    These fees have finally pushed me over the edge to do something I have pondered in the last few years, suspending service for the summer. Is 6 months still the maximum amount of time you can suspend?

    Generally yes, though it can go longer on a case by case basis. Any contract is frozen as well, timed credits do not.

    Sometimes being persistent works wonders, everytime I call to pretend to cancel or mention I pay too much and I want to switch, they give me credits, Just one call alone I got 12 months HD service free and DVR service free, plus whole home waived for 6 months, then the second $5 programming credit. Now I have my price reduced like a new customer discount. But then again I do the same with comcast with their HSI promotions discounts for 6 months.

    Well just called Directv to talk about the fee's.

    The RSN fee they dropped for me.
    I dropped Cinemax,Starz and Showtime Package.

    Brings my Monthy total down to $144 including taxes Down from $177.

    Still not what I'd call a bargin, But better.

    They offerered 8 payments of $21 on NFL ST(not Max) I declined!
