    lol this reminds me of that Friends episode where Joey and Chandler had free porn on their tv. I called to cancel my cable service (Cox cable) few weeks ago for 2/5. Even called yesterday to verify they were notified of my service request, and they said it would cut off sometime in the evening and he looked at my account and it only shows cable internet not TV.. Well I have no PROGRAM GUIDE and my clock is all wrong, but I still have programming!

    on Monday Im suppose to take the receiver back to them but I hope this isnt some scam to charge me for etra days!

    I remembered I canceled my cable at my old apartment and still had it for 5 years free. When they did the digital tv update at my complex they finally cut off my cable.

    No, this is common actually I think. My cousin had basic cable and after a month trial he canceled it and the cable guy came by and did something but the cable still works. Like you said there is no guide or anything but the channels are there.

    This is actually very common at where I am living right now. The school housing use to be a hotel tower and has 26 floors full of rooms so the cable company will cancel your cable (e.g. stop charging you), but since it costs more for them to send a guy out to manually shut of your cable very time a student cancels, they just leave it until someone comes out the next time around. Even if they do come out, they usually only cut you off if someone on the same floor cancels their cable. I enough people here who have had it for over 2 years now.

    Is it his fault if the cable company doesn't want to send someone out to shut it off? Should he unplug his cable? ;)
