Peacock TV is the streaming platform for all of your favorite NBC Universal TV shows and movies. If you aren’t getting your money’s worth, you can easily cancel your subscription and switch back to the company’s free plan. Here’s how.

Start by heading on over to Peacock’s desktop website. Unfortunately, you cannot change plans or cancel your subscription from the app for Android, iPhone, or iPad. From there, click the “Sign In” button found in the top-right corner of the page.
