I have several True Bloods I am behind on but I don't really want HBO anymore.

If I cancel HBO, will I still be able to watch the True Bloods that are on my DVR?

I "think" that they lock out; but I am not 110% sure on that.

I don't know about HBO, but Showtime and Starz programs I had recorded were still viewable after I dropped those premiums.

They only seem to lockout the VOD stuff when you drop the pack.

the DVR doesnt care if you subscribe to the channel or not. Heck I still have some programs from recent freeviews (including a hockey game) that play fine

as noted, VOD is probably locked out

I'm not with DirecTV but Iceberg is absolutely correct. "The DVR doesn't care". I never paid for HBO and still have in my DVR an HBO documentary about Ted Williams from when Dish had an HBO free preview. I believe that's the same despite the service that you subscribe to.

I also had episodes of Terriers that were watchable in my Dish DVR while FX was dropped for the last month. I bet it's the same as canceling a premimum service, and you paid to view the episodes that you did DVR.

This is good to know. VoD is likely where I got my view from.
