    Hi
    Im not sure if this is the right place to put this but how the hell do you cancel a LoveFilm account? It says go on too your account and there should be a link saying "Cancel your account" but there isnt one! i've checked so many times and now im being charged for all these months when i dont even want the fucking subscription anymore!

    This is really pissing me off! any help would be much appreciated!

    My Account - then click 'Cancel my account'.

    It's third from bottom on the left hand side.

    Oh wait, when we cancelled we were already on the phone to them complaining that they were shit. So ignore me.

    No, you're right a-t; you can't do it online. You have to phone them and be ready to say upwards of 4 times that you want to leave because they'll basically not take NO for an answer.

    Unless they've changed something, that is. I cancelled a few months ago and whereas I used to be able to do it online this time their website said that cancellations had to be done over the phone. This is basically so they can spend 5 minutes of your time refusing to accept that you REALLY want to leave.

    There certainly used to be an easy cancellation link in the account pages somewhere. I guess they've removed it to make it harder for people to cancel on a whim.

    Hate to rez an old topic but I found it via google. If you're looking to cancel a LoveFilm account online, just wait till it's gone 10PM - then when you go the cancel account page, instead of giving you a phone number the cancel account form thing is there. :)

    Hope this helps someone!

    LOL, I hate talking on the phone to cancel something. At least this way people can avoid the "but if you stay with the service blahblah" ;p

    Lovefilm are ace these days, you can cancel online. I did 2 weeks ago with no problem.

    Actually, mine was Tesco via Lovefilm but surely it's the same? If not, bah.

    Anyhow 17 quid a month for unlimited games / films with 3 at a time is pretty good IMO.

    You can cancel online after about 11PM when the phone lines aren't open. It won't let you cancel online during the day though.

    I'm trying to cancel, they want me to call.

    Their online viewing is a joke. 66,000 films on dvd, 5,300 online, mostly shit.

    What a crock of shit. I had high hopes for it on my ps3.

    I signed up for this on PS3, used it once and completely forgot about it. Guess I'm paying for it now, I should probably go about cancelling it. Had I known it was such a pain to cancel, I'd never have signed up in the first place.

    I've watched a few things on their online system, but only stuff I had already put on my list, and only stuff out of that that's free to watch. The resolution on my PC is shitty (looks like only about 300 lines) but the framerate keeps up, so that's not too bad a bargain for many films.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Speaking of lovefilm online, does anyone know if quitting watching a film halfway through lets you keep the minutes you'd otherwise spend watching the rest of it?

    No Need to Cancel if you're going on Holiday!

    ... Guess I'm waiting until 10pm then. I don't want to talk to some sales person. I do that all day.

    Ok so I called up to cancel, and.. what the fuck?

    It's an Indian call centre and I couldn't really understand him, he kept going on about "because there's not much activity on your account, we can give you three months free(?) something something, will cost £5.99 (???) but will be cancelled something something"

    Now I have no fucking idea. My account now says I'm paying £5.99 per month. I want to be paying nothing per month, have I just been gypped or do I have to give three months notice?

    Out of interest; Can you still cancel online after 10/11pm? My trial runs out tomorrow and I am not paying £13.99.
    I also don't fancy ringing them.

    A Google search brought me back to Eurogamer so...

    Can anyone answer the above question? I rang them up a few months ago about something and they seem like idiots so cancelling online would be brilliant.

    You can cancel online still I believe...

    If you attempt to cancel during their working hours you get a prompt to call them but if you call them out of hours it just goes through online

    This certainly used to be the case anyway...
