Re: [Rant] Price Increases - TV gosh.

Netflix, Hulu and unblock-us meet 90% of my TV needs. You didn't really say what kind of international TV needs you have so it's hard to say how well that would work. For spanish programming I've been told the mix offered by Hulu and Mexican/Brazil netflix is decent.

Once set-up said services aren't too difficult to manage. Unblock-us isn't quite as good in some ways as a VPN, in particular it doesn't anonimize your connection. But it is easy to implement house would with a simple DNS change on your router. They also make it very easy to change countries if needed.

If you need a set top box I find the WD Live box both affordable and adequate although I'm sure others will have their own suggestions.
