The Bintube Usenet Reader pretty much has the same features as other well-known and reliable newsreaders and NZB downloaders. While there may be nothing exceptional with this program, it is still definitely easy to install and use, has a clean and simple interface, and has a function that provides convenience and efficiency to users.
Its developers also provide good customer support by having a lot of contact points for users from their email address to feature requests. They also have dedicated pages for FAQs and community topics.
The BinTube Usenet reader is a great addition to the current features BinTube has on its roster. And while BinTube Ultimate comes free when you subscribe to a BinTube Usenet access, you are not limited to just using their Usenet access. This newsreader supports multiple servers and can also be used along with other Usenet providers. With its impressive functions, it can compete head on with the most reliable Usenet clients in the market today. And while its features may be a lot similar with most newsreaders and NZB downloaders, it’s not to say that it performs less than the others.
