Canceling the free trial is quick and easy on pretty much any device. In this guide, I’ll walk you step-by-step through how to cancel your BET+ free trial subscription on the website, iPhone/iPad, Android, Amazon Prime Video, Roku, and more. I’ll also answer some common questions about the cancellation process so you can avoid accidentally getting billed. Sound good? Then let’s dive in!

Overview: How Does The BET+ Free Trial Work?

Before we get into how to cancel your subscription, here’s a quick refresher on how the BET+ free trial works:

  • BET+ offers a 7-day free trial for new subscribers
  • No payment info is required to sign up for the trial
  • You get full access to the entire BET+ catalog of shows, movies, comedy, etc.
  • The free trial automatically converts to a paid monthly subscription after 7 days
  • The monthly cost after the free trial ends is $9.99
  • To avoid being charged, you need to cancel before the 7 days are up

So in a nutshell, the free trial lets you test drive BET+ for a week risk-free. But if you don’t cancel by day 7, you’ll start getting billed monthly.

The good news is cancellation only takes a minute, and you can do it right from your device. Now let’s look at how to cancel based on where you signed up.

Step-By-Step Guide To Canceling The BET+ Free Trial

Canceling on the BET+ website

If you subscribed directly on, here‘s how to cancel:

  1. Go to the BET+ website and log into your account
  2. Click your profile icon in the top right and select “Account”
  3. Under “Plan & Billing,” click the “Cancel Subscription” button
  4. Confirm cancellation in the pop-up window

Once you cancel through the website, your subscription will instantly be disabled so you won‘t get charged after the trial ends. However, you‘ll still have full access to BET+ for the remainder of the 7-day free period.

Canceling through iPhone/iPad

Did you sign up on your iPhone or iPad? You can cancel right in your Settings:

  1. Open the Settings app and tap your name
  2. Choose “Subscriptions” under your Apple ID info
  3. Select your BET+ subscription and tap “Cancel Subscription”
  4. Confirm cancellation in the confirmation prompt

Following these steps will cancel your free trial and prevent any billing once the 7 days are over.

Canceling on Android

For Android users, here’s how to cancel your BET+ free trial in the Google Play Store:

  1. Open the Play Store app and tap the hamburger menu
  2. Choose “Subscriptions” under Account
  3. Tap on your BET+ subscription
  4. Select “Cancel subscription” and confirm

Like with iPhone, canceling through the Play Store means you won‘t be charged anything at the end of the free trial period.

Canceling through Amazon Prime Video

Did you sign up for the BET+ free trial through Amazon? Here’s how to cancel:

  1. Go to Amazon Prime and select “Manage Your Prime Video Channels”
  2. Find BET+ in your list of channel subscriptions
  3. Click “Cancel Channel” next to BET+
  4. Confirm cancellation in the pop-up window

Following these steps will instantly cancel your BET+ free trial through Amazon before you get converted to a paid subscription.

Canceling on Roku

For those who subscribed on a Roku device, here are the steps to take:

  1. From your Roku home screen, go to “Settings”
  2. Select “Account” then choose “Subscription” to see your list of paid channels
  3. Locate BET+ and select “Cancel Subscription”
  4. Confirm cancellation in the pop-up

This will stop your Roku subscription to BET+ before you ever get charged monthly after the free trial.

Canceling on other platforms

The cancellation process will be similar through any other platform where you can subscribe directly like Apple TV, Fire TV, Android TV, Chromecast, game consoles, etc. Just navigate to your account, find the BET+ subscription, and select “Cancel” or “Unsubscribe.”

No matter where you initially subscribed, the most important thing is that you cancel before day 7 to avoid getting billed $9.99 per month. As long as you cancel during the free trial period, you won‘t pay anything.

What Happens When You Cancel The Free Trial?

If you cancel the BET+ free trial during the 7-day period, here‘s what happens:

  • Your subscription immediately stops and disables
  • You won‘t be charged anything at all, not even a cent
  • You continue to have full access to BET+ until the trial ends
  • On day 8, you‘ll lose access to BET+ content and features
  • Your account is not deleted so you can resubscribe anytime

The cancellation takes effect right away but your access continues until the 7 days are up. At that point, you’ll be all set without ever paying since you cancelled during the free trial window.

