How To Cancel Your Xbox Subscription – Step By Step
The cancellation of the Xbox subscription can be an easy process if you follow all the guidelines and follow the terms and conditions as prescribed by Microsoft. Let us have a look at the procedure for cancelling the Xbox subscription.
The subscription to Xbox cannot be cancelled if you have outstanding dues or pending payment on your subscription charges. If your pending payment is clear and you have no dues left then you can cancel the subscription in either one of the two ways: immediate cancellation or cancellation just before the next auto-renewal of the subscription. If you go with immediate cancellation all the Xbox services will be stopped immediately however if you cancel the auto-renewal service you will get all the services until the subscription period ends. The second option is better as you get to enjoy all the services and benefits until the end of the subscription period.
