I suspended my account back in May, because there is a lull between the NHL CI season and the NFL ST season. I figured it was a waste money, since we mainly watch network programming, when there is no NFL or NHL. I also thought of it as a way to boycott DIRECTV price increases, but with Dougs insight "Content providers want to stick it to all carriers (Comcast, Verizon, DIRECTV, DISH, Google TV, you name it)." [link], I've decided that I'm actually boycotting content providers. No money to DIRECTV = no money to content providers. Today is my normal payment date, so its my second full month of not feeding the content providers. With my prorated credit, I have now saved over $239 toward my $270 investment in an OTA DVR (which works quite well by the way). One more month and its more than paid for. And I'll have the OTA DVR to do the same thing next year and save even more. So why have you suspended your account and how much have you saved?
