Spared a grieving family
I was driving mom and grandma to garage sales (I've got better things to do with my time as garage sales are not my favorite activity) and we came across an estate sale. Among the items for sale at the estate sale was a DirecTV receiver and I politely reminded the host that DirecTV wants their equipment back. I think the equipment in question was a D10 SD receiver.
I probably spared the family from collection agency hell. Not much you can collect off of a deceased individual unless the estate has money and that takes the long process of going through probate. I felt kind of sad thinking this was once somebody's things and a grieving family had to decide to sell them off.
I've experienced ImOn (when they were McLeod USA), Mediacom, Comcast, and Time Warner and I currently have DirecTV. They are much better than broadcast TV.
I have not and will not cut the cord.
They have to call Direct TV.one of My friends when changing from dish they did't want all there boxes back due for some resion so he let take one and take it apart.

DirecTV never wanted my equipment back, just their access cards which they got. I continue to own all four boxes, the hard drives in them etc, and once my initial contract term was up it was all mine including the dish.
The only thing to look out for is a bricked unit - if there's an account in arrears associated with a box you'll not be able to activate it (without paying anyway, in which case just buy a new one).
