Unblock Websites Blocked by Recent Delhi High Court Order

The Delhi High Court ordered the blocking of 219 websites which could be used to stream Fifa World Cup matches illegally. Order was passed on the basis of  Sony  who  owned Multi Screen Media (MSM), which has exclusive rights to broadcast the Fifa World Cup 2014 in India.

The original list of 472 websites to be blocked included some strange entries like Google Docs, but the order was then amended and the list brought down to 219; however,there are still some website which has nothing to do with World Cup

Let have a Trick to Unblock these website using DNS change

Change the DNS

If the URL change doesn't work, then you might want to try changing the domain name server to Google DNS or OpenDNS. Most people have reported that this method works on BSNL for them. I am going to describe the step by step for diffrent device. If you are quite smart and techi you can also change your DNS setting of MODEM also so that you need to change it on every device.

Unfortunately, Windows Phone 8 doesn't support changing DNS manually.

Try a Proxy
If changing the DNS does not work, you should try a Web proxy to open blocked websites. These websites simply route you through servers based in other countries, which means that you can access websites that aren't blocked in those countries.

Kproxy,Hidemyass and NewIPNow are  such websites. Just enter the name of the blocked website in the form and click enter. On the Hidemyass website, the free proxy is at the very bottom of the page, .
