    Hey,

    Just purchased access from Astraweb, the price is cheap enough for me to consider using Newsgroups now.

    I don't know much about newsgroups but I just installed GrabIt and I'm downloading stuff right now without problem

    However, I was wondering if there's really a major advantage to have a pay site like newzbin to find content easily?

    I found a post in here with a list of free sites and some looks nice to get movies and TV NZB.

    What does it offer, better search options, more nzb?

    Thx

    I tried it once a while back and wanted my dollar back. There is nothing there you can't easily find elsewhere. I know some people use it b/c they can save searches or create bookmarks, but I don't have a need for any of those "perks".

    http://newzleech.com/ is my best friend for finding NZBs. It's going to have 99.999% of anything you're looking for. On the rarest of occasions that you think something is out there but you don't see it, you can also try http://binsearch.info/.

    My first stop for NZBs is usually FST though.

    Also, I suggest ditching Grabit and trying Alt.Binz. It has far more options. You can grab the latest version off of Usenet.

    That's what I thought, I'm already paying for Usenet so why pay for a search engine.

    I like the subcategories added by rossco in the NZB index , think it wasn't there in the past.

    Getting max speed on old release is so nice

    Use Newsleecher, it's in the NZB section (i upped it) it has fully working super-search (search and it will find, no need to visit search engines ), also, it has auto repair and extract and many other great features.

    Yeah, the auto unRAR and auto repair of Alt.Binz and Newsleecher is a big one-up on Grabit.

    I installed Alt.binz and I like it, the design and functionality.

    I see it can auto-pause par files, I didn't find a way with Grabit, that's nice.

    But you have to pay for it right?

    I got a copy (that was my first choice) but the license isn't working

    You can use Supersearch in Alt.Binz.

    Where did you grab it from? My post in the NZB section if so, it's working for everybody else. I've been using it forever.
