So I have the following in writing from Directv customer service: "your account had been suspended starting 12/07/10 (12:47 PM). You can also be assured that you are no longer being billed for the services starting on 12/07/10. " But... checking be for de cabling everything, and the service is still working. So is this the honor system for suspension or does it typically take a while for suspended service to cease? Scheduled the suspension last week, to start prior to the new billing cycle. Odd.
