Thundernews has its Independence Week Special on. 18-month unlimited usenet for $25. Quite a deal.

So, $1.40 per month for a year and a half of unlimited usenet. Usenet is garbage these days since these media firms caught onto it, but it sometimes comes in handy.

Currently, I have a Thundernews account for $4/monthly, so that's $72 for 1.5 years. If I hop on this deal, and cancel my current plan, that's a savings of $47.

Not bad, though Thundernews will probably be $10 monthly by the time my deal runs out. So to ponder if this is worth the risk losing a $4 monthly account.

I wouldn't mind paying a partial premium for Usenet if it was still in it's glory days, but the shape usenet's in, I'm only willing to pay the least amount possible.

Thundernews is a Highwinds reseller... https://www.reddit.com/r/UsenetTa..._highwinds

Same backbone as Astraweb, newsdemon, etc. Don't get this if you have any of those already (unless the deal is a bit better).

Similar boat, don't want to risk losing my $4 no forever plan.

However disagree with you about usefulness. Even though I pay for cable, still easier to manage my shows via Plex. Other stuff as long as your quick
