    sky router blocking site

    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 .

    tried tunnelbear still the same.

    try typing into google unblock then the site name, or site name then proxy access...works for me

    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 sky.com/hel…urt

    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.

    Lot of sites recently blocked due to threat of court action not just sky I guess u talking about a movie streaming site?

    installed firefox and then browsec, it did get me logged in to portal but was unable to stream video content, did not load page after a couple of mins I gave up?
