Cable Card needed for playback?

I have a bunch of shows recorded on my Premiere that were recorded from premium cable channels from my current cable company. I'm about to move to a place that is served by a different cable company. Will I still be able to watch my existing shows when I no longer have a card from my old company?

You can watch anything prerecorded on a TiVo, even if it doesn't have *any* cablecard, much less the original one. Only for new recordings does it check for a cablecard.
