      Hmmm. I would be interested to know how anyone can restrict sites outside the UK, I have been trying to block traffic to our firewall from any non UK hosts for ages now with no success. If I did it by IP I would be configuring the Firewall all year!

      Any ideas?

      The big sites, such as tv networks block IPs so other that that no Sorry!
      can you not at least block large series of ips known to come from abroad?

      This is the same issue as CNN - Morethan's hosting provider's upstream ISP hasn't updated their filters to allow the Sky IP range in.

      As Sky's range is rather large (1.05 million IPs - 90.192/12 for net anoraks), RIPE allocated us this range from a greenfield IP range which until now has never had anyone on it.

      Consequently, IP carriers round the Internet filter out these ranges (bogon filters).. mainly to stop things like spam/DDoSes spoofed from these illegal IPs.

      Now that this range is no longer "illegal", these ISPs need to update their bogon filters.

      Most are pretty good at updating them, however theres always a few that fall through the cracks, hence situations like this.
