I went to tune to the YESHD Bonus cam channel and a movie started playing which I thought was weird, turns out it's the new movie The Bounty Hunter.

Looks like they just cut it off about a minute ago.

It's due to temp channels, like YES HD Bonus Cam, being part time PPV channels during non game time.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Makes sense, I didn't know that since I'm new to DirecTV.

It's because the first 5 minutes of all PPVs is free, and as sigma mentioned these channels are used for movies when not in service, so it's actually normal. Most of the time you can even see in the Guide on the part-time RSNs which movie it's going to be :)
