Advertisements We finally have a Charter competitor moving in providing gigabit fiber to the home and decent rates for cable, but they say they will not support cable card. The TiVo web site states this "Federal law mandates that all major cable companies provide CableCARDs" So is that the way the law reads? "Major?" This is a local Telephone Coop corporation, so they are likely not "major" in size. I also found this article that says Obama signed a law that dropped the Cable Card mandate: Obama Signs CableCARD Death Warrant | Light Reading and House Votes to Kill CableCARD Mandate | Light Reading I was really looking forward to telling Charter and their ever increasing prices to kiss my butt, but I cannot stand the thought of TV without my TiVo.
