If you're still in the same spot beam area, you could still receive your old channels, but I think that probably violates some FCC regulation about living in one DMA and receiving stations from another DMA.
Why not call the Mover's program (1.888.DTV.MOVE)? They are offering up to $500 in savings for 'qualified' customers ("Qualifications based on tenure, package level, payment history and other factors"). A lot of unknowns as to exact qualifications, so until you ask the question, you won't know. But call and find out; the worst that could happen is 'you're not qualified' and you end up doing this as a DYI move.

However, it is part of your contract to provide DirecTV with the location of your equipment, so you certainly should do that. That will also assure that you get the proper local channels for your location.
