Explanation: If you have ever stayed at a hotel, you must have noticed that TV service is generally free, but a number of channels (mostly for viewing current and near current movies) are available on a pay-per-view basis. You select the movie, watch it, and, when you check out, the price of watching that movie will appear on your bill. The name of the movie is usually not listed, to protect the privacy of your viewing preferences, just in case you needed to submit your bill to a client for reimbursement. No one will ever know what you watched.
Pay television, or pay-TV, usually refers to subscription-based television services, usually provided by both analogue and digital cable and satellite, but also increasingly by digital terrestrial methods.
