      Newsgroup help

      Hello everybody!

      I did try searching the forum for an answer to this but had no luck.

      I think Sky supports Newsgroups, but what are the settings I should put in to IE or Firefox?

      Thanks in advance.

      Sky doesn't have a news server. If you want binaries, then I can personally recommend Giganews
      Newsgroups: Giganews USENET News Servers.

      They have just introduced Giganews Accelerator, which enables account holders to download compressed newsgroup headers. The header compression function of the Giganews Accelerator will allow for header download speeds up to 10 times faster than with uncompressed headers, a feature particularly helpful to Giganews users who utilize news reader software which downloads all new headers in a newsgroup every time a newsgroup is accessed (Example: Newsbin).

      I use Giganews' dedicated version of Newsbin Pro and can confirm the above.
