pago por cano (don't forget the special character on the "n")

pay per view= pago por vision
pipe=cano termino informal para conexion, cable,linea dedicada
so you can replace "cano" by one of those if you think they fit better

Pago por canal

La palabra "pipe" tiene que ver con "canal", "conexión". Es como el agua, no se paga por estar conectado, sino por el "consumo".

Establece la diferencia entre "pay por use" "pago por consumo" y "pay per pipe", "pago por conexión" o "pago por canal". Esta segunda locución es mejor,primero porque en la jerga de comunicaciones se usa mucho la palabra "canal" y sobre todo después de ver que dedican un ancho de banda "bandwidth allocation" a estos menesteres.

Espero que te valga
