    Amazon Prime users now have even more reasons to completely cut the cord on their cable. Amazon is offering up Showtime, Starz and nearly two dozen more streaming content providers to users with an Amazon Prime account.

The prices range from $2.99 per month up to $9.99 per month. You can try out the different services for 7, 14 or 30 days (depending on each individual channel). Here's a list:
    • Showtime: $8.99/month
    • Starz: $8.99/month

    I'm just not sure that the prices are right for me to cut the cord on offers like this. $10-20 a month per channel could add up quick and be no cheaper than what I pay for cable.

    While I do have my favorite channels, there are times that I'll occasionally catch something I want to watch on a channel I never think about watching. And with my stepson, it's great to have lots of kid-friendly options.

    Still, I'm glad to see something like this. I won't argue that we need something different than traditional cable service as an option, but, for our house, it's just not quite there yet. Wouldn't be that big of a deal if we could get decent antenna service for local channels, but I've never been able to get more than 1 or 2 channels on these new digital antennae.
