Sure you can get them but not in a format that mythtv can record in HD.  
Tivo HD uses cable cards to decrypt those channels, something mythtv 
probably can never support.

I think Mythtv is limited to analog cable, and broadcast HD for the 
foreseeable future.  Its fine by me, I'm OTA only and use blockbuster 
online rentals to fill almost everything I'd watch on cable.
