How does switched digital video affect customers who lease a CableCARD for their unidirectional cable ready product?

The current generation of unidirectional cable ready product (UDCP) retail devices are not capable of receiving channels delivered via switched digital video (SDV) in a bidirectional (as-needed) manner. Therefore, at this time, any digital video channel that is delivered via SDV requires a Spectrum Receiver or tuning adapter.

Customers can continue to use their UDCP retail device and CableCARD to receive video programming other than the programming delivered on the SDV system. Customers will be notified in advance of any SDV-related programming changes.
