I dont use VPN myself (SSH tunnelling all the way, immensely complex VPN set-ups FTL!), but I got an INSANE deal on a VPS. I will grab the link for you now, if I can find it...
It's hosted on a dual quad Xeon machine, you get 10GB HDD space and 512MB ram, along with 300GB bandwidth. For $5 a month.
You could also get a Shell account from somewhere like Santrex, but IMO for an extra $2-3 a month you should get a VPS. You get complete control.
Bare in mind, that when you are streaming Hulu through it, the VPS is downloading from the Hulu servers, and then UPLOADING to you, so it uses twice the bandwidth.
I wouldnt really reccomend you getting a VPS for Megavideo, because it only delays the inevitable. But if your outside the US and want to take advantage of sites like Hulu, then a $5/m VPS is well worth the money!
I chose to run Debian 5 on mine, since it's similar to Ubuntu. CentOS came with it by default - It was OK, but I preferred Debian. CentOS used less ram, but Debian by no means hog's it.
Of course, I had to install swanky graphing software on it:- http://vps.redfern.me/munin/redfern....edfern.me.html
edit: If that link is down, then it's because my VPS OS has been re-installed. I will be re-installing Munin soon
