With the removal of sky one from Virgin I think it is time i learned how to use torrent or what ever everyone else is using..

basically I need my weekly fix of lost, last weeks and tonights are the only ones I am missing....

Reccomend Newsgroups.

I pay £10/month for unlimited downloads from Newsdemon.com. Just sign up and they provide a program to download the .nzb files (NewsRover).

Once you sign up with that you can use sites like gotnzb.com to find newsgroup files to download using NewsRover. I get apeeds of around 500kb/sec on a 4mb connection.


Or if you want free downloads via torrents download a torrent client, I use UTorrent but theres loads.

Then go to a torrent site(Torrentspy.com is good) and search for files to download through your client, Simple!

yeah i should of given newsgroups a chance ages ago when highlander was telling me about them :(

speeds of newsgroups piss all over torrents, saying that torrents are alright if you can wait a day or two for a dvd film but you can get a film in about 1-2 hours on a newsgroup
