Recent press releases announce that tier 1 provider Newshosting has partnered with Easynews to offer a very easy Usenet solution. If you haven’t heard of Easynews ( and I have no idea why that would be as they have been around forever) – they offer an easy way to browse Usenet. Easynews is particularly useful if you like to look at the alt.pictures newsgroups or if you just like the ability to quickly scan various Usenet newsgroups to see whats going on. They have a thumbnail gallery format which is pretty slick.
In addition, to these notable Usenet enhancements, Easynews has their own membership community. Easy is definitely worth checking out especially in two cases — you are new to Usenet and/or you like to graphically browse through newsgroups. Their service is a big enhancement over the normal Usenet experience. So check it out if you are curious they have a 14 day / 10 GB refund policy so hassle to cancel.
If you have tried Easynews before, its worth a look again because that have been working on redoing their portal experience in the last half of 2010.
Anyways, if you are a XL Powerpack subscriber for Newshosting – this is their top tier – you will know be able to access 10 GB of Easynews web-based Usenet content. Highly recommend to check out XL powerpack if you are interested in Easynews.
