This is Not true in SE Phoenix feed off the Chandler Head-End. Still most channels above 1100 require a Tuning adapter for me. Most all channels in the Variety and Movie Paks still require a Tuning Adapter. Also most of the HBOs and SHOs also require a Tuning Adapter. The Chandler Head-End has also been very slow to roll out the MPEG-4 conversion, While family members in Glendale have seen a much broader rollout of MPEG-4.
