I subscribed to Sling TV on my Roku for the NCAA Finals in March of 2017. It worked just fine, to be fair. Afterwards I decided I missed broadcast sports enough to upgrade myself to a better cable package and so I didn't need Sling TV anymore. So I cancelled in late March 2017.

They sent me the standard "Sorry to see you go" emails and then "We want you back" emails over the proceeding months. but I didn't realize they had kept charging me. I noticed the latest charge in June of this year over 15 months later! Yeah, I should probably keep better track of my account charges. But, you know, when you cancel the account and they cut off your service and they send you the ex-customer emails you just assume they stop billing you. Well, excuuuuuuuse me for assuming what should be the obvious!

And, to make matters worse, I got the runaround from Sling TV when I pointed out the hundreds of dollars of errant charges. [continued below]....

..... They said they couldn't look into the matter unless I provided them with details of the account that I CANCELLED 15 MONTHS AGO. They have my email address! They OBVIOUSLY have my credit card number. SO LOOK IT UP!

Still waiting for my money. Seriously, reconsider cable.

TL;DR; Don't assume they'll stop billing you after they cancel.
