount Plus subscription
  5. Click "Cancel Channel"

And that‘s it! After confirming the cancellation, your subscription will not renew at the end of the current billing period.

Option 2: Cancel Through

If you subscribed on rather than directly through Prime Video, use this method:

  1. Login to Amazon and account and click "Account & Lists"
  2. Select “Memberships & Subscriptions”
  3. Identify the Paramount Plus subscription
  4. Click “Manage Subscription”
  5. Click “Cancel Subscription” and confirm

This will immediately cancel the auto-renew at the end of the current billing cycle.

Option 3: Cancel on Mobile Devices

The process to cancel Paramount Plus is nearly identical across iPhone, iPad, and Android mobile apps:

  1. Open the Apple App Store/Google Play Store
  2. Navigate to account icon > Subscriptions
  3. Select the Paramount Plus subscription
  4. Choose "Cancel Subscription"

However, it‘s important to note – if you originally subscribed through Amazon, cancelling via the mobile app does not cancel the underlying Amazon subscription. You‘ll still need to head over to Amazon and cancel there as well.

Option 4: Cancel on Amazon Fire TV

If you access Paramount+ primarily through an Amazon Fire TV device, use these steps:

  1. Go to Settings > Applications > Manage Installed Applications
  2. Select Paramount Plus
  3. Choose Unsubscribe to cancel

Similar to the mobile apps, cancelling directly on a Fire TV does not cancel the subscription through Amazon itself. You‘ll still need to complete the cancellation on as outlined earlier.

Option 5: Cancel on Other Platforms

The cancellation process on other platforms like Apple TV, Roku, and gaming consoles is quite similar:

  1. Navigate to Account Settings or Subscriptions Manager
  2. Identify Paramount Plus
  3. Select option to cancel subscription

However, same rule applies here – you‘ll still need to complete cancellation separately on Amazon if that‘s how you originally subscribed.

Now let‘s move on to troubleshooting some common cancellation issues…

Troubleshooting Paramount Plus Cancellation Problems

While the vast majority of users have no trouble canceling Paramount Plus on Amazon, there are occasional issues reported:

Can‘t locate Paramount Plus subscription

  • Follow up with Amazon Customer Service if charges continue after canceled

Lose access to some Viacom channels or shows

  • Certain channels and programs require the paid Paramount Plus plan
  • Downgrading just your subscription tier will limit access to some content

If any other problems come up with canceling Paramount Plus on Amazon, your best bet is to contact Amazon Prime Customer Service for assistance.

Now let‘s examine some alternatives to cancellation that allow you to retain access to Paramount Plus while lowering costs…

Alternatives to Cancelling Paramount Plus Entirely

If you enjoy the Paramount Plus content but can‘t quite justify keeping your subscription at the regular price, consider these money-saving alternatives:

Downgrade to an Annual Plan

The annual Paramount Plus subscription is $49.99/year, which breaks down to just $4.16 per month – over 40% savings compared to the monthly price. Downgrading your billing cycle can make keeping the service much more affordable.

Rotate Subscriptions Every Few Months

Rather than pay for Paramount Plus year-round, you could subscribe for 1-2 months when they have content you want to watch, then cancel and rotate to another service. This allows you to cut costs while still accessing Paramount Plus periodically.

Bundle With Walmart+ for Lower combined Price

If you have a Walmart+ membership you can add Paramount Plus for just $12.95 per month total, lowering the regular Paramount Plus price by 30%.

Watch Free Content on Pluto TV Instead

Pluto TV is a free streaming TV provider owned by Paramount. It offers over 250 live channels plus thousands of on-demand movies and shows. While the content library isn‘t as robust as Paramount Plus, it can supplement if you cancel your paid subscription.

Hopefully the analysis and money-saving alternatives provide enough tips and information should you decide to cancel Paramount Plus through Amazon Prime Video or Let me know if any part of the cancellation instructions need further clarification!
