Default Satellite TV system programming question for C, Ku, and Ka bands

Concerning the TV programming that is transmitting on the old 1980's style C-band satellite dish systems (called BUD's for Big Ugly Dish's), are some (or all) of the TV programming that is transmitted on the BUD's also simulcasted on the medium-sized Ku and Ka band satellite dish systems (not the more contemporary and modern all-digital mini-dish systems)?
Thank you
