Re: VPN service I use strong VPN (www.strongvpn.com)
The have an excellent US/CAN/UK deal for $55/year. They have many servers across the US and quite a few in the UK.
I used them over unblock us because I have my PS3 connected to a router with dd-wrt. If you are only using a computer, something like unblockus works fine.
