NBC’s streaming service Peacock TV is home to a vast library of movies and TV shows and a host of live content. If you subscribed and decided the paid plans aren’t for you, this guide explains how to cancel Peacock Premium or Peacock Premium Plus.  

Key Takeaways:

  • If you subscribed to a Peacock premium plan via Peacock’s website, you can cancel or downgrade your subscription in your account settings. If you signed up via a third-party service or device like Roku, the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store, you will need to cancel your Peacock subscription via that service. 
  • If you cancel or downgrade a Peacock premium plan, you can still access Peacock’s free plan, which has a library of movies and TV series. 
  • To permanently delete your Peacock account and information linked to it, you will need to contact NBC. 

Peacock’s paid plans are Peacock Premium, which gives you access to more than 80,000 hours of content, and Peacock Premium Plus, which lets you watch content ad-free and download titles to watch offline. 

The good news is that even if you cancel your Peacock Premium subscription, you can still get plenty of content without spending a dime with Peacock’s free plan. If this sounds good to you, let’s dive into how to cancel or downgrade your Peacock Premium plan. 

How to Cancel Peacock Online: Cancel, Downgrade or Upgrade

Fortunately, the Peacock cancelation process is quick and easy. Follow the steps below to cancel your Peacock TV subscription online. If you’re traveling outside the U.S., you’ll need to connect to a U.S. server on a VPN to access your Peacock account. We recommend ExpressVPN, which is the best VPN for Peacock.

Please bear in mind that if you cancel your Peacock Premium plan, you cannot get a refund for payments you have already made. You will still be able to access the service until the end of your current billing period, but your plan won’t be renewed. 

To find out more about how Peacock bills you, check your payment method in “plans and payment.” 

  1. Turn on Your VPN (Outside U.S. Only)

    If you’re outside the U.S., don’t forget to connect to a U.S. server on a VPN to access your Peacock account.

How to Cancel Peacock on Roku & Other Third-Party Devices

Like with the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, if you signed up for your Peacock account via a third-party service, another website or on a streaming device, you will need to cancel in the same place, not on the Peacock website. 

For example, if you subscribed to Peacock on Roku, you can cancel your subscription on your Roku streaming device or the Roku website. The steps for Roku’s website are: 

  1. Go to and sign in 
  2. Go to “manage your subscriptions”
  3. Find Peacock in the channels list
  4. Select “unsubscribe” 

Can I Get a Peacock Refund?

If you cancel your Peacock subscription, you will no longer be charged once your current billing cycle ends. Unfortunately, Peacock will not refund you for payments you have already made. According to Peacock’s refund policy, it does not typically offer refunds. If it does, it’s at the service’s discretion. 

Can I Resubscribe to Peacock?

Yes. If you kept the free version of Peacock, you can go to “plans and payment” in your account and upgrade to a paid subscription. If you deleted your Peacock account, you’ll need to set up a new account to resubscribe. 

How to Completely Delete Your Peacock Account

You cannot delete your Peacock account via your account settings. To request deletion, you have to contact Peacock’s parent company, NBC. Follow these steps to contact NBC. 

  1. Go to NBC’s Privacy Policy

    Navigate to NBC’s privacy policy on the NBC website.
