Downloading tutorial (short version)
Downloading is easy compared to bittorrent or file hosting sites. There is no ratio or port forwarding. There are no porn popups or captchas.

Get a block account at a Usenet provider like Vipernews or one of the others. If you plan to download a lot, a regular account (not a block) may cost less.
Register on If you want to download many gigs, become a VIP member by donating to the site or become an Uploader.
Install and configure SABnzb (for Win7 use the standalone (portable) version).
In the Attached Files box, click on the file ending with .nzb for the gig and file format you want, and save it to your SABnzb "watch" folder.
SABnzb will do the rest, downloading, checking, and unpacking the archive. The process is quick. Most FLAC shows take 5 to 10 minutes. MP3 2 to 3 minutes.
Go to your SABnzb "download" folder and there's the gig in its own folder.
