Advertisements https://zatznotfunny.com/2020-09/cablecard-is-dead/ Per FCC filing of 9/4/20: "We...eliminate outdated CableCARD support and reporting requirements." This doesn't mean that MVPDs will necessarily stop offering and supporting CableCARDs in the immediate future. It just means that they are no longer required to do so by the government. We've seen multiple reports over the past couple of years of folks getting the runaround from their MVPD about obtaining or successfully activating a CableCARD for their TiVo. (Seems like certain providers, like Altice, Frontier and maybe Charter, are worse about this.) Those folks could contact the FCC to apply pressure to their MVPD and get the support they needed. Apparently, that's no longer an option. Looks like CableCARD users are on their own now. Will be interesting to see if any MVPDs send out notices this year to CC users telling them that those devices are no longer supported. Or perhaps we'll just see them continue to allow currently deployed CCs remain in use but no longer provision/activate any more of them.
