Question by Jack D: How to use Usenet newsgroup?
How do I search usenet for something without paying for it? If I can find what I am looking for then I will buy the service. What is the official usenet since there seems to be many sites for it like usenet.org usenet.com and usenet.nl?
Answer by Masked Musketeer
There is no “official” usenet.
Those are just usenet providers.

Usenet search engines can be used for free.
But to actually download, you need to sign up to a Usenet provider. Once you are a paying member, go to any Usenet search engine and search for anything you wish to download. You then download a .nzb file (it’s pretty similar to a .torrent file) which is opened using a Usenet client.
I prefer Unzbin, http://www.unzbin.com/ but you can choose what you like.
This is a tutorial to get you started:
The tutorial shows you how to use SabNZB, which IMO is a little harder to use. You can use UnzBin as an alternative.
