The great news keeps rolling in for people thinking about cutting the cord on cable. I just told you about a great new service coming from Sony. Now, two of the largest cable providers in the country are reading the writing on the wall and developing services that could let you stream even more of your favorite channels.

The biggest concern I hear from potential cord cutters is that they're afraid to lose out on their favorite shows. That's the fear cable companies use to keep you around and justify those $100-a-month bills. But, if you're looking for reason to get rid of cable for good, this latest news might be it. That's because even the cable companies are starting to realize that Internet streaming, not cable, is the way of the future

Cable companies and streaming services like Netflix should be nervous, because more and more content providers are thinking about bringing their content straight to customers over the Internet. The Sony deal is bringing over 20 channels from Viacom to viewers. But, these new deals have the potential to be even bigger.

Cable companies are starting to realize they can catch more bees with honey than vinegar. That's why Verizon and Time Warner are developing programs that could let you stream more content than ever before.
