Severe compression, but done with some decent equipment properly configured. On my Comcast DVR, WLS 7.1's live buffering can be upwards of 50 minutes. In comparison, WBBM 2.1 is about 18-20 minutes.

On my Comcast DVR, it does highly vary from channel to channel. WBBM is the highest, nearly 8-9%. WLS 7.1 is the worst, although WTTW is probably about the same now.

I can tell it's much more compressed. On my Comcast DVR, a recording is now barely 3%/hour of it's tiny 120G drive. It used to be 4-5%.
