My System Specs

Default TV Tuner Card for my new build. Would this work in Canada with Rogers Cable?

Ceton InfiniTV 4 Quad-tuner Card for Watching Digital Cable TV on the PC, PCI-Express x1 Interface

Or is this only for the US Cable Networks that offer CARDS to watch TV on PC?

Does anyone know? They are being sold by the Canada site of the "eggxperts" folks, so in principle they are geared for the Canadian Market. But as they are greatly reduced in price from C$ 200 to 70 now, it raised my eyebrow as if they are useless in Canada.

I would greatly appreciate informed opinions.

Thank you kindly.

It will only work on the lower end channels which aren't digitally encrypted. (i.e. the channels you'd get on a TV if you plugged the cable directly into it without a set top box.
