    I'm done it till March. Will sub for March then cancel again. This network has zero for me and Netflix has the older shows anyway.

    It's only two months, so, probably. I can't be bothered to manage twelve bucks over a sixty day period like that. Also I need to catch up on The Good Fight, so I'll get my money's worth that way. Also Colbert.

    I never received an email about it. The message popped before I could confirm my cancellation. Perhaps it matters where you did your cancellation.

    I was going through the CBS website on my PC.

    That's probably it. I cancelled mine via the app on my iPad.

    I've kept it but switched to commercials instead of ad-free.

    You should never cancel Netflix if you can afford it. Too much good stuff! We're talking CBSAA here, I think.

    I will cancel it after the 1st season is done and come back when the 2nd season starts. Whenever that is

    I am revising my opinion. I will see how prices will go up after net neutrality is ended. If it becomes more expensive to have the services offered, I will have to prioritize, on which service gives me the most bang for the buck, and cancel my subscription to the service which gives me the least bang for the buck. That would be CBS. They might have all the past series; however, they offer them at the worst quality resolution. The other offerings? Not interested. Twilight Zone was at its best in its original format in the 1950s. Each incarnation since has attempted to capture the essence, the magic, of the original and have fallen short.

    I just cancelled my subscription to CBSAA. I’ll pick it back up in late january or early February for a month, watch the final 6 episodes, and cancel again until season two, sometime in 2019.

    I decided to do the same thing. It was real easy to cancel, less than a minute once I logged into the site.

    Why not just keep renewing the free trial options?. I figure they operate much like HBO or Netflix were if you want to you can always get them for free as long as you don't get lazy and stay on top of it.

    I'm bored with the show and still haven't watched the last two episodes. Why waste time staying on top of something I have no real interest in?

    I don't think it lets you keep renewing the free trial. I heard that on the second try, it offers you a month at half off the normal price.

    In theory couldn't you get a husband/wife/sister/friend etc to sign up for a free trial and then access it from their account?. Also when their trials run out eventually the grace period for being able to do another one should run out and thus you keep the cycle going and going.

    The terms of service say that you can only share an account with people in your household. I don't see anything about setting up multiple accounts in the same household over time. But I get the feeling they might find some way to put the kibosh on that.

    Seems like a lot of work to save $6 a month.
