It's not up to Apple to make the decision.

Netflix don't currently operate in the UK and haven't commented on a UK launch since January (http://www.imdb.com/news/ni1485357/). They have since switched their attention to the Canadian market so it's highly unlikely they will launch in the UK this year.

Sometime next year is currently the best we can hope for. In the meantime LoveFilm (http://thenextweb.com/uk/2010/10/13/official-uk-netflix-lovefilm-is-coming-to-playstation-3/) have just confirmed they will be streaming their content to the Playstation 3 so hopefully the Apple TV is next in line for them.

A way to use VPN with the Apple Tv is using DD-WRT on a router.

You need to sign-in to US Apple Store for Netflix option to appear. It won't work anyway unless you set-up a VPN with US IP address.
