    My area has stopped playing that game, and as a result my bill went down considerably at the beginning of the year. For some reason, the cable cards, and the additional outlets associated with them, are now gone from the bill, no +, no -. We'll see what happens next.

    Mine did as well, but there is a caveat. You need to be on a 2 year contract.

    Err... How can I find out if I'm under contract or not? I'm wondering if I ended back under contract when I upped my internet speed last year maybe? (It wasn't mentioned, but on the other hand, at the time I wouldn't have cared).

    Just check your billing statement, whether on-line or in the .pdf document as shown below.

    Then you can find the contract agreement posted in your on-line account under Settings > Account Details > Legal Agreements & Contracts.

    Have to wonder if a similar effort assisted in snuffing the CableCARD mandate.

    I dunno man, that law is toast. So bringing it back from the dead is highly unlikely. I wouldn’t bet the house on it.

    It was an FCC rule, not a “law”.
