The cord-cutting revolution has been alive for some time now and on-demand content is everywhere thanks to services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and more. It doesn’t stop at on-demand, though. Services like Sling Television and PlayStation Vue offer customers live programming outside of a traditional cable service, and it looks like Amazon might be going that route too.

After Transparent managed to win a handful of awards and become the first original series from a streaming video service to win a Golden Globe for Best Series, it became abundantly clear that Amazon wasn’t fooling around. Now news has surfaced that Amazon has been in talks with both CBS and NBCUniversal about possibly offering those network’s content on a live TV service.

This isn’t a simple process, as shown by Sony’s slow expansion, Sling TV’s inability to offer some of the more popular television channels, and Apple’s struggles to even get off the ground with their subscription TV service. Will Amazon succeed where others have failed?
