I'd pay the 8 bucks a month for Prime in a heartbeat. While its library is somewhat scant at the moment, it has the weight of a hugely powerful retail entity behind it to lend it some bargaining force that Netflix can't match. I expect Amazon Prime Instant Video to surpass Netflix within 5 years. I just wish on the rental/ purchase side of things they'd stop charging 4 bucks for a TV episode in HD. That's a bit excessive.
