Does D* offer all of the local digital sub-channels, or do they focus primarly on the main networks (ABC, CBS, etc.)?

Dish Network (February 2002-August 2005)
Mediacom (August 2005-1/27/07)
DirecTV (1/27-07 - 4/14)

Dish Network (4/14 - ??)  Hopper, Super Joey, and two Joey receivers.

not off the sats. Main channels only. If you want the sub channels you have to use the H20/HR20 OTA tuner.

In fact, in most markets, it is ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox only. A few have CW and/or My Network.
