When you sign up for locals on Dish (new customer, or old), the ANALOG locals are downloaded into your receiver. No local HD channels (not yet, anyway).
But the receiver 811 or 921, will accept digital or analog OTA signals and add them to your program list.
Hopefully the next satellite launch will rectify that situation.
