Starz is a premium channel that is owned by Lions Gate Entertainment. This is the ultimate network for people who seek quality entertainment. After all, this is the channel where you will get to enjoy all the theatrically released films. But movies aren’t the only thing you will watch on this channel as it also broadcasts original television series. Starz is provided as an add-on by all the major cable TV providers. And although the network offers a lot of great content, people may want to unsubscribe from Starz. Their reason for wanting so can be different. For instance, they might not want to pay extra for this network, or they simply didn’t find the content entertaining enough. If you are someone who wants to get rid of this channel, read on!

What You Need to Know About Starz

As stated above, Starz is a premium channel that can be added to your existing plan for a cost that may vary depending on the provider you are subscribed to. For instance, if you got Starz on Optimum, you would be paying around $10/month. Do keep in mind that this price is tentative. But did you know that this channel offers a free trial? So, before you actually subscribe to this channel, opt for the trial and see if you like what it has to offer. If not, you would never have to unsubscribe from Starz.

Although the channel offers a trial period of 30 days, however, if you are getting it through Amazon, you will get seven additional days to try the service. But once the trial period is about to expire, you can easily cancel the subscription. And guess what? There will be no cancellation fees or penalties. What’s more? If you end up subscribing to the service but want to opt out after one month, you will get a full refund.

3. Call the Provider

This is perhaps one of the simplest ways to cancel your Starz subscription. All you have to do is call the provider and ask them to unsubscribe you from the service. You can also ask them about any other information if you want, like inquiring details about your Cox bill pay.

The beauty of this method is that it will work no matter which cable provider you are subscribed to. For instance, if you have Starz on Charter Spectrum, you can simply get in touch with their customer support and request them to cancel your subscription.

4. Send An Email

You can even cancel your Starz subscription by emailing your provider. But for that, you will need to have their email address. You can find this information on their contact us page. So, head over to their website, take the details, and send an email, requesting the provider to unsubscribe from the channel.

5. Fire TV

If you chose not to have Starz on DIRECTV or any other cable provider and selected Fire TV instead, you can still cancel the subscription easily. However, there are a few steps that you will need to follow. And here they are:

  • Head over to your Amazon Store Subscriptions.
  • You will find the option of Actions next to your Starz Subscription. Select that.
  • Select Turn Off Auto-Renewal.
  • Hit Confirm.

However, it’s important to note that people have different tastes. And not everyone tends to like the same thing. Hence, if you don’t find this network entertaining enough, you can unsubscribe from Starz by following one of the aforementioned ways.
