Sling TV is a unique streaming service that offers subscribers the classic cable channels, without the cable price tag.
As well as streaming your favorite channels like BBC America or Comedy central, you can also record live TV to watch back later with family and friends. Despite all of this, you may wish to opt for a slightly cheaper streaming service with Netflix or Hulu.
So, if you have a Sling TV subscription but later wish to cancel or pause your membership, you’ve come to the right place.
Here’s how to get it done:

Sign into your Sling TV account.Click the gear icon, located in the top-right corner of the screen.Click Manage Account. This will open a new tab.
Choose Cancel Subscription.
Select your reason for canceling, then choose Continue.Click Cancel My Subscription.
How long can I watch after I cancel my Sling TV subscription?
Once you cancel, your subscription will run through until the end of your current billing cycle. So, if you’re usually charged on the 5th of the month and you cancel on the 25th, you’d have access to your subscription through to the 4th of the following month.
However, if you’re canceling during a free trial, you’d lose access to those premium options immediately.
