I have been looking into the newsgroups for awhile and I found out that my ISP has newsgroup access. They do not limit the download from the newsgroup except for the service DL/UL limits. This is 60GB down a month, but it is not monitored, because I exceed that by far using torrents.
They claim to have thoudands of newsgroups on their servers, but do you think any of them are the groups I will need to access movies, music etc...? My ISP is COX CAble, so if anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate the input. Thought this would be a good route instead of forking over cash to try to figure out the whole newsgroup thing.
