About individual channel subscriptions in the Apple News app

To read premium stories, you can subscribe to a publisher's channel in Apple News. If you already have a paid subscription, you can access it in the News app. And if you no longer want a subscription, you can cancel it.

The News app and access to subscriptions inside the app are available only in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom. Learn more about Apple News.

You can view, change, or cancel your subscriptions in Settings on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, or in the App Store on your Mac. This includes subscriptions purchased inside the News app or any publisher's app. Learn more about how to cancel your subscription.
