WOWOW On Demand is a video distribution service that offers a wide variety of contents including video and music, but not a few people may find the cancellation procedure troublesome.
Certainly, the cancellation procedure differs depending on the type of contract, and is somewhat more time-consuming than for other delivery services.
Therefore, this article explains how to cancel WOWOW On Demand and points to keep in mind.
In addition, it even introduces some useful tricks for cancelling WOWOW On Demand.
First, we will tell you about three precautions you need to know before canceling WOWOW On Demand.
WOWOW is a month-to-month contract and is not prorated.
With the exception of the free trial period, you can watch programs until 24:00 on the last day of the month, regardless of whether you cancel at the beginning, middle or end of the month.
For example, whether you first signed up on the 1st or 15th of the month, you can watch until the 31st of that month.
However, the free trial period is structured in such a way that you will not be able to watch the program from the day after you cancel the subscription.
If you subscribe to WOWOW via broadcasting, you can use the first month for free, but instead, you cannot cancel within the period or immediately after the end of the trial period. This means that you will be charged for at least one month.
For example, if you register on April 1 and cancel on April 17, the earliest you can cancel is the 31st of the following month.
If you are considering signing up via broadcast, you may want to consider this carefully.
If you complete the cancellation procedure within the free trial period, the service will end on the date of acceptance and you will no longer be able to view the corresponding video content. Some video distribution services can be viewed until the end of the period, which is not the case with WOWOW, so it is more advantageous to complete the cancellation procedure just before the end of the period.
