61.5 was launched with the purpose of converting more cities to spotbeams so DISH could come closer to 100% HD LOL. What do you think is the answer to your foolish question, no more "moving".

Every local channel on 61.5 is on a spotbeam (different spotbeams).

DISH has HD for Denver and Chicago on a ConUS transponder but that is not available as locals.

Only the ones mentioned above ... and who they are available to, if anyone, is unknown.

Some markets have their locals on 77 ... but locals are locals ... they are only available to customers within specific local markets.
