Amazon Seeks Rights To Stream Live Sporting Events

As an Amazon Prime subscriber, I'm all for more content like this being added to the service but not if it is going to drive up the price of Prime. I primarily use prime for shipping (saves me a ton of money), the music, movies and such are just an added bonus. What do you think about Amazon adding live sports events?

What can Amazon do to draw more customers to its Prime service, which combines shipping discounts with streaming video and other perks in a $99/year subscription? Amazon is reportedly negotiating to carry live streaming video for Prime customers, potentially including events like tennis, golf, soccer, rugby, and auto racing.
