      Could have been blocked by mistake, its not blocked now. I would not be surprised if it is an attempt by EZTV or one of the others who have been blocked to get back at the blockers. See this
      Sky blocks news site after DNS exploit | Broadband | News | PC Pro

      This paragraph in particular,
      "This essentially means that EZTV, or any other blocked site, has the power to render entire websites inaccessible to Sky subscribers," said Lennart Renkema, writing under his pseudonym Ernesto. "Luckily we were the target and not Google."

      Actually I blocked it. I think there is a bug in the message shown to people when they visit a blocked site. If you go to the pirate bay for example the blocked website message url will be: Access Blocked If we edit the bit after the "?" to anything we want then the error message will change. If we edit the url to Access Blocked then the message Sorry, this web site sup is not available through BSkyB.

      So is thisa bug or supposed be like that?

      I don't think it is a bug, the first part of the address takes you to Sky's blocked server. What comes after the forward slash is irrelevant. If you put ht tp://block ed.nb. sky.com/ (I have put in spaces to stop the form software showing a hyperlink) that takes you to the server block.
