Ok, maybe many of the more computer savvy members of ARRSE have already solved this problem, but I've only just discovered the solution If you don't already know, in America there are some great TV streaming sites such as HULU, foxondemand, NBC, ABC etc etc. http://www.hulu.com/ (Lost, 24, Simpsons, Desperate Housewives, movies.). http://www.fox.com/fod/ (Family Guy, Simpsons etc). http://www.nbc.com/ (has oldies like the a-team, Quantum Leap etc). Problem is you're only able to watch them if you're connected to the net over the other side of the the pond. After a little bit of looking around the web, I found a simple to install proxy which is free and fast enough to watch these things (Pandora works as well). The link is here: http://www.hotspotshield.com/ (looking around this software appears to be safe - no viruses etc, but it does add an advert bar to your web browser when the connection is activated). One thing though - if you're using a Mac, to watch HULU you have to clear the browser cache and then turn on private browsing (as they check your cache to see if you're using a proxy). Been using it for a few days now & I've had no problems. Seems like people have been doing this for a few years though, so hopefully it's a longterm fix. Enjoy!
