If you use the iPhone or iPad to watch Hulu, but didn’t sign up for the service on those devices, you can’t actually cancel your subscription directly through the iOS app. The easiest way to cancel your subscription is use your iPhone or iPad’s mobile browser and follow the steps to unsubscribe that we have demonstrated in the desktop browser method above.

If you did sign up for Hulu on your iPhone and iPad, the method is a bit more involved:

  1. Tap on the iPhone or iPad Settings app.
  2. Scroll and tap on the section where your name and Apple ID are shown.
  3. Tap on Subscriptions.
  4. You should see a list of all of your iOS subscriptions. Tap on Hulu from the list.
  5. Tap on the Cancel Subscription option and you should be done.
