FYI, unblock-us.com is a handy service that lets you easily switch between the different Netflix libraries (US, Canada and UK). It costs $5 per month and is well worth it!

(You only require one Netflix account).

I've seen unblock-us.com being recommended a lot. I signed up for it a couple days back to get my Burn Notice fix and it's definitely awesome. I went through the trial a month ago and found the streaming to be real crap (maybe I just went through it at a bad time) but after signing up for a month it's now great.

The US Netflix has so much great content (but we have all the cool BBC stuff here too).

You should try http://playmo.tv

I understand that Netflix blocks some content from non-US customers, but what CA and UK content is blocked from US customers?

It's not that content is blocked, each region has a distinct catalog based on what Netflix has licensed for that region. There is strong overlap, but all regions are unique.
