Thread: Free Usenet News Service Provider

  1. #1
    Hello,

    I was wondering on some advice please. Im rather new to the whole Usenet/Newsgroup thing. I've only discovered it after I found out my ISP here in Australia provides it free as part of their service.

    http://www.internode.on.net/content/...news/index.htm

    I beleive http://www.supernews.net/ is the provider of Usenet to my ISP which then gets handed down to us users.

    Can anyone confirm if this is a good service? After a quick look around it appears most people pay an fee monthly to a Usenet provider to have access?

    If you get the 40 day retention for free and the completion rate is what they say it is, it must be good to get it for free....

    Grab http://www.altbinz.com/ and start downloading

    Thanks for your reply Yeh it seems I can't download anything over 40 days. But I guess thats ok. I've got myself a copy of alt.binz. Have been downloading a fair bit over the last day or so. Still working everything out. I'm just extremely eager to find out how to create nzb's so I can upload my movies for everyone.

    The Supernews website says that single-part binaries have 150 days retention. That would make the service ideal if your main interest was downloading music.

    There is a guide here on how to upload with Powerpost:
    http://www.slyck.com/ng.php?page=8

    When you add files in Powerpost you can click on the checksum tab and select create nzb to get an NZB of what you are uploading.

    sorry, I missed that part earlier. I assume that you are wanting to post NZBs of movies, rather than instructions on how to upload movies to Usenet.

    In your Alt.Binz folder, there is a sub-folder called "NZB" which contains all the NZBs that Alt.Binz self-generates of everything you download using any of Alt.bin's search windows. These are files that have the extension ".nzb"

    Just upload those NZB files in that folder to any NZB sharing site.

    Also, if you go to any NZB generator site like www.binsearch.info , you will create and download NZBs, and these can either be loaded in a binary download app like Alt.Binz, or uploaded to NZB sharing sites.

    Sure is a lot better than my service though my ISP. I only get a retention of about 7 days, so I have to hop on what I want as soon as I see it. Still anything free is good.
    Gee, Brain what do you want to do tonight?
    The same thing we do every night Pinky. Try to take over the world!
