Directv to Pay Cable costs?

I have heard of Cable companies paying early termination fees (up to a certain dollar amount) for satellite customers, though; probably since contracts are much more common for satellite customers than for Cable. Even if the Cable company has promos with contracts, they almost always offer the same services without a contract at the same non-promotional pricing you would be paying when your contract expires.
Still, it wouldn't hurt to contact DirecTV to see if they can offer anything.

I recall about a year ago that Directv had a promotion to pay (through a Visa gift card) up to $200 in cancelation fees. I do not remember if that was for switching from a specific provider, like Dish, or just any provider.
Some of their offers are only available on outbound calls or in specific markets, so keep that in mind.
