Imagine the channels are available via Amazon Prime in addition to via cable/satellite, and you can choose one or the other or both. If $119 a year got you every Sox/Bruins/Celtics game would it move you any closer to canceling cable? Could you get by on Netflix, Amazon, and the sports that are on free TV?

That's definitely a good-case scenario. I would still want my premium channels somehow (HBO, Showtime, etc.), spoiled-ass first-worlder that I am.

Yeah I was just watching stuff on Showtime last night via Prime and we don’t subscribe to that. You can’t watch live stuff but they seem just as good as their own streaming options.
