How to Download From the USENET

The USENET often instills a bit of fear into a new user but it really is not as daunting as it first seems. You should approach the USENET as a hybrid between email and a forum discussion group. It has been around for many years now and is actually older then the internet itself. Today, the USENET has evolved into a popular method of discussing topics and for exchanging binary files online.

One of the primary pieces of knowledge you will need if you are interacting with the USENET is how to download files. It is not quite as simple as point and click like the internet allows, as you do need some technical knowledge. The reason for this is the USENET was not actually designed with file transfer in mind. Do not be nervous about the fact that it is not a simple point and click to enable download, it takes just a few minutes to learn how to download from the USENET and when you do pick up this knowledge you are then able to download files faster and more securely than before.

Your first step is to learn about the files that you will be downloading, these being NZB files. These are specific to the USENET and will contain the information or media you want to download. Firstly, you would search for the file you are looking for. As an example, we can search for ‘independence Day’ on

We type in the name and the search parameters in the boxes and search. We get plenty of results back that include the movie. To download, we simply tick the box and select create NZB at the top. This will then save the file onto your computer. You also need to get a USENET client, as a NZB file is useless without one. The client will allow you to open the file once you have it. You also need a USENET account as this will allow you to download the file. Once you are all set up, then you are ready to go. You can search for everything and anything on the USENET and will no doubt come back with hundreds of results. 

To make the process as easy as possible, you should opt for a paying premium service. It really is worth learning and paying the small amount of money to get access to the USENET for all the use that you will get out of it. Once you have downloaded a couple of times, you will be able to fly through the process and will soon wonder how you ever managed without USENET file downloads!
