Live Sports May Be Next Big Thing For Amazon Prime

Here's to hoping this rumor is true. As it is, I already get a lot of value out of my $99 a year, adding live sports to Amazon Prime would just be the icing on the cake.

"Amazon Prime members could soon be getting more bang for their buck when it comes to entertainment, as the e-commerce giant is rumored to be in talks with major sports leagues and television networks to offer live-streaming of sporting events. The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the matter, reports that Amazon has been in talks with the NBA, MLB, and NFL آ— as well as smaller leagues for soccer and lacrosse آ— to obtain rights to stream live games as part of its $99/year Prime subscription service or as an add-on service."
