Why do people cancel their Shudder subscription?

First launched in 2015, Shudder was one of the first on-demand streaming platforms dedicated to providing its subscribers with the widest range of horror-based movies and TV shows. Being owned and operated by AMC gave them a strong advantage over their competitors to secure to rights to more productions.

The horror-genre has a sort of cult like following, meaning many original creations are well received among its fans. It also helps that AMC is able to partner with some of the big players in the industry, boosting their reputation as well. Despite all that, sometimes subscribers eventually get sick of getting scared, so they decide to cancel and move on to another service.

One of the main reasons people cancel Shudder is just that, they are bored or the horror and thriller genre. While there are plenty of wildly different horror movies out there, there are many more that follow the same old storyline and format, leading to a not to scary viewing experience if you already know what’s going to happen. This is also why so many people have decided to cancel their Peacock subscription.

Another common reason people say they decided to cancel is that it was simply taking longer and longer to find something they’d want to watch. While the horror genre is quite diverse, it doesn’t go on forever, and subscribers and definitely watch more movies faster than studios are pumping out. And if you’ve gone through the full content library available on Shudder, there’s no point in still paying for a subscription if you’re literally unable to use it. This is also why so many people have decided to head online to figure out how to cancel AMC’s other streaming service, AMC Plus.
