Behold a page of useful links, whatever your desire may be. (Note: This only really benefits UK residents.)
Here you can find the main Netflix site.
Not a member? No problem. Just sign up and the first month is free.
What is it? Netflix is an online Film and TV service where for just £5.99 a month, you have access to an extensive entertainment catalogue. The great thing is you can watch it anywhere. On your computer, Playstation, XBOX, phone, tablet etc. If it has internet access access, chances are there's a Netflix app.
I know there's an ongoing battle with Amazon's LoveFilm service however I personally prefer Netflix in terms of what it has to offer.
Not content with what the UK store has to offer? No worries, just install the Hola add-on to your internet browser (see below).
What is it? - Hola Unblocker is a nifty little add-on that basically removes the restrictions that US sites have (in that you have to be in the US to watch them). Sure you could use an IP router or other complicated method but Hola is simple to install and use and best of all it's free.
What can it offer? - Netflix member? Then you can access the entire US store with your UK account. Plus you can also use sites such as Hulu (a premium version of iPlayer for the US) and Fox.
New features also include a do-it-yourself kit that gives you complete power over which sites you can access, no matter where you are located.
You should know about these already, but just in case...
