I recently moved into a place where there were two satellite dishes in the ground. Not being a television watcher, I'm not interested in installing anything or buying a service.
When I called Direct TV to ask them to remove both satellite dishes (one is Wild Blue, part of Direct TV), their answer: the dishes are probably out of date; after installation the dish belongs to the customer; Direct TV won't remove them; if I can find someone to remove them ($$?? - I can't), great.
In other words "Tough baloney on you unless you sign up for a package and owe us some money". But I'll do whatever I can to let others know that Direct TV's policy is certainly not customer-friendly!!
