Honestly, I think I would. It's pretty common knowledge at this point that the catalogue of material netflix has is -- to be blunt -- a bit shit. There is no way I'd pay for it alone. Where they've made themselves really stand out is in their original series (e.g. House of Cards, Orange is the New Black), and the series they've syndicated so they're on Netflix as soon as they're broadcast (e.g. Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad). All of this has been extremely high quality programming, and having instant access to fuss-free HD streams of them is something worth paying for.
The catalogue is a bit thin at the moment, but adding what would essentially be Top Gear (an internationally popular and successful show) to the repertoire would definitely get more people interested (whereas at the moment they have to take a bit of a punt on well-received, but unknown programmes).
