What is the best time to cancel your PlayStation Subscription?
PlayStation offers monthly, three months, and a year subscription. You need to cancel your subscription at least 24 hours before the next renewal date. If you miss it, you end up paying the subscription money for the next cycle.
For instance, if you are in a yearly subscription that ends on 02/01/2020, you need to cancel your subscription before 01/01/2020. If you can’t cancel before 01/01/2020, you end up paying the subscription for the next year too.
These are the ways that you can use to cancel your PlayStation subscription. If you are a PlayStation Vue subscriber, cancel the streaming subscription without any delay as it is the first PlayStation service that is going to be terminated soon.
