Is VPN a dirty word?

I am thinking of going VPN as I would like to look at UK television ie bbci ITV Channel 4 etc. To hook up a PC with HDMI and connect to my Panasonic 42" plasma. I can do it now with my laptop with HDMI using expat shield but the picture is not very good grainy! Would it be any better with a dedicated stand alone PC has anyone any experience in this set up?

Virtual Private Networking. Doesn't sound dirty to me.

Bad picture can be anything from slow network (due to the VPN) or your own netowork through to the streaming format used by the company (BBC, ITC etc)

VPN isn't a dirty word and until you work out what causes the problem I don't think using a dedicated PC will fix it.
