What is VPN?  (From website of Grey Coder  http://www.greycoder.com/best-vpns-2014/)

A VPN (virtual private network) is a service encrypts and redirects all the internet connections on your computer.
This means all the data leaving your computer is encrypted, which adds a layer of protection against hackers and
eavesdroppers. It is also very difficult for your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to monitor you or block your
connections. A VPN service will also allow your to computer to appear to be Europe, the USA, or other countries at
will. This is helpful if you want to access blocked media like streaming videos. VPNs differ from web proxies
because VPNs encrypt and redirect all of your computer’s outgoing network connections, whereas proxies will only
usually only redirect particular protocols within an application. Note that VPNs may slow down your internet
connections a bit, but in some cases they may actually speed up your connections. VPNs won’t really affect direct
downloads, but they will affect web browsing and torrenting (basically anything that pulls data in lots of small
bursts). Personally, I don’t notice a difference unless I’m connected a very remote server in Japan or Romania
(from the US). I don’t recommend using free VPNs because they are usually run by untrustworthy companies, and
tend to sell your private information. If you need a extra layer of privacy when signing up to VPN services, I suggest
using an pseudo-anonymous payment method such as Bitcoin or Liberty Reserve, and doing a DNS Leak Test
when using a VPN. However, for most people, this kind of obfuscation is not necessary.

I have personally used:
HMA (Hide My Ass)  I liked this one the best, but it's more expensive
Hot Spot Shield - I am currently using this one
Strong VPN - I haven't tried this one, but I have friends that have recommended it

VPNs, or Virtual Private Networks, allow users to securely access a private network and share data remotely
through public networks. Much like a firewall protects your data on your computer, VPNs protect it online. And while
a VPN is technically a WAN (Wide Area Network), the front end retains the same functionality, security, and
appearance as it would on the private network.

In fact, the lion's share of modern VPNs are encrypted, so computers, devices, and other networks that connect to
them do so via encrypted tunnels

If you need a more reliable and robust arrangement (one that also supports site-to-site connections), consider
using a dedicated VPN router. And if you just want to use a VPN to secure your Internet traffic while you're on
public Wi-Fi hotspots and other untrusted networks—or to access regionally restricted sites—consider subscribing
to a third-party hosted VPN provider

Here's another excellent article about VPN's you should read  (goes into great detail)

                                    Spoofing

This service offer access to hundreds of international services. Users can access services based in
different countries from different computers using the same account as their home.  And since the traffic is
not being routed through a VPN channel, there are no slowdowns or network congestion as well

Unlocks TV, film & music not available in your current location

It is not recommend to use a Spoofing service and a VPN at the same time because of the risk of speed
& reliability loss.

Here are 2 of the better known services available.

I tried this one out and it works.  For watching Shows and Movies it is better than VPN.  You can sign
up for an 8 day free trial.

I haven't tried this one, but I have read some good comments about it.
