of the TV they use... through you. That doesn't count OTA, cable, satellite, etc.
It won't change significantly any time soon. I know things are changing, but it'll still take five or ten years for those changes to significantly change traffic patterns.

Unicasting what everyone watches live on a random evening would use
significantly more bandwidth than Game of Thrones or whatever OTT drop.
Magnitudes more. It wouldn't even be in the same ballpark.
I agree as of this moment however that will change. Also note that our
customers do 100% of their TV as unicast OTT because that is the only thing
we offer. This does not cause nearly as much problems as you would expect.
