They way I get access to Netflix, Hulu, etc. is to connect my Roku device to my Slingbox device. In my case the Roku is on the composite video port of my SB. I use Slingplayer on my PC in France, but the add-on for the browser just fine. The PC is connected to my TV for viewing a larger screen. My uplink from the SB is 5 Mbps and the download speed in France is 8 Mpbs. I've been watching my movie services for over two years now from France or any other place outside the USA. Roku is cheap enough ($50 for the basic model). No monthly fees. Of course you don't have to use Roku, any similar product will work (Boxee, WD Media Center Hub, etc.).
