I currently live in the UK and my GF in USA. Various web page are blocked here like news videos etc and I want to access them.
Is there anyway I can use my GFs connection in USA to get round this from my home network in the UK?
I don't want to remote as that is not the same experience and I can't leave my GFs computer on 24/7.

Yes you may setup a vpn server from her connection - but standard dsl and cable connection would generally have pretty poor upload speeds meaning that watching video would out of the question (& most service providers do not look too highly upon it) - you would be able to surf websites with a little lag.

You would be better off looking at a service - http://lifehacker.com/5935863/five-best-vpn-service-providers
