There's no such thing as a pay newsgroup. If you can't find it, then
you need to contact your ISP and ask them to add it. If your ISP
doesn't carry binary newsgroups, then yes you'll need to spend a few
dollars and join a premium newsgroup provider like Giganews or
somesuch.

thank you! i was recently switched to giganews, and i didn't think to
check again for that previously unavailable to me newsgroup. i just
subscribed, now i just have to figure out how to do all the rest of the
stuff (i've been skipping over those technical posts, doh)

yay!

A lot of ISPs outsource usenet feeds to supernews or giganews.
If your ISP doesn't you can subscribe to either of them.

Some ISPs don't do binary newsgroups. In that case you again
can subscripe directly to (super/giga)news.

Expect to do some additional research. If you are running
Windows try googling grabit, rar, and quickpar. Linux or
Mac users will need to find the analogues to those.

And don't complain when you find out it isn't in English.

Goed geluk,

Bob Schwartz

Hey Heather,
You'll find that the Comcast deal with Giganews has a limit on how much
downloading you're allowed in a month. I think if you go over the limit,
they want to charge you extra, though I have no idea how that'd work. A few
of those things on ABMS might start to add up.
