Blocking TV episode/movie websites by URL hostname

Hello all,

I want to try to block TV episodes/movie websites by URL hostname. Because we are a national media/TV broadcaster agency in our country, i don't want to use "Block by Category" or something.

I have a list of websites that stream/link to TV episodes/movies. I tried to block by rule such as "url.hostname in list = LIST_OF_URL_HOSTNAMES"  but our web gateways had big CPU load, slow surfing complaints etc.  then i had to remove the block rule.  What's the best approach to block websites by a huge list of hostnames?

Out of curiousity -- how large was your list?
