So I don't think you can stop payment then start up again.
I was told the same thing with Directv.
It also depends on how much you want to fight it. Back when satellite TV was the only way to get sports packages, I called up, broke their balls, and got the NFL package for free from DTV. I would think that they would want to help you even more since you can get them all (except for NFL) through digital cable now. That said, they also might be used to these techniques.
