I use BlackVPN to connect to the states from here in Ireland. I get around 2MB speed on my 5MB connection, which is plently for standard definition HULU and Netflix. The service has been flawless, my only slight criticism is that you can only connect one PC at a time, but this is a limitation of VPN's not just Black VPN.
Then there is also the price... it is very affordable for the service you get. Well recommended.
