How to Cancel Amazon Subscription and Stop Auto-Renewal
Auto-renewal is a convenient feature and helps automatically clear your subscription bill on platforms like Amazon. But once you do not want to use the service on Amazon, it is better to cancel Amazon services or any other subscriptions before the auto-renewal happens. You might have subscribed to different services on Amazon, like Amazon Prime membership (including/excluding Prime Video) and STARZ Channel. Therefore, walk through the guide below to see how to cancel them all on Amazon.
Part 1. How to Cancel Amazon Channel Subscription

For example, you might subscribe to other channels in Prime like STARZ, Paramount+, etc (The examples here do not charge an early cancellation fee.)
Second, if you decide to cancel Amazon subscriptions, you will lose access to the benefits immediately. But for streaming services, you can choose to enjoy them till the subscription expires. In that case, you just cancel the auto-renewal.
