Pretty sure those are the same exact feeds mapped to two different channel numbers.

They are;

Its a national or "CONUS" beam feed from DIRECTV 11 at present, on channel 390 (WCBS 2-DT N.Y.) which is then mapped to local channel 2 in the program guide at the receivers for N.Y. subs.

This mapping over of CONUS feeds to the local channel range is actually done to all of the "big four" networks for subs. in both the N.Y. and L.A. markets

Its done this way so these local feeds may simultaneously perform DNS service.

Nighttime shots on Alaska State Troopers usually looks bad. The well lit day scenes were fine.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.
