    Default List of sites blocked by sky broadband

    Does anyone have or know of a place where there is a list of websites blocked by sky broadband?

    Reason I ask is that I wanted to check psx scene for something and it would seem sky are blocking it. Works fine on my phone via o2 data connection, fails as soon as I jump onto a sky bb connection (that includes cloud hotspots).

    Is there an easy way round it? Change DNS servers or something similar? I even tried using one of the free online proxies (hidemyass) and it wouldn't load through that either.

    Was going to say I have not had a problem, but I am using openDNS.

    That's very bizzare, I've been randomly trying for days, both on laptop and mobile. I assumed it was down then decided to check.

    Just tried it now on a cloud hotspot that didn't work at time of posting and it loaded fine. I'll check at home once I'm back.

    Yeah mate. Must be the same one because it just worked for me on a cloud hotspot that wasn't working previously.

    I'm using Firefox, but have tried Safari and Chrome, all with reboots of mac and router to test the theory. All fine here

    Its not the browser, my phone browser loads it up fine using mobile data connection, switch to my home sky broadband and it fails to load.

    Maybe the site is blocking a range of sky IPs, would explain why some work and others don't?

    I've just got home and tested it, still not working for me, will change to google dns and see what happens.

    EDIT: Changing DNS made no difference, still get page unavailable.
