How to Cancel Showtime on Amazon

So you signed up to add Showtime to your Amazon Prime Video account. You wanted to watch hit originals like Billions and Dexter, movies like The Godfather trilogy, live sports and more…without committing to a lengthy cable contract.

But now you’re looking to remove Showtime from your Prime subscription to save some money each month. Well friend, you’ve come to the right place!

Canceling Showtime on Amazon is quick and painless when you follow this guide. I’ll provide insider tips to walk you through the process, explain what happens after cancellation, assist with account management, and answer common questions. Time to take control of your Prime membership!

What Exactly is Showtime on Amazon Prime Video?

First, some background. Showtime has been a major cable TV network since the 1970s, known for dramas, comedies, documentaries, and sports programming. Originals like Ray Donovan, Shameless and The Chi draw loyal fans. And the network offers hundreds of hit movies like Inheritance, Joker, and classics from the Paramount library.

Traditionally Showtime came with expensive cable bundles costing $100+ per month. But today you can add Showtime directly to an Amazon Prime Video membership. This allows you to watch live streams and on-demand Showtime content without a cable or satellite subscription.

Prime members get a free 30-day trial of Showtime. After the trial it‘s $10.99 per month – often much cheaper than paying for cable.

With Showtime through Prime Video, you can download shows to mobile devices and watch offline when traveling. Plus stream on popular platforms like Fire TV, Roku and Apple TV.

Now let‘s get to cancelling!

How to Cancel Showtime on the Amazon Website vs. Mobile App

You have two straightforward options to remove Showtime from your Amazon account, depending on whether you prefer using a web browser or mobile app.

I‘ll walk through both processes step-by-step next, but first here‘s a quick comparison:

Mobile app6 taps + confirm

As you can see, there are very few clicks or taps involved either way. But you may find the website slightly faster, while the app is ultimately more convenient if you manage your Prime account daily from your phone and Fire tablet.

After Cancellation: What Happens to Your Account

So Showtime is cancelled from your Prime Video account. What next? Here‘s an overview of what you can expect:

  • Remaining access: You‘ll have full Showtime streaming access until your current billing date passes. So you might as well keep enjoying some movies and shows!

  • No more charges: On your next billing date, Amazon will automatically stop charging you the $10.99 monthly Showtime subscription fee. So your credit card will see some relief.

  • Prime membership unchanged: You keep the same Amazon Prime membership and perks as before, unchanged. Streaming movies, TV shows, Music, reading Kindle books, and free shipping will continue uninterrupted! Prime Video just loses the Showtime premium channel specifically.

  • Saved shows accessible if resubscribed: Your Showtime viewing history and saved shows will still be available in Prime Video if you resubscribe to Showtime in the future after a cancellation. So don‘t worry about losing your Dexter episodes!

  • Can add Showtime back anytime: You‘re able to re-add Showtime with another 30-day preview anytime. It will be a fresh subscription if you resubscribe after cancelling for a period of time.

I know it can be frustrating to manage channel add-ons across various streaming services. So I hope clearly laying out what happens after a Showtime cancellation provides some relief!

Tips for Managing Other Amazon Prime Subscriptions

Now that you‘ve cancelled Showtime, it‘s a great opportunity to evaluate all the other subscriptions and memberships associated with your Amazon account.

You may uncover some dormant add-ons still being paid for!

Here are some popular services to review in Your Memberships and Subscriptions:

  • Prime Video Channels – HBO Max, Paramount+, AMC+, Starz and more
  • Amazon Music Unlimited – ad-free music
  • Audible – audiobook membership
  • Kindle Unlimited – eBook and magazine subscription
  • Amazon Fresh – grocery delivery
  • Haystack TV – free streaming TV news

Plus many others!

I recommend browsing the full list of memberships and compare it to services you use regularly.

Cancel anything forgotten that‘s still being paid for monthly. And take advantage of free trials if you want to revisit services later.

This subscription management is also helpful to see what Amazon Prime related services you might be missing out on!

For example, Haystack TV is a free streaming channel to watch news from over 200 local broadcast stations. Definitely worth checking out.

FAQs: Common Showtime Cancelation Questions

Here I‘ll tackle a few frequently asked questions about cancelling Showtime through Amazon Prime Video:

How much does Showtime cost on Amazon Prime?

The regular cost is $10.99 per month after a 30 day free trial.

Can I get a Showtime refund from Amazon?

Yes, you can request a full refund of charges if you cancel Showtime during the free trial before paid billing starts.

Unfortunately if you cancel after becoming a paying subscriber, you won‘t receive a refund but will keep Showtime access until your current billing date passes.

What‘s the cheapest way to get Showtime?

Adding Showtime to an existing Amazon Prime membership generally offers the lowest regular price at $10.99 per month. It beats paying for cable.

However, other streaming providers sometimes offer Showtime bundles or free trials bringing the very short term cost lower than Amazon. For example, right now DIRECTV STREAM has Showtime included free for the first 3 months after signing up. These limited deals come and go.

But Prime Video always offers the most stable Showtime pricing long-term, plus integration with Amazon billing and devices.

Does Showtime have ads and commercials?

No, Showtime offers an ad-free viewing experience so subscribers don‘t see commercials. This allows for uninterrupted movies and original series. Pretty nice perk for only $11 a month!

What devices allow Showtime on Amazon?

Fortunately, Showtime through Amazon has very wide device support. You can stream using iOS and Android mobile devices, all Fire TV products (stick, cube etc.), plus Apple TV 4th gen, Roku, Chromecast, popular game consoles, and any web browser on your computer.

I hope this guide served you well on the journey to cancel Showtime through Amazon, my friend!
