How to cancel your Quibi subscription

When Quibi was first unveiled, everyone had high expectations for the video platform. The goal was to launch content with episodes that were only several minutes long for easy consumption, starring familiar faces like LeBron James and Sophie Turner. The library would include everything from documentaries to fictional shows to comedy skits, and in the age of TikTok and commuting, it seemed like a plausible idea.

As it turns out, Quibi hasn’t been particularly successful at holding long-term interest. Current estimates put the app at getting 2 million paying customers by the end of 2020, which is around 30% of its first-year target. Quibi founder Jeffrey Katzenberg even went so far as to blame coronavirus, though the other shortcomings — notably lackluster programming and poor marketing — have likely been a factor.

So, if you’re one of those who prefer to drop Quibi — or at least wait until it shows up on your TV —  you may be wondering how to officially end your subscription. Thankfully, we’ve got you covered.

Step 5: You’ll now be taken to the subscription section of your app management software, which looks a bit different depending on your operating system. Regardless, look for an option to select the Quibi app from your list.

Step 6: Finally, select Cancel Subscription at the bottom and confirm your cancellation.

How to cancel Quibi via iOS

If you prefer to cancel Quibi without launching the app, you have other options. If you’re on an iPhone, just head to the Settings menu and tap your name at the top of the resulting page.

Next, select the Subscriptions option and peruse your current subscriptions through Apple. If you don’t see Subscriptions, then you aren’t signed in, so select iTunes and Apple Store instead, and sign in using your Apple ID information. Afterward, select Quibi, followed by Cancel Subscription. Confirm the cancellation, enter your Apple ID password once more if necessary, and you’re done.

How to cancel Quibi via the Google Play Store

If you’re on Android, you can also cancel Quibi through the Google Play Store. First, make sure you are signed in to the correct Google Account (i.e., whichever account you use for your phone and Quibi).

Next, open up the Google Play Store, tap the icon with the three lines, and go to Subscriptions. Select the Quibi app, tap Cancel subscription, and verify your decision to remove your subscription.

What is Apple TV+? Pricing, features, how to get it, and more
The Apple TV+ home screen with an image from Invasion.

Since its launch in November of 2019, Apple TV+ has elbowed its way on to the playing field of streaming services from Netflix and Amazon Prime Video to Disney+, Max, Hulu, and a plethora of others to become, for many, a go-to option for movies, TV series, and sports. Since then the ad-free service has amassed an estimated 25 million subscribers globally, with many more than that reportedly cashing in on the company's penchant for free promotional subscriptions after you buy a new Apple device like an iPhone or MacBook.

What sets Apple TV+ apart from the rest of the herd is that it's the only service that offers exclusively original content and only its own original content; meaning no seasons of Rick and Morty or Friends licensed from their respective networks and no blockbuster flicks from other studios, but you can get those elsewhere. This may or may not be a bad thing, as so far Apple has done a pretty good job at making some of the most compelling original content out there, including award-winning series such as Ted Lasso, The Morning Show, and Severance to some of the best sci-fi series around, like Silo and Invasion, as well as live sports from Major League Baseball and Major League Soccer.

How I Met Your Father season 2’s ending, explained
Valentina and Sophie looking at the phone, screaming in a scene from How I Met Your Father.

When How I Met Your Father season 2, part 1 ended, Sophie (Hilary Duff) met Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris), who reprised his role from How I Met Your Mother. Their candid conversation led her to come to a huge decision: she wanted to find her biological father. This was resolved quickly in the first episode of the second half of season 2 when she tracked him down as a man named Nick (Clark Gregg).

The story continued to divert from there because, like the adult Ted (Josh Radnor) in How I Met Your Mother, the adult Sophie (Kim Cattrall) continuously went off topic through her story. But the wild ride is all part of the show’s charm.

How to watch TruTV from anywhere in the world for free
Mercedes-Benz Stadium Renders

College basketball fans are rejoicing because they can get their annual playoffs fix when they watch March Madness from now through the NCAA Championship game on April 3, 2023. In order to see all the games live for free when you watch NCAA basketball you need to access the TruTV live stream. TruTV doesn't have all the games - they're split between TBS, TNT, ESPN, CBS, and TruTV. The other channels are generally available on smart TVs or over the air with a digital antenna, but TruTV is not as common. TruTV isn't just for NCAA basketball; the streaming channel also features movies, shows, and original programming. If you subscribe to a conventional TV services provider such as AT&T, Optimum, Spectrum, Verizon, Xfinity, Dish, DirecTV, or Cox, you can watch TruTV to catch the action. If you cut the cord from cable or satellite TV services, you're still in luck because TruTV is included with several primary streaming services.
Watch TruTV on Sling TV

Sling TV includes TruTV with a Sling Blue $40 monthly subscription. In addition to a 30-channel TV line-up, Sling TV plans include 50 hours of digital video recording (DVR) with Cloud DVR. Sling Blue also allows three simultaneous device streams for channels available only on Sling Blue, which includes TruTV. So you can record a TruTV live stream NCAA game for later viewing if you can't watch it in real time. You can access Sling TV with most smart TVs, iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, Mac and Windows computers, and Xbox game consoles.
