I'm thinking of getting rid of my cable TV subscription, but keeping my cable internet. Will a capture card with a TV tuner pick up TV broadcasts off it?

Once you go to internet only, most service providers will put a filter/block at your home to preclude anything but internet traffic. Some people are able to get a couple of channels, but it depends on the provider and the filter. You do not mention your provider or location.

It sometimes takes a while for the filter/block to be installled, sometimes not.

Once you cancel your cable subscription, just try it on your tv; if you get signal it will be available to the tuner card as well.
