    it's free.
    there is a good bit torrent client program you use to download them.
    Called uTorrent
    , so download that.

    Then you just find bit torrent links, and click them.
    you'd need a good bit torrent search engine

    I don't normally read the computer news sites like digg, anandtech or
    arstechnica or slashdot or anything.. but I did run into http://thepiratebay.org/
    that is a torrent search engine.
    other torrent search engine sites that come uip with a google of
    torrent search are
    http://isohunt.com/ , http://www.torrentscan.com/ ,
    http://www.torrentz.com/

    You can also try P2P apps. (not related to torrents ).
    eMule, maybe limewire.. there are a few. Each may specialise in
    different types of media.

    Torrents tend to be good for big things like tv programs , I think. I
    don't tend to use them much though.


    regarding the newsgroups.. I've used xnews to download binaries it
    supports it, OE or Google Groups doesn't. I don't do it often.
    Apparently these nzb files are a new thing. You need a news reader
    that supports it.

    This website lists some that support it
    (I don't really recognise these names. though i don't tend to use news
    readers much)
    http://www.binaries4all.com/nzb/
    NewsLeecher
    NewsPro (version 3.75 and higher)
    NewsBin Pro (version 4.3 and higher)
    NewsReactor
    GrabIt (1.5.0 and higher)
    Usenet Explorer
    BNR2
    UsenetJunkie
    123Newz

    xana need a plugin.. There is somebody here that says something
    "beats OE and xana hands down" but I have no idea what he refer to.
    Google and archive.org seem to not have it. XanaNews is fantastic,
    dunno about for binary and nzb files though.
