NewsgroupDirect 2 Terabyte Block Sale

NewsgroupDirect is currently celebrating a great start to the new year with a special on 2 terabyte blocks.  Their latest deal comes in the shape of a huge block account.  The largest we’ve seen offered in quite some time.  Through January 29th NewsgroupDirect is offering 2 TB of Usenet access for $70.  Since NGD blocks are non-expiring you can use the account until it is depleted.  Visit the NGD Deal of the Week page to sign up.

NGD block sale

I normally recommend block accounts for backup and fills.  To fill missing content I would suggest a European Usenet provider.  A 2 terabyte block is huge.  Most Usenet fans could use it as their primary account for months.  Remember that NGD blocks are non-expiring.  At less than 4 cents a gig the price is great.  NGD block users enjoy high retention along with 50 SSL connections.  Remember to sign up before January 29th to save.

The 2 terabyte promotion is also open to existing members.  If you already have a NewsgroupDirect account then you’ll want to log into their website and click on add block.  From there you can add a 2 TB block for the $70 discounted price instead of the $150 regular price.  We’d also like to mention that NGD block accounts are shareable.  Since you are buying a block of Usenet access they don’t mind you sharing the account.

NewsgroupDirect February Block Sale

In the past we’ve shared NewsgroupDirect’s Terabyte Tuesday promotions.  This time around an even better special is running for a few days.  With 2 TB block Usenet accounts on sale for just $65.  A savings of $135 off the normal $200 price.  NGD blocks are non-expiring so you can enjoy the 2 TB block until it’s all used up.  Simply visit NGD to sign up.  Make sure to do it by midnight on February 16th to take advantage of the offer.

NGE February Block Sale

NewsgroupDirect typically sells their 2 TB blocks for $200.  During their February Block Sale you can save $135 which is 67% off the normal price.  Block accounts from NGD are non-expiring so you can use the 2 TB block until it’s depleted.  NewsgroupDirect has news servers in the United States and Europe.  With support for SSL and up to 50 simultaneous connections allowed.  The offer is open to new and existing members.

How do block Usenet accounts work?

  • Blocks are different than unlimited accounts.  Most users are very familiar with unlimited plans meaning you can use the service as much as you want for a given monthly fee.  Blocks are different.  You are only billed once and receive a “block” of Usenet downloads.  In this case 2 TB of access to NewsgroupDirect.  Rather than being charged monthly you can enjoy the block until all 2 TB is used up.

Need more than one 2 TB block?  Strong!  If so NewsgroupDirect will let you pick up multiple blocks during the deal.  We use a block account for fills and backup purposes.  Our block is much smaller though.  You will also receive a discount offer from GhostPath which provides personal VPN access around the world.

NewsgroupDirect Blocktoberfest Sale

NewsgroupDirect is celebrating October with a big sale on Usenet blocks.  We normally share their Terabyte Tuesday offer which includes savings on 1 TB blocks.  This month NGD is extending their Blocktoberfest special to include deep discounts on even larger blocks.  You can grab a 2 TB block for just $60 during the sale.  To take advantage of the offer visit newsgroupdirect.com and sign up for a 2 GB block by Nov. 5th.

NewsgroupDirect Blocktoberfest

The NewsgroupDirect Blocktoberfest promotion is great for those who need a large block account for fills or as a backup.  That’s a lot of fills but for $60 the block is $140 off the normal $200 price.  That’s 70% off the regular NGD price for 2 terabytes of non-expiring Usenet downloads.  Remember the sale will end on November 5th so you have some time to decide but don’t wait past that date.

We’ve had a few visitors ask if it’s best to wait for this year’s Black Friday deals.  I guess it really depends.  If you want access now then I wouldn’t wait.  If you already have Usenet access and are just shopping around then Black Friday has had some great deals in years past.  It really depends on tour needs.  Right now Usenet is very reasonably priced so I don’t think you can really go wrong either way.

Here’s a summary of the NewsgroupDirect Blocktoberfest pricing:

  • 2 TB block – $60 (normally $200)

The 2 terabyte block is really large.  If you’re looking for something smaller I would either go with a different size block from NGD or wait until their next Terabyte Tuesday promotion.  Those seeking a large block will want to make sure to sign up by 11:59 PM EST on November 5th to take advantage of the offer.

NewsgroupDirect October Terabyte Tuesday

NewsgroupDirect is once again offering their popular Terabyte Tuesday promotion.  Allowing new and existing members to purchase a 1 GB Usenet block for 65% off.  As with all NGD blocks, the 1 GB block is non-expiring.  Meaning you pay $35 rather than $100 for a gig of Usenet downloads.  To be used anytime.  That’s a very good price at just 3.5 cents a gig.  This month’s promotion will run for two days.  Sign up before 12 AM EST on October 15th to take advantage of the Terabyte Tuesday promotion.

NewsgroupDirect Usenet blocks are a great option for infrequent Usenet use and as a backup or fill account.  We’re especially fond of non-expiring block accounts like the ones offered by NGD.  Some other leading Usenet providers have them as well but not for $35 a TB.  That’s an excellent price considering it works our to just 3.5 cents a gig.  NGD block customers enjoy over 2,250 days of binary retention along with 50 connections and free SSL encryption.  Sign up before 12 AM EST on Oct. 15th via the NGD Terabyte Tuesday page and enjoy!

—————

Here the description of the Terabyte Tuesday offer directly from the NGD blog post:

The sale runs from 12 AM EST on October 14 until 11:59 PM EST on October 15. No sale prices will be honored after the sale expires. The sale price is available to both new and existing customers. Sale only applies to 1 Terabyte (1000 Gigabyte) accounts. You are free to purchase multiple 1 TB blocks if you choose. Coupons (new or existing) do not apply to special rates on Terabyte Tuesday. All blocks receive a 10% allowance for headers, so a 1 TB purchase will actually give you 1.1 TB, or 1,100 GB.
