you can go on Dish Pause for up to six months, I think you pay like $5 OR $10 per month

You can not go on dish pause within the initial commitment period (12 or 18 months, depending when u signed up)

You can put your account on hold for 6 months even if you are leasing a receiver. The fee is $10/month.

I did this for 5 months when I was away for training. I had a leased 942 at the time. The only thing that sucks about putting your account on hold is that you lose any National HD local stations (CBS HD) that you are receiving. You would have to fax a waiver back to Dish in order to get the HD channels again.

Actually, I'm finding my HD experience with Comcast to be better than that of Dish. Not quite as many channels, but clean and clear picture. My one HD CBS channel had quite a bit of pixelazation during a broadcast. I don't see that anymore with my HD locals.
