If you have subscribed to Hulu, you have the option of customizing, upgrading, and downgrading your subscription. There are several plans and add-ons that you may add based on your needs.

If you realize that your Hulu subscription is no longer important to you, you may cancel it. If you have something other than the basic plan, you can downgrade to a cheaper option. You may get rid of Hulu Live and use the on-demand-only plan.

If you only want to get rid of your subscription for a short time, you may pause it for up to 12 weeks. You won't need to pay for the account during that period. When you pause your subscription, the cancellation will be effective from the first day of your next billing cycle. Follow these steps to pause your subscription;

1. Navigate to the 'Account' page

2. Find the section 'Your Subscription'

3. Click on the option 'Pause' next to 'Pause your Subscription'

4. Set the duration you wish to pause your account

5. Click on the option 'Submit'

Once the duration is over, your credit card will be charged every month. The date your account is reactivated will be your new billing date. You do not need to pay anything if you cancel your account while it is paused. You can reactivate your account whenever you want.
