‘Game of Thrones’ is over. Here’s how to cancel HBO Now—even though you shouldn’t.

We did it, everyone. We made it to the end of Game of Thrones after eight long years.

As is often the case with popular, long-running dramas, Sunday night’s series finale failed to satisfy everyone. Maybe you feel cheated, like you wasted almost a decade of your life only to get a disappointing ending. Or maybe you just don’t feel like paying $15 per month for HBO Now. 

Either way, cancelling your HBO Now subscription is easy. HBO even has a handy how-to guide on its website. How nice.  

First, log into HBO Now either in a web browser or in the app. Hit “Settings” in the menu and from there, go to “Billing Information.” If you don’t see that option, you might be in HBO Go, which means you subscribe to HBO through a cable or satellite service instead. 

From there, you need to know if you subscribe directly through HBO or through another service like Amazon, Hulu or Roku. If you get it through HBO, hit “Cancel Your Subscription” and turn off the “Auto-Renew” option. You’ll be able to stream through HBO Now until the date your subscription ends.

If you get it through another service, you’ll have to cancel through that service. HBO has a guide on how to do that, too. 

Before you do this, though, it’s worth asking: Should you actually cancel HBO? One network’s worth of content for $15 isn’t the best value, but Game of Thrones wasn’t the only thing HBO had going for it.

The new series Chernobyl just started and is apparently excellent, for example. Aside from that, The Righteous Gemstones sees national treasure John Goodman play a televangelist, and it premieres later this year.

Maybe you could catch up on Deadwood before the upcoming movie airs. The same goes for The Sopranos

Oh yeah, there’s also a decent rotation of movies available on the app, too. If you can justify the cost, there are still plenty of reasons to keep HBO Now around.
