Sounds like it needs a NAS or a file server.

Do you still need a VPN/proxy to download copyrighted content from newsgroups?

never had that need for it. i just ensure that i'm connecting to a ssl server

been using newsgroups for the +5 years and haven't had any issues. only major downside is that you have to pay for access to a quality server. totally worth the money in my opinion as i also use it for music and programs

once you have it all automated, it's great. mine is set to search the internet every 30 minutes for television shows and every hour for movies. once the content has been downloaded, i get an email notification my phone telling it's done

Sign up with a usenet server that provides SSL encryption with your monthly service and you're golden.

I have mine configured on my desktop so Sonarr searches for my queued up TV shows every 15 minutes. Sonarr automatically downloads the TV show's .nzb file (equivalent to .torrent file) once the show is released and has reached my usenet server. Once Sonarr downloads the .nzb file, it automatically sends it over to SABnzbd, where it downloads the actual file. I also have it configured so that all my TV shows automatically unrar (if needed) and get moved onto my multimedia drive where the TV shows are organized by name and season.

The "hardest" part about all of this is the initial setup of linking both programs to each other and adding in the TV shows you want. Everything else after that is 100% automated. You can come home after being away on a month long vacation and Sonarr will automatically find which episodes you're missing and create a backlog and download all of them.

Yeah, you need to pay a monthly fee for access to a quality usenet server, but you're probably paying for a VPN if you're using torrents anyways. I'd rather be able to max out my encrypted internet connection then deal with fluctuating torrent speeds and the need to upload to save my ratio. Fuck that shit

I would have ditched Astraweb a long time ago if they hadn't screwed up their billing and stopped charging me for service since 2010.

As I understand, Usenet is only good for new media content. How is it for older shows/movies? like 90's stuff?

Also, which usenet services do you guys recommend?

That's definitely true. It's all dependent on your providers retention. Most of the major ones are claiming about 1000 days retention.

It might not be so good for older stuff unless it's pretty mainstream.

1000 days retention is low. I'm on Supernews and their binary retention is 2357 days. That's almost 6.5 years of file retention provided it hasn't been DMCA'd

Was on Telus for 2 year internet/TV bundle.

Called to cancel, letting them know I only need internet. They offered Internet 25 @ $30/month x 3 months. I've called in every 3 months for the last year to renew the same deal until today.

They were unable to continue at $30/month but offered $40/month for 3 months. It was reasonable given all the rates have increased.

Will be looking into Teksavvy after these 3 months.

Although this screams of a sales person, you should really post the deals instead of making such a general post.

To get what? $5 off for every service I have? $15 off a $200 cable bill.... if it was a tip, that would be 7% and the serving staff would be shitting bricks as to how cheap the diner was.
