How is the internet censorship over there? Debilitating? Mild annoyance? I'm less interested in politics and porn, and more interested in youtube, wikipedia, and reddit. Can you access those?

Also, can you orrent-tay ovies-may?

For Amazon you have to use a VPN. This is not because Saudi Arabia blocks the movies; Amazon blocks the movies over licensing issues.

This has not been the case for me. I often use Amazon for a variety of things - including DVDs - and have not had to use a VPN.

I'd recommend Strong VPN.
