BritBox, the joint streaming service from ITV and the BBC, makes it very easy to subscribe – and you even get a free trial for 30 days.

Once those 30 days are up, however, you will need to pay £5.99/month, and a lot of people are already asking me – how do I cancel my BritBox UK subscription?

While it might be a bit hidden, cancelling your BritBox account is pretty easy. Please note that the instructions here are related to the UK version of BritBox – the American version’s interface is a bit different.

Important Notes:

  • Make sure you cancel 24 hours before your bill is due – or you might get charged.
  • Once you cancel, your account will remain active until the last day of the current billing cycle (or until the free trial ends).
  • There’s also an option to “Delete my account” (instead of cancelling the subscription). Careful! If you delete the account, your subscription (or free trial) will end immediately
