Easynews is great. They're a block based site, so you pay per bandwidth used. If you don't know how much you would use, and don't want to pay for what you're not using, then block based pricing in the way to go.

I use Supernews. $12 unlimited use. SSL. Works great.

Binverse is a good one for noobs. It's really easy to use, has a built in search, and it's cheap. It also offers a trial period if you want to check it out.

Thundernews is supposed to be pretty good too. With lots of different package options, some block based and some not.

First, thanks for the answers. The answers bring up more questions. As it always does. Regarding the four products you mention, I assume these are Usenet sites. Is some sort of newsreader needed also? Looking over the Easynews site it looks like it is used with a web browser. I assume this eliminates the need for a separate "reader". Is this correct? Again, thanks.

I had easynews as far back as about 10 years ago. It was a very no frills setup, all through the browser back then.

Once you graduate from easynews you can step up to the best that is www.Giganews.com. Also you can get a premium news service and use SABNZBD to use it through your browser.

Yeah... many of the new ones, including Easynews and Binverse, have their own web app reader which eliminates the need for a separate Newsreader app. But you can still use a separate Newsreader app if you'd like.

Usenet access requires a reader to "read" the newsgroups. Essentially that just lets you get the current updated listing of all the files people have uploaded. On top of the reader, you'll need a way to search the newsgroups for what you want to download. Lots of newsgroup readers will do both functions, reading and searching. The new sites will do all of that in their web-based client. If you want to keep it simple, just choose one that allows you to do everything from their web page.

Like Killer Clown, I use Giganews with their VPN. I use the website nzbmatrix.com to find usenet downloads. It downloads a .nzb file that I then open up in a program called Grabit that goes ahead and downloads the file.

I use that too, but i seem to see a lot errors and the newer versions are clunky and hard to get around in.

My brother uses a VPN (not sure which one) and downloads torrents. Haven't gotten a letter since.

Cox has been a much better ISP than a cable provider.
