NY HD locals are on a spotbeam which most certainly does NOT reach PR! I think you might be able to buy SD NY locals from some company other than Dish...

I thought you wanted NY, NY HD locals which are indeed on a spot beam. Rochester HD locals are still on a conus beam on 61.5. (Rochester SD locals are on spots on 110.)

That was my point. Someone said they were on spotbeam. So the original poster should be able to "move" and get the NY locals.

they are uplinked twice

The ones on spotbeams are for NY addresses and are in the 6000's (remapped to the normal numbers)
The ones on CONUS are ONLY for folks who submit the necessary RV forms (are in the 9950's and I dont know if they are remapped)
