PlayStation Now is a new sensation for PS lovers. The advanced online gaming system allows users to access over 400 games at affordable costs. The service provides total relief to game lovers who own PS4, PS3, and PS2 consoles.
PS Now is available either via subscription or rental basis. Users can choose from monthly, three-month, and annual subscription options. They may also decide not to play anymore and will need to cancel their accounts before the next renewal period. If you had subscribed on trial, you may also choose to cancel PS Now before the trial ends if you do not wish to get billed.
If you wish to cancel your subscription for whatever reason, there are different ways to do so:

Will I get a refund after canceling PS Now?
Once you purchase the PS Now subscription from the PlayStation Store, you may get a refund if you change your mind about the service. You often have 14 days after getting billed to request a refund. However, the refund amount may get slashed depending on whether you played games online, downloaded them, or used cloud storage.
If you are a new user, the free trial days will also be added to the 14-day period. After the 14 days, you will not receive a refund for any payments made even if you had chosen a three-month or one-year subscription.
PlayStation Now is available for use as a free trial for seven days. Once you start using the service auto-renewal gets activated automatically. If you do not wish to continue using the service after the seven days, you will need to cancel PS Now free trial using any of the above methods.
