If this is illegal, no need to answer (but only to tell me that it is illegal) all I want to do i watch the new terminator series on my computer but becasue I am a UK resident they say it does not stream to that region of the world,

So i thought, well maybe i could make their servers believe i am from the USA - I can see how that might be illegal but maybe its not

As far as i know its not illegal, but it may be a bit in the grey.
What you can do is use a proxy server. There are lots of them out there. I have used them before to watch The IT Crowd while here in the US.
Here is a list of some proxy servers:

There are many more out there that you can find with a simple google search.
It may take a while to find a good one with good speed, but it should work for you.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

You dont have to pay for it. There are lots of free proxy servers.
Follow these instructions to set it up. Some of them may be very slow and you may want to disable it for normal browsing, but it should work for what you want when you need it:
