Headline says it alls. I've kind of held of getting my locals as they are on 72.5 and I really don't want a second dish. Does anyone know with all these other satellites and locations that DirecTV is gonna have are they going to pull the locals off 72.5 and stick them on one of the other satellites so I can get it with the new 5lnb dish?

Not for a long time. As soon as your HD locals are available on sat they will be available on the 5 LNB sat. Just get the 72.5 a second dish is no big deal.

DirecTV's use of the 72.5 orbital location is only temporary... and the locals will have to be moved, though odds are that they will be moved over to 101 once DirecTV 9s goes up.

While DirecTV 9s has a launch date of this year, expect it to go up early next year.
