Why are People Cancelling Their Disney Plus Subscription?
While Netflix, no doubt, has a variety like no other, its content is also a nightmare on Elm’s street to browse. Disney Plus, on the other hand, is slimmed down and more focused. The whole streaming platform is housed in a sturdy framework.
However, despite all its pros, some people may just wish to cancel Disney+ because their purpose has been met. Even though a Disney+ monthly subscription only sets you back by $7.99/month, it can still become one-subscription-too-many for some people.
After all, how many streaming platforms are binge-watchers expected to subscribe to? Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, Prime Video, HBO Max, and the list just keeps going on… Every platform has its own collection of movies/TV shows with special licensing rights.
So, perhaps it’s just easier to cancel your subscription after watching what you want, rather than paying a hefty amount for multiple platforms every month? As it’s quite doubtful that one finishes binge-watching the ENTIRE library of two thousand movies and TV shows.
Whatever the reason for people cancelling their Disney+ subscription, it’s streamints job to guide streamers from all regions. We’re here to help, no matter the issue.
How to Cancel Disney Plus: FAQs
When it comes to cancelling your Disney Plus subscription, you may come across some concerns. Below we answer some of the most common questions:
If your account is on hold, you’ll just need to cancel the recurring billing on your subscription, and then you’ll be able to restart your subscription and update payment details. Your profile information will remain the same if you decide to resubscribe.
However, if your account was registered via a third party, like Apple, Google, or Verizon, you’ll need to cancel your Disney+ subscription through them. Please contact Disney+ customer support for more information.
You’ll need to get the email changed to your Disney+ account if it is not already registered. After that, you can process a cancellation of your subscription, and once it is about to expire, the new account holder will need to update the payment information.
From then on, the account will be under the new account holder’s billing information. However, if your email is registered with Disney+, the only way to transfer the account is by changing the payment information, which will be the only thing that will be changed
The rest of the information on your account will remain the same, including your profiles and watchlist. The best way to transfer your account to someone else is by changing the email address on the Disney+ account and then processing a cancellation on the subscription to update the new billing information.
If you cancel your Disney+ subscription at the start of the month after being billed, the refund will be processed, and it will take 3-5 business days for it to show up in your bank account. But, for third-party billers, the refund may take longer than 3-5 business days.
