If I discontinue Directv service is the antenna still active? If I had two accounts and closed one of them would the other active receiver work on the close account antenna?

yes; although you may have to rerun the satellite setup menu on each receiver to correctly set the dish/lnb type if it not identical from the dish you had each on priorly.

The short answer is that account status (active or not) only applies to the receivers. The dish (antenna) doesn't know or care.
