Found 1st Jun 2013
Usenet - One of the oldest services on the Internet. However it's still a great place to download from directly. No sharing just straight downloading.

Usenet.nl are offering 300GB+ free on a 14 day trial >

Usenet.nl offers 14 days of free access to Usenet* with a download volume of more than 300 GB. Your test package includes:

5 GB high-speed download volume
Unlimited download with up to 2,000 kbit/s (more than 300 GB in two weeks)
Free newsreader software: integrated search function, preview and 1-click download
Connection to 5 server farms with up to 16 simultaneous connections

I'm stating this deal requires a CREDIT CARD which must be CANCELLED before the trial ends, otherwise you will be charged a monthly plan. See below :

*During the trial period, you can choose from two different pricing models. If you do not choose a package and do not cancel, your membership will be automatically extended to Usenet Relax at € 8.33 per month (12 month term – Total of 99.96 €).

Read the description carefully please. This is a great deal if you just want the free downloads. However you must remember to CANCEL before the trial ends otherwise you will go on to a yearly plan. Hope some of you out there can make use of it. Set up a Calendar reminder to cancel and leech away

rem the first rule of usenet, we dont talk about usenet

great deal for someone who's wanting to download 300GB or near that in a few days

Too risky. You could easily forget. Besides, it's not even particularly cheap. There are others cheaper.

Yeah I understand that. I've made it clear what you're getting in to from the description, there are other providers. I use Astraweb, this is about taking advantage of a free amount of direct data downloading. If you're liable to forget then don't take the 'risk'. The risk is only about forgetting to cancel and that is something you can control. It's a controllable risk and it's not common you get that sort of risk

Sure, but if my post makes people extra vigilant then it's all good.

I apologise for being a noob, but what exactly is usenet used for? I tried google, and the technical stuff just went over my head

USENET was devised in 1979, and is a serious of newsgroups on various subjects, essentially an email bulletin board system, later when binary groups were invented, people started to use various newsgroups to upload data, for a long time now you are able to get the latest movies, games, cds via newsgroups.

Anyway you don't have to use Usenet for piracy you can use it to get your favourite TV shows, again there can be legal ramifications to that too.

Thank-You, I was hoping it was something to make my internet download speed a lot higher

It's a dark art usenet or commonly called newsgroups

I know ppl who be used Internet fit years and can't handle newsgroups

But they are the holy grail, you usually get a full speed of download if the file exists

I haven't used a newsreader in years. Does anyone still make them? Xnews was the last reader I used but since then most of the apps I started seeing where only aimed at binary downloaders and I used to like Usenet for text posting.

You don't need newsreaders in the traditional sense, that's not how people use it now, if they're downloading. They'll use NZB files and apps such as http://sabnzbd.org/

I expected this deal to bomb, but true to the nature of this site, I still wanted to offer the people who can make use of it the chance.

I've used Newsbin Pro for about 10 years. One click to download the NZB file and it's done.
