I have found a really good plugin for Chrome and Firefox called MediaHint, its basically a proxy server. I have been using it for a while now and the speeds are generally what you should get without a proxy.

Also in the same league is Hola, although I've noticed they have to keep updating it to bypass the blocks. Both Hulu and Netflix seem to chase their addresses and block pretty quick sometimes.

This one hasn't had any problems for me, i signed up for a HuluPlus trial. the video loads really fast (considering my 2.8mb/s download speed)
