What if I Cancel Sling TV Early?
Since Sling TV is a non-contract service, you can stop Sling TV at any time. However, you pay for each month in advance – so what happens if you pay for a month on March 1st, and end up cancelling Sling TV on March 15th?
All Sling TV subscription changes take place on your renewal date. Your renewal date is the date when you’ll be charged again for another month (which would be April 1st, in this example). So, if you cancel mid-month, you will still be able to use Sling TV until your renewal date, and you just won’t be charged again.
The only exception to this is during Sling TV’s free 7 day trial. If you sign up for the trial and cancel on day 1, your membership will expire immediately. But if you’re a paid member, you’ll be able to continue using the service until your renewal date.
