The movies don't open. Access denied (#403)

Exact URL of the website in question:

Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no)

Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off?

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no):
Does the site work as expected when using Chrome?
Brave version (check About Brave):
0.70.123 Chromium: 78.0.3904.97

I don’t think that Brave itself is the issue. I tried on Brave myself from my ISP and from a VPN. Same problem.
Then, I tried with Crome, and it works. Have a look:

But, wait! This is not all! If you check the network traffic on the website, you will see that there are 3 failed requests with a 403 response code.

So maybe, just maybe, it’s because of the GET request on that endpoint.
I can see that the difference between Chrome and Brave, is that Chrome adds the “Referer” header with some extra info.

Sorry for the doble post, I found the same request on chrome and brave, have a look:

If you click on “Allow all cookies” in Sheilds, does it help? @boom @aav.soft

Not a bat idea, I can’t test this yet since I’m at work and I want to keep my workstation clean (that’s why I use Brave mainly) and this website has not less than 65 trackers.
I will try tonight at home on a virtual machine.
