Did not have HD before but I have it now

So I received a Tivo and just got the cable card for it today and got it all working. So before I did not have HD channels but with the Tivo I can receive them. Is this normal for it to be able to get HD channels without an HD channel package?

Comcast does that all the time here. They just authroize the cable card for the digital tier you subscribe to, and never go to the step of turning off the HD channels. They did that for two of my three Tivos.

Just enjoy your high quality standard def
