How to use the Finder app to cut your streaming costs
Why pay for stuff you're not actually watching?
We’re reader-supported and may be paid when you visit links to partner sites. We don’t compare all products in the market, but we’re working on it!
It's a common problem with streaming. You sign up for the free trial, forget to cancel and then end up paying $10 a month for a service you never use.
That might not seem like much, but repeat it with half-a-dozen providers and it's a lot of money down the drain.
Happily, there's a simple solve. Use the Finder app to keep track of the services you're already paying for, without needing to pore through your credit card statements.
How to check your streaming bills
- If you haven't already got the Finder app, install it and connect your bank accounts and credit cards.
- The app will analyse your transaction activity. (This can take a few minutes after connecting your account the first time.)
- To see your streaming subscriptions, tap on Your products at the bottom of the screen, then choose the Bills tab. Any services paid for through those accounts will show up in a group labelled Subscriptions.
- Most subscriptions will show up as monthly by default. If that's not correct, you can change the payment frequency. Tap on the service, then tap on the Settings cog at top right to edit the product.
Once you have that list, you have three main options.
If it's a service you're watching all the time, then of course you'll hang onto it.
If you never use the service, then simply log in online and cancel it. (Sorry, the app can't actually do that for you yet!) We have detailed guides to cancelling for Netflix, Stan, Disney+ and Foxtel.
Finally, consider suspending the service temporarily. You might cancel the account and then rejoin when a killer show appears. Or you might just sign up again for a limited period. One common example? Adding an extra streaming service during school holidays to keep the kids entertained.
There are only so many hours in the day, so stop paying for shows you'll never watch. Use the Finder app and take control of your finances.
