Off contract:

Looks like my billing cycle ends around the 25th of each month.
I currently have Dish scheduled for installation on the 30th.

I don't want to cancel DirectV prior to then, but I also don't want to pay both for overlapping billing.

Does DirecTV pro-rate refunds?

Mine was pro-rated when I cancelled.

Yes. You will pay for the next month starting on the 25th, but when you cancel on the 30th DirecTV will refund back to you the unused portion of the month that was paid. I believe it does take 4-6 weeks though for the refund to be issued.
