      Sky Blocking Netload???

      Hi,

      I'm a premium user on Netload and since yesterday have been unable to download via Netload. I'm a Sky Fibre subscriber. I know BT users are having the same problem. I'm just wondering if any other Sky users are having similar issues? I can get to the Netload site but getting access denied when trying to download

      I know colleagues using ISPs other than Sky and BT are having no problems.

      I'm wondering if Sky and BT are blocking?

      Any help appreciated,

      Thanks

      Have you tried accessing it via a Proxy server? This would confirm whether the issue is to do with Sky or the site.

      Hi Scubbie

      I can connect through a proxy.

      A friend is using a different ISP provider from Sky (and BT as it seems those users have the same problem) and he can download fine. I don't really know how to go about getting this issue resolved. I'm sure as a single user complaining to Sky they would not take much notice. I'm sure it's not just myself having this problem.

      Hi everyone,

      I have the same problem with Sky, can download from different hosts but NOT netload.
      Since yesterday I can't download at all from this hoster, I could access the site but couldn't get any file from it! It says "access denied"

      Please help!

      It is possible it has been put on the IWF list, some UK ISPs such as BT and Sky included, seem to apply this a lot more strictly than others -
      Removal of Criminal Online Content | Internet Watch Foundation (IWF)

      I have just tried to see if it is listed as a blocked site on the IWF site, but I can't find the list of any. You may have better luck:

      Report child sexual abuse content to the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF)

      You may be able to confirm if Sky is blocking it by performing a 'tracert'. It could be that a link is down.

      Re: Sky Blocking Netload???

      Thanks Isitme & Scubbie for your answers, well I have contacted Sky Customer Service and asked about this website, is it blocked or not but They said it's NOT on the list. I have also e-mailed netload about this issue and I'm waiting for the response, but meantime looks like host came back to life once again...

      Nice one.

      For reference though, in the past when sites have been blocked the nice people at Sky haven't always been aware of it, which is why we didn't suggest contacting them directly.
