Please help me sort out using a VPN only for traffic going to my Roku.

I want (all?) the traffic for (two) specific devices on my network (Rokus) to go through a VPN so that I can reclaim some of the bandwidth that I am already paying Verizon for when using Netflix. I'm in America, and I'm disinterested in masking that since it may cause problems with Netflix or Amazon Prime, etc., if it suddenly looks like my Rokus are in Argentina or whatever.
I'm seeing some indications that DD-WRT will let me tunnel just specific MACs or IPs through a VPN, but the reports are infrequent enough to leave me with doubts.
Has anyone succeeded in using DD-WRT or similar firmware to persistently put selected non-PC devices on VPNs for Netflix, etc.? What were the gotchas that had to be resolved? And what's the best VPN for the money in this scenario?
