How to Sign Up for a BritBox Free Trial The Risk-Free Way

Thanks to advances in high-speed internet and wireless technology, there's never been a more diversified choice of television and movie streaming services. From sci-fi to reality TV, there's something for everyone to watch on any device anywhere in the world.

For those that enjoy classic and new TV shows from the U.K., BritBox, created by the BBC and ITV networks, brings endless hours of binge-worthy programming. Interested viewers in the U.S. and Canada can get to sample their offerings before signing up for a paid subscription.

However, after your expires, the monthly paid subscription automatically kicks in. BritBox applies the subscription fee to the credit card you gave in the registration process.

Once you have passed the free trial deadline, it's often difficult to obtain a refund for the unwanted charges. However, in this guide, we'll show you how DoNotPay can help you get a risk-free by using a virtual credit card.

Why You Should Use DoNotPay to Register for a BritBox Free Trial

When you register an account with BritBox, you are unable to access the free trial period without including your credit card information. BritBox and other companies who use this strategy, profit off members by automatically charging them for the paid subscription, even if it is unwanted. To make matters worse, the companies' policies state that they will not refund the amount, despite your written request to do so.

To protect consumers from being charged for unwanted services, DoNotPay offers virtual credit cards that are not connected to any banks. They are simply temporary card numbers generated through an app provided by third-party vendors and even some mainstream card issuers.

By using virtual credit cards, you are protected from unwanted automatic charges that are often required by subscription companies to begin their free trials. Since virtual cards are essential "dummy" accounts, your free trial will end without the automatic renewal subscription fee. Only DoNotPay gives you a step-by-step guide on how to sign up and use virtual credit card numbers that prevent automatic account renewals.

How Can I Get Free Trial and Avoid Getting Charged on My Own?

It is easier to forget to cancel your free trial and end up paying for a subscription service you don't enjoy. Here are a few ways you can cancel a free trial and avoid getting charged:

Cancel payment once you sign up for the free trial.If you cancel a free trial after signing up, you will still use it for the entire trial period without getting charged. It is one of the best and easiest ways to ensure you don't get billed.

However, remember that not all free trials operate in the same manner. Some services will stop your trial immediately you unsubscribe, e.g., Hulu and Apple Music.

Set a reminder a few days before your trial period ends.Don't wait until your free trial ends to cancel your subscription. That's because you may take forever to find instructions on how to unsubscribe, and this could push you past your deadline.

Another reason why you shouldn't wait till the last minute is that most services will still charge you if you cancel less than 24 hrs before your free trial period ends.

Go virtual.If you signed up with a free virtual credit card and forgot to cancel your subscription before your trial period ended, you can never get charged.
