Yes. A Tuning Adapter is not required to watch currently viewable channels. If, in the future, Time Warner Cable begins to “switch” channels you enjoy today, we will notify you in advance. Once a channel is switched, a Tuning Adapter will be needed to view them on CableCARD equipped retail devices. Other CableCARD retail devices that are not compatible with the Tuning Adapter require a Time Warner Cable digital converter in order to view “switched” channels.
