      Sky Blocks, Torrents again

      Sky blocked a ton of sites last year, and the workaround was to use Opera on Off Road mode, however Sky have sussed this and done something to block again, is there a new method for getting on sites yet? Extratorrent mainly. Isohunt still works in Opera.

      There are ways and means to get around the blocking. Some are quite simple, others a little more complicated.

      There is a browser which a well known site launched last year to get around the blocking and this works very well. VPN software and Proxy Servers are also quite popular.

      Just a quick note, and I know that I skate on thin ice on this myself, but we aren't meant to promote torrent sites. I know that I cross post the news stories but there are many I can't post.

      P.S. Post also moved to the correct section.

      I in no way encourage the use of torrent sites but there may be sites you are struggling with (not torrent sites) due to the blocking. You could try here 188.126.64.107
