An anonymous proxy is an option and will generally work. It is worth
noting that hulu.com figured out a way around this some time back as a
result of the flash transmission occuring directly (not via the proxy). A
VPN terminated in the US is now needed to access hulu.com.
I can't say whether a proxy would be sufficient to access PBS or whether a
VPN would be needed.
