Streaming services canceled in July 2022

Viewers are ready to digest stranger things 4 part 2 on Netflix, making the service a July staple. There’s still time before Dragon House is available to watch on HBO Max, but does that mean you have to cancel it for now? Each month you may need to weigh whether to cancel a streaming service due to the content currently available and the price you pay for each service. In these tough financial timesI would like to propose a strategy: Churn like ice cream.

What does that mean? Subscribe, cancel, ride with a different service, then resubscribe, keeping your favorites in a rotation. The advantage is that you save money when Netflix, Disney+, HBO Max and others don’t have the content you want to watch at any given time. Remember to turn off auto-renewal of your monthly subscriptions. Churning might not be an option if you’re sharing your accounts with people outside your household, but if you can work out a deal with your streaming partners, go for it.

To give you a head start this summer, here are my recommendations on which streamers to keep or cancel for the month of July, based on new TV shows and movies (I haven’t considered sports and live tv streaming services). Sure, your tastes may be different, but if nothing else, I urge you to at least consider the concept of churning to save. It’s easier than you think.

Additionally, five new video games arrived on the platform in July.

Disney+: With Ms. Marvel wrapping up its first season on July 13, it’s a good time to binge on the show. The same goes for Season 1 of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Baymax!, which released all six episodes on June 29.

Hulu: Hulu is on the bubble for July, so it’s up to you if you want to stop it. You can watch Only Murders in the Building season 2 throughout the month and into August, or wait until next month to binge. Other releases landing in July include The Princess (July 1), The Bachelorette season 19 premiere (July 12), What We Do in The Shadows season 4 (July 13), Grown-ish season 5 (July 21) and The Bob’s Burgers Movie (also on HBO Max July 12).

Starz: Register for Starz for $3 a month for six months if you are a new customer or a former customer. P-Valley has 10 episodes in Season 2, with the majority airing in July. Viewers can complete Becoming Elizabeth season 1, and Spider-Man: No Coming Home finally landed on July 15.

First video: If you already benefit from this service via your Prime subscription, you might as well keep it. The boys airs its Season 3 finale on July 8. Chris Pratt’s new movie, The Terminal List, comes out July 1 and House of Gucci begins streaming July 2. First video subscription? You can cancel if you don’t like The Boys.

Put those streamers on hold for July

HBO Max: HBO Max has some notable drops in July, but waiting until August to watch everything works well too. The Bob’s Burgers movie hits the platform on July 12, but it costs less to stream on Hulu. Issa Rae’s new show Rap Sh!t debuts on July 21. Harley Quinn – which includes a guest appearance from James Gunn this season – returns with Season 3 on July 28. Pretty Little Liars’ new spinoff, Original Sin, also premieres July 28. With so many releases in late July, you can wait until next month or September to hit HBO Max for a binge session.

Harley Quinn fans can wait until August to start streaming all 10 new episodes of Season 3.


Apple TV Plus: No Ted Lasso. You can also wait until August to binge on every episode of For All Mankind, as season 3 ends on August 12.

Peacock: If you’re not ready to watch Love Island USA (July 19), The Bad Guys (July 1), all the John Wick movies, or the Tour de France, we suggest cancel Peacock or at least downgrade to a free account for July.

Paramount Plus: Unless you’re a big brother or South Park fan, you can leave Paramount More on your July list. Big Brother Season 24 lands on July 6, while South Park: The Streaming Wars Part 2 arrives on July 13. Star Trek: Strange New Worlds ends its 10-episode run for its first season on July 7.

Save more money while waiting for things to come out

If you’re not someone who gets FOMO on a regular basis, a smart method is to wait until most or all of your favorite series’ episodes land on a platform. This way, rather than paying for a service for two or three months to cover 6-10 weeks of a show, you can catch up on everything by subscribing for a month. And then repeat the cycle again.

As an example, there are 10 episodes of Harley Quinn this season on HBO Max. The finale airs in September, so all episodes will be available to stream at that time. Although it airs on July 28 and runs through August, why pay for both months when you can expect to watch it in full anytime in September?

Think about how much you pay per month for each streaming service you have and do the math. Netflix costs $10 to $20, Disney Plus costs between $3 and $8 depending on the plans, HBO Max costs $10 or $15, Hulu starts at $7, and Starz costs $9. The others have a base rate of $5 per month. If you decide to unsubscribe, set yourself a calendar reminder to ping you when it’s time to resubscribe or cancel. We’ll see you in August for another streaming breakdown.
