...and a damn shame too.

IMHO, there wasn't a better value for newsgroup/usenet access.

There aren't many players left. They've been consolidating down to a couple players and a bunch of resellers who aren't real servers.

There's an interesting story behind that. The real Newzbin was headquartered in the UK and went out some time ago. Maybe 10 years. Someone else grabbed their name and ran a different NZB site. One of the guys who ran original Newzbin commented about this on Reddit.
