That's just two lineups. According to SD board member  Robert Eden 9 
days ago
SD will allow 4 lineups per account. So you shouldn't have any problem 
using one paid SD subscription to cover both OTA/ATSC and DirectTV.

SD folks: I nominate this for the FAQ: add a question
"How many different channel lineups can I have?"
with the answer
"Each paid SD account will be able to create up to 4 lineups, so you can 
use SD to cover such diverse things as analog broadcast, HD/ATSC 
broadcast, analog cable, and digital/firewire cable programming with one 
and maybe add Robert's comment from that forum post, amended slightly: 
"The reason some user created multiple Zap2It Labs (Z2L)accounts was 
because Z2L (and DataDirect as a whole), doesn't allow a lineup to be 
added twice with different channel layouts. The recommended solution 
there is to do the filtering locally and not via the lineup editor."

That is, if the above cited forums post is still correct.
