OK, this is probably a limited appeal question, but here goes: We are moving into an apartment while we build a new house. DTV not an option in the apt (faces N). Build may take a year. I have a pretty substantial collection of HD and HD DVR boxes. What I don't want to do, is to give the boxes back just to buy new ones when we get in the house. But I also don't want to pay for anything while the boxes aren't hooked up. Is this just nothing more than "suspending" my account? I know you can do six months, then get another six months. After that, what? The house might not be ready in a year. And what do I do if the boxes are buried in storage at the moving company, and the year becomes fourteen months?
