How to cancel automatic billing: auto-renewing subscriptions

Some apps may offer services based on subscriptions or recurring charges, like video services and media services. This means that you will be charged periodically (on a monthly or annual basis) for content or services. There are also apps that offer subscription trials to users. If you want to stop your subscription payments or recurring charges, you need to turn off auto-renewing subscriptions. Here is how:
