What to Know About Canceling Your Free CuriosityStream Trial

  • You can cancel at any time by going to your Video Subscriptions in your account.
  • It is important to know that once you have been charged, canceling will not refund the transaction for the current billing period.
  • If you cancel, you will have access to CuriosityStream through the end of the billing period.

How to Avoid Automatic Subscription Renewal With the DoNotPay Virtual Credit Card

Many companies offer free trials, but require a credit card upfront, because they know that many consumers will forget to cancel the trial and become a paying customer by default.

DoNotPay can help you avoid charges altogether with a virtual credit card. When you request a virtual credit card through DoNotPay, this is what will happen:

  1. We will generate a random number and credit card info that you can use just like a standard credit card.
  2. It will allow you to subscribe to a free trial of CuriosityStream or any other service.
  3. When the free trial expires, you cannot be charged because the Free Trial Card does not actually have any money on it, and you should be automatically unsubscribed.

If you've already signed up and need help canceling CuriosityStream, DoNotPay can help with that too.
