If you look it says that it's for rigid pipe only and never to use it on hose.
Don't know where you saw this. The most I saw on the Lowe's site was "Cable must be installed straight on pipe." This really means, "don't wrap it around itself." I never saw the words "rigid" or "hose."
Here's the manufacturers brochure, also doesn't say "not on hose." Just says OK on plastic or metal pipe.
