better streaming quality via Propitiatory Channel Apps

I notice the picture and sound quality via xfinity (x1 or traditaional cable box) is regressing quite a bit.  


Chanels that have specific standalone applications have astronimically better picture and sound quality than X1.


For example the ESPN app has better PICTURE and SOUND quality than ESPN via X1 

The TNT app has better Picture and Sound quality than TNT via X1

The same goes for Showtime, tbs etc..


Xfinity is compressing its signal and it is now quite noticeable.  I find myself trying to use as many stand alone channel apps to watch tv (even though i am delayed about 30-45 seconds).  can anyone else notice this difference or is it just me?
