Not all networks have unlimited nor easily upgraded access networks.

Why would an ISP not want to conserve edge resources? If I’m doing iptv I’m 
better off doing multicast which would conserve loads of BW for something 
popular like the Super Bowl. Especially if I’m doing this over docsis. 

You pay for 95th percentile. If that is decided by everyone watching Game 
of Thrones one day, then using the same resources for Super Bowl the next 
day will be for free.
