Disconnected Dish service but still get a few channels?

Hi all- wondering if this is normal. I disconnected my Dish satellite service with them over the phone last Thursday as my contract was up. Turned the tv on Friday just to make sure it was disconnected, etc. and it was- got the generic message telling me what type of satellite box I have. Anyway, scrolling thru the program guide, most channels are blocked out, but I noticed NFL Network, AMC, and NatGeo in particular, were not. I checked them, and lo and behold, I still get them- along with some lame shopping channels in the 200's that I care nothing about. Anyway, my question is this- Has anyone else heard of something like this happening before and how long did it last before Dish detected it? Obviously I have to return the satellite boxes back to Dish, but was just curious?
