There are two premiere video streaming services: Netflix and Amazon Instant Video. If I were a gambling man I’d wager more people know about Netflix’s offering than Amazon’s Instant Video, so I’d imagine a lot of you are wondering how they stack up. That really depends on what you’re looking for in a video streaming service. Because the two offerings are quite a bit different from on another.

Rather than making a generalization about what I think is best I’d like you to rank how important: selection, value, and high-definition content is to you. With ‘1’ being not important at all and ‘5’ being absolutely essential. Then we can objectively figure out which of the two best matches your needs.
