Receiving channels out of area (1 Viewer)

I recently took my receiver with me on a trip to California from Colorado. I used an RV stand and Dish 500 dish. Everything worked fine, but I was unable to view a few Denver local stations, like PBS (channel 6 0r 8206). I could still watch local Denver channels for the networks.

As far as I can tell, these unavailable channels were on satellite 119, transponder 5. Why would I not be able to view just those channels, ( I get a message that says I cannot view this channel outside of the viewing area), and how does the satellite know where I am?

What they said. I know spotbeam barely makes it to ABQ NM for those channels. At least the main ones are on Conus.
