How to cancel HBO Now after Game of Thrones is over

If you need to cancel your HBO Now subscription for whatever reason, it's easy to do. There's no contract, so there aren't any early termination fees, and since you pay for the service a month in advance, there is no balance to pay. Best of all, you can sign up again at any time.

The steps below only work if you signed up for HBO Now through your iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple TV using your Apple ID and iTunes account. If you signed up for the service in any other way (like from the HBO Now website), you'll have to cancel your subscription there.
