I did research it on Google and found several options for various providers some with free trials and a site that rated the various providers. There is also a comprehensive article about on Wikipedia at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usenet. hope this clears up some of the mystery.

google it or look it up at microsoft's site.

I haven’t heard about usenet in several years. When I did I understood
that people had to pay to access it through a provider. I too would be
interested in finding out its current status.

Hello everyone,
First of all, my apologies to the list because this may be off topic,
but I couldn't find a way to sign up for this group, and wasn't sure if
it even existed anymore.
I am interested in learning about Usenet, and had a few questions on how
to get started with it, and didn't know if any of yall used it or not,
so I figured I'd reach out. I would be using my phone to download
content, and the content I'm wanting to download is movies, music, etc.
I did some reading on Google, but figured maybe talking with someone
hands-on would be better for me to grasp how to begin learning.
If you wanna get with me off list, that's totally fine. You can reach me
at hshaneclark@gmail.com <mailto:hshaneclark@gmail.com>.
Thanks in advance for any and all assistance, Shane.
