Usenet, VPN, or some other solution

So I received a copyright infringement email from Comcast. To discuss the copyright issue is not my goal here, please open another thread if you choose to talk about that. What I want to know, is the best way to stop Comcast from looking into my activities. From what I've read, you can use VPN, or Usenet. So, here are my thoughts:

VPN - I could install Tomato USB firmware for my router and have my entire internet connection go through VPN, or have my torrent downloads only go through VPN. I was thinking, I wonder how hard it would be to set up VPN or a proxy directly into TVShows. Thoughts on either the expanded capability or my options for using VPN?

Usenet. I've never really used Usenet, but from what I saw, you could use RSS feeds for the latest TV shows. If that's the case, couldn't I add all my shows with TVShows2 with the custom RSS? Thoughts?

    Hi SkyBehind,

    Sorry for the late reply, and for your ISP problems.

    I don't know if you have tried yet, but TVShows only downloads torrents, not usenet files. For version 3.0 we plan to support plugins, so that could be the way to use TVShows with usenet files.
