Sky Broadband has begun blocking access to file-sharing site The Pirate Bay.
It follows Virgin Media and Everything Everywhere which have already taken similar action.
The High Court had demanded the move after complaints by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) that TPB facilitated copyright infringement by providing magnetic links to movies, music and other media.

O2 porn filesharers to be sent letters from film-maker
O2 customers suspected of illegally sharing pornographic films made by Ben Dover Productions will begin receiving letters from the film-maker shortly.
The firm won a court order in March forcing O2 to pass on details of the owners of 9,124 IP addresses linked to illegal downloads.
The High Court has now approved the text of the message that will be sent.
