[mythtv-users] OT: Comcast local QAM - would they still send signal if I cancel?

I don't think this is a dumb question, it's certainly not one that Comcast
would answer...

Today I receive my local stations over QAM to my HDHR as delivered by my
Comcast subscription.

I'm wondering if anyone actually knows (first hand) if Comcast kills your
signal completely or simply backs you down to "locals only" (like an
antenna") if you completely cancel your account.  I envision that it's more
work for them to send a truck to kill the signal completely than it is for
some support agent to back down my subscription and stop billing.

Basically I'm wrestling with a decision to put up an HD antenna of my own
or not... if there's a decent chance that Comcast would keep feeding me the
locals, I'd love to know.  Of course, YMMV will be in everyone's response -
I understand.
