Tru2Way devices will still use CableCards. And, it doesn't matter how reluctant the cable companies are to provide them (very). It's the law. Far from dying, in fact, the cable companies must now use the cards themselves, going forward, in their own set-top boxes. Unfortunately I don't think they're mandated to deploy them separately, so they can still play dumb about installation procedures, and even pretend to have none in stock. This problem is specific to your area, where Cablevision has an exclusive contract with MSNBC. I think it's due to expire in the not-too-distant future, at which point Fios should pick up the channel. They already carry it everywhere else.
