hi, my sky fibre router is blocking a website even though I have logged into mysky then broadband shield and custom allowed that ip address, still no joy? this applies to my smartphone as well although it does get through if i turn off wifi and use tesco mobile 4g! I have looked at sky router settings on 192.168.0.1 but don't see anything unusual. It's a portal for watching tv i'm trying to reach.
any suggestions most welcome, thx.

Sky might have blocked the site .

Try using a VPN and see if that works .

What website?

Site is probably blocked by Sky "under order of the High Court" usually due to copyright violations; all other major UK ISPs have same blocking obligations. Sky provides a list of blocked sites which is farcically an excellent source of where to find copyrighted content where that block can usually be circumvented via using a VPN https://www.sky.com/help/articles/websites-blocked-under-order-of-the-high-court

A freebie VPN with multiple geo-loactions is built into the Opera Browser for Windows or there is a freebie standalone Opera VPN for Android; maybe other mobile OSs.
