Just tested it and it doesn't, connects to the Pirate Bay though. It uses the TOR network (the dark web), which I'm pretty sure you can configure to access US stuff.
I use VPN to access US sites, such as netflix. I also use it to access stuff like firstrow1.eu for mma streams, since that site has recently been blocked in the UK too.
I knew once The Pirate Bay had been blocked in the UK the Media Industry would push for more sites to be blocked.
How long before the Media companies decide what we can view and what we can't?
