Hey guys this is a site that I frequent a lot. What is it? Its a Usenet/newsgroups service provider. Now I bet your wondering what those are or you've heard the terms every so often. Newsgroups are basically groups of people who discuss a certain subject or share information with each other about different topics. Another use for a newsgroup is generally file sharing. Here are some things that you might want to know before you indulge yourself into this type of group.

-To download files you will need a service there are a few free ones but to be honest they are not worth it. At all.
  -Since you need a service Astraweb is one of the greatest services to date. [Not a referral link]
   -The cost is 10$/Month with unlimited data.
   -902 Days Retention - What this means is that the file could be 902 days old and still be accessed to you.
   -Secure SSL Services.
   -Download speed isnt hindered so basically you use all of your bandwidth downloading one file.
  -You'll need something that will convert a .nzb file into a file that is usable so heres a client GrabIt. [Not a referral link]

I do not encourage you to download illegal content, I use the services to publish and listen/view others videos that they have produced. These are individuals who want to express themselves, or get their names out there to the different discussion groups there are.

The information age is truly a beautiful one. Newsgroups are wonderful to have, especially if you have a hobby which requires many areas of expertise.
