Charging On-Demand to 3rd Party

Can On-Demand be set so that the user has to pay for it, as opposed to my account being automatically charged?  I'm renting out my condo, and I don't want the renter to run up a high tab!

A PIN prevents those who don't know it from making a purchase. Since a cable box doesn't "know" who is controlling it, I see no way to do what you want.

Thanks for the quick reply, Bruce!  If I understand these articles correctly, this is about setting a PIN so a user CAN'T make a purchase without it....but I want to let the user make purchase, but to pay for it themselves.  Will this accomplish that?

Thanks again.  I was hoping there was a way to make each purchase with a credit card vs. automatically charging the account.  Guess I could have them make purchases through a streaming stick instead of through my Comcast account.   Appreciate your help!
