Sky Broadband has begun blocking access to file-sharing site The Pirate Bay. It joins Virgin Media and Everything Everywhere which have already taken similar action.
The UK High Court had demanded the move after complaints by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) that Pirate Bay facilitated copyright infringement by providing magnetic links to movies, music and other media.
O2 and Talktalk said they were still working to implement the ban.
A sixth operator, BT, has been given extra time to make the necessary arrangements. It is expected to act within the next fortnight.
Sky said: “We have invested billions of pounds in high-quality entertainment for our customers because we know how much our customers value it. It’s therefore important that companies like ours do what they can, alongside the government and the rest of the media and technology industries, to help protect their copyright.”
A spokesman noted that it had acted ahead of a 1 June deadline.
