Let’s get started with the best method for most people – cancelling your SiriusXM subscription directly through their website.
Step-by-Step Guide to Cancelling SiriusXM through Their Website
Over 30 million subscriptions are directly managed through SiriusXM’s website . So if you’re unsure about where you initially signed up, going through the SiriusXM site directly is a safe bet. Here are the steps:
1. Navigate to SiriusXM’s homepage
Open any web browser and go to www.siriusxm.com. Make sure you’re logged into the website under the account used for your subscription. You can confirm you‘re logged in if you see your name in the top right corner:
Seeing your name here means you are in the right SiriusXM account to proceed with cancellation.
2. Access your account dashboard
Click on the profile icon next to your name and select Manage My Account from the drop-down menu:
This will lead you to your SiriusXM account dashboard with options like your plan, payment method, subscription status, and more.
3. Locate and select the cancellation option
On the left side of the dashboard under Manage Account, click on the option saying Cancel My Subscription:
This is the key part of the process that initiates cancellation.
4. Confirm cancellation
SiriusXM will likely show you some offers or deals to try and retain you as a subscriber. But if you are set on cancelling, continue through the screens prompting you to confirm cancellation.
SiriusXM may also try calling you to win you back, but you can decline these calls. After you fully confirm cancellation through the website, you will see a confirmation page and receive a cancellation email. At this point, your SiriusXM account is successfully closed!
And that’s all it takes to cancel your SiriusXM subscription directly through their website – just a few quick clicks.
Below are a few additional details on the SiriusXM cancellation process to be aware of:
- Cancellation is effective immediately – your access will terminate as soon as you cancel.
- You can easily reactivate your account later if you change your mind.
- You may be offered discounts like $5/month for 12 months to retain you. Up to you if you want to take advantage.
- No cancellation fees apply for monthly plans, but longer 6/12 month pre-paid plans may have fees.
Using SiriusXM‘s own website is by far the easiest way to cancel for most people. But if you didn‘t sign up through their site directly, keep reading for how to cancel through Apple, Google, and Roku.

This screen shows all your active Apple subscriptions.
3. Identify the SiriusXM subscription

After confirming cancellation, your SiriusXM subscription through Apple is cancelled!

This takes you to the Google Play menu.

On the subscriptions page, tap on the SiriusXM subscription listing to manage it.
If you don‘t see it, you likely signed up elsewhere or on a different Google account.

The last platform we‘ll look at is how to cancel SiriusXM on a Roku device.
Step-by-Step Instructions for Cancelling SiriusXM on Roku
If you subscribed to SiriusXM directly on your Roku player, use these steps to cancel:
1. Visit Roku‘s website
Open any web browser and go to www.roku.com. Make sure to log into your Roku account if you aren‘t already.

Some final useful notes on cancelling SiriusXM through Roku:
- Login to your Roku account on a browser, not the device, to manage your subscription.
- You can reactivate the subscription later by turning auto-renewal back on.
- Cancellation stops future billing but does not issue refunds for unused time.
And that concludes the main methods for cancelling a SiriusXM subscription! Let‘s briefly summarize the key takeaways:
- Cancelling directly through SiriusXM‘s website is the best option for most people
- Use iPhone Settings or the App Store to cancel if you subscribed through Apple
- Android users can cancel via the Google Play Store app
- Roku subscribers should turn off auto-renewal on the Roku website
- Cancellation takes effect immediately with all platforms
No matter how you originally signed up, cancelling your SiriusXM subscription is quick and straightforward. Just follow our simple step-by-step instructions outlined above.
Now let‘s discuss the difference between fully cancelling and simply turning off auto-renewal.
Key Difference: Cancelling Subscription vs Ending Auto-Renewal
When navigating the cancellation process, you may see options to simply disable auto-renewal, rather than fully cancelling your SiriusXM subscription immediately. Here is the key difference between these two approaches:
- Turn Off Auto-Renewal – Stops your subscription from automatically renewing at the next billing cycle. You retain access until your paid term expires.
- Cancel Subscription – Fully and immediately cancels your subscription. You lose access to SiriusXM right away.
Many people choose to turn off auto-renewal when they are undecided about cancelling. This table outlines the differences:
|Action||Turn Off Auto-Renewal||Cancel Subscription|
|Access||Keep access until billing term expires||Lose access immediately|
|Billing||No future charges||No future charges|
|Reactivating||Can easily resubscribe online||Need to setup a new account|
|Account Status||Paused||Closed entirely|
Turning off auto-renewal keeps your options open if you later change your mind about SiriusXM. But fully cancelling immediately closes the account. Choose the option that best aligns with your needs.
We hope this guide provided you with everything needed to successfully cancel your SiriusXM subscription. Just follow our step-by-step instructions for a smooth cancellation process. And consider simply pausing auto-renewal if you may want the flexibility to reactivate SiriusXM later on. Happy unsubscribing!
