Happy Friday TV Lovers!

This week we've got a Q&A on credit card alternatives for online subscriptions, what's new, deals, must-see TV, and more!

OK... now let's get to it!   

Q&A > Do I Need a Credit Card for TV Subscriptions?

Send us your most pressing TV viewing questions via email so we can answer them in an upcoming issue.

This week's question is from Cathy who says, "I want to switch to an antenna and Tablo but I don't like to use my credit card online. Is there an alternative way to pay for the TV Guide Service and other paid streaming services?"

For consumers who are still wary of paying for goods and services online, or who don't have a credit card for other reasons, a 'virtual card' service like is a great alternative.

Services like this allow you to create a virtual online credit card linked to your bank account or simply 'mask' the details of your actual credit card when making online payments. For added safety, the 'virtual cards' are locked to a specific merchant (such as Tablo for TV Guide Service or Sling or Netflix) so that your information can't be used for purchases elsewhere. also allows you to set monthly or annual spending limits to keep your streaming TV budget under control, and to avoid getting charged after taking advantage of free trials.
