Use these alt.binaries search engines or an uncensored Usenet newsgroup list to find the content you are looking for and fast.
Have you heard about all the amazing (crazy?) stuff available on Usenet and want to check it out for yourself? Or maybe you want to compare Usenet newsgroup lists to see what you may be missing?
The best way to do this research is to check a fully uncensored Usenet newsgroup list or an unrestricted alt.binaries search engine. We cover both methods below and provide all the resources you'll need.
However, both the number and type of newsgroups you can access vary for every Usenet provider, especially the alt.binaries newsgroups (the ones containing videos, images, audio and documents).
Many Usenet providers censor the newsgroups you can access. The best way to get maximum access to uncensored newsgroups is to do your research and choose the best Usenet provider (psst, we recommend Newshosting) for what you want to download and enjoy.

Want Access to Uncensored Usenet Newsgroups?
If you like what you see and want to access these newsgroups, especially in the alt.binaries newsgroups, you have a couple of options: the first is free and the second is easy.
Free, but with Some Hassle
Free options that come with some hassle include accessing open news servers (these are news servers made available for the general public’s use) or taking advantage of a generous free trial from a reliable Usenet provider.
We go over both of these free options in our very popular post, Best Free Usenet.
Hassle-Free, but Not Cost-Free
The easiest option (but which isn't free) is to use a premium Usenet provider. This means paying for access to Usenet newsgroups through a service provider.
Keep in mind that not all Usenet services are created equal. Quality and prices can vary greatly, so make sure to inform yourself and check out the best Usenet providers:
