Twitch subs are one of the best ways to support a creator on Twitch. Especially with a recurring Twitch subscription, the streamer can rely on that income every month until it is cancelled. However, we all know that sometimes bills are tight and we may need to cut back on our spending. If that’s the case you may have to cancel a subscription on Twitch to your favourite streamer.

In this article, we are going to cover how to unsubscribe from a Streamer on both desktop and mobile. Let’s jump in and get started.

How To Cancel A Twitch Subscription On Desktop

Unless specified, Twitch subscriptions are monthly charges. This means that until you cancel your subscription you will be getting billed every single month. If you subscribe to a lot of people you can start to lose track and end up having a lot of money coming out each month. Below is step by step on how to cancel a subscription from your Desktop.

  1. Open Twitch.tv and click on your profile picture in the top right-hand corner
  2. From the drop-down click on Subscriptions.
  1. You will now be in your subscription management tab, where you can view all of your active subscriptions.
  2. To cancel a subscription, click on the settings cog in the top right of the streamer you want to cancel.
  3. Click on don’t renew subscription
  1. A form will then pop up asking you why you are cancelling your Subscription. It doesn’t matter what you choose here. Pick an option and then click on the “Don’t renew subscription” at the bottom. If you don’t click this your subscription will not cancel.

Once you have clicked on the don’t renew subscription button you are finished. You will not be billed for a subscription to that streamer anymore. You will still get the benefits of being a subscriber until a full month runs out.

You will be able to see at the bottom of the form how long you have before your Twitch subscription runs out.

Do Twitch Subscriptions Re-bill Every Month?

Do Twitch subscriptions get charged every month? Yes, unless otherwise stated when subscribing your Twitch subscription will bill to you every month until you cancel your subscription.

Can You Refund A Twitch Subscription?

Generally when you subscribe to a streamer on Twitch it is final. They do not offer any refunds on subscriptions. They state this is their Terms of Sale. Their official wording states that:

“cancellations are not permitted after a purchase, and [that Twitch] do not offer any refunds or credits, including, without limitation, fees for Subscription Services.”

So, if you decide to subscribe to a channel it is final. Think twice before clicking that subscribe button.

The only circumstance where you may get refunded for a subscription is if a streamer gets banned on the platform.

Why Do People Unsubscribe On Twitch?

There are many reasons that a person may unsubscribe to your Twitch channel. Below are a few of the most popular.

1. They Can’t Afford It

Twitch subscriptions aren’t cheap. Think about all of the content you can get on Netflix for a similar price. Some people may be running tight on their budget this month and can’t afford to keep their subscription going.

2. They Aren’t Enjoying Your Content

Maybe the person isn’t enjoying your content as much they used to. If lot’s of people are un-subbing you should analyse your content and see what has changed over the past month. You find that you changed something people did not like. It could also be that you are streaming less and they don’t feel they are getting enough content for the money.

3. They Don’t Have Time

People get busy in life with work, school and hobbies. The person may unsubscribe as they don’t have as much time to watch Twitch as they used to. With lockdowns ending people are going out more and spending less time online.
