how to change DNS on MBA

HI all
Sorry if this been asked before. I am in the UK and want to access the USA netflix. As the UK version aint good. I been told you have to change the DNS settings to the USA ones, in order for this to work. I am a N00b at this and would have no idea how to do this. Can anyone advise me best way to do this? I am using MBA on Lion.

thanks

abz

I think you are going to need a VPN service rather than just switching to a different DNS server. VPN Services have been listed here frequently, usually in the AppleTV forum, but I don't remember any of them.

Good Luck!