What If I Forgot To Cancel and Got Charged?

Don’t panic if you forgot to cancel and just realized your card was billed $9.99 for your first month of BET+. Here’s what to do:

You can still cancel your subscription immediately to stop any future charges. However, you won‘t be able to get a refund for the first month you were accidentally charged.

To cancel the paid subscription, just follow the same steps above to turn off auto-renewal. Cancellation will take effect at the end of your current billing period.

If you want to request a refund, you’ll need to contact BET+ customer support directly and ask. They may make exceptions on a case-by-case basis.

Next time, set a reminder on your calendar a few days before the free trial ends as a heads up to cancel if needed. And you may want to use a virtual credit card when signing up, so you’re not out real money if you forget to cancel.

Questions and Answers About Canceling BET+

Here are answers to some common questions about canceling the BET+ free trial or paid subscription:

Can I get a refund if I cancel BET+ mid-month?

Unfortunately, no. There are no prorated refunds for partial subscription periods. You‘ll retain access until the end of your billing cycle but won‘t get any money back.

What if my free trial automatically renews by accident?

If your trial renews accidentally, you‘ll be charged for 1 month of BET+. You‘ll need to manually cancel to avoid being billed going forward. Contact support to ask for a refund of the accidental charge.

Can I cancel by calling BET+ customer service?

Yes, you can cancel over the phone by calling 888-607-5388. This can be helpful if you‘re having issues canceling through your device.

What if I signed up on a different device – can I still cancel?

You need to cancel on the same platform where you subscribed. So if you joined on the website, cancel on the website. If you subscribed on your Roku, cancel on your Roku.

What happens to my account when I cancel BET+?

Your account isn‘t deleted when you cancel, just deactivated. All your data remains so you can easily restart your subscription anytime without losing anything.

How much time do I have left after canceling the free trial?

You‘ll have full access to BET+ until the end of the 7-day free trial period. Cancellation just stops you from being charged when the trial ends.

By The Numbers: Key BET+ Subscription Stats

Before you decide whether to cancel or not, here are some key data points about BET+ subscriptions:

  • BET+ has over 1.3 million subscribers as of 2022
  • The service saw 25% subscriber growth from 2020 to 2021

For $9.99 per month, BET+ offers a robust library of premium content focused on the Black audience. It‘s seen steady growth since launching and keeps viewers engaged. Try out the free trial for yourself to see if the service is worth it for you before committing.

Should I Cancel My BET+ Free Trial?

So should you cancel your BET+ free trial or keep the subscription? Here are a few pros and cons to consider:

Pros of keeping BET+:

  • Huge on-demand library of Black movies, TV shows, comedy, etc.
  • Originals you can‘t watch anywhere else like First Wives Club
  • No ads – everything streams commercial-free
  • Download shows to watch offline
  • New releases added every month to keep it fresh

Cons of keeping BET+:

  • Niche focus on Black stories may not appeal to all
  • $9.99 monthly cost after the free trial
  • Missing some major hit shows and movies
  • Some technical issues on certain devices

If you love having unlimited access to content made for the Black audience, BET+ provides excellent value at just $10/month. But if you‘re looking for more general entertainment, a service like Netflix or Hulu may be a better choice.

My advice is to take the full 7 days to experience everything BET+ has to offer during the free trial. Get a feel for the library, try streaming on your devices, and decide if it‘s worth the monthly cost before that trial is up.

If BET+ turns out to meet your streaming needs, great! Just sit back and enjoy without doing anything else. But if you decide it‘s not for you, be sure to cancel your subscription before day 7 so you don‘t get charged. Either way, the free trial lets you test it out risk-free.

So in summary:

  1. Sign up for the 7-day free trial of BET+
  2. Check out their full catalog of shows, movies, and originals
  3. Decide if the content library is worth $9.99/month for you
  4. If yes, do nothing and enjoy BET+!
  5. If no, make sure to cancel before the 7th day to avoid billing

I hope this step-by-step guide clears up how to cancel the BET+ free trial across any device you use. Let me know if you have any other questions! I‘m happy to help make sure you don‘t get charged unintentionally.
