Best Usenet deals 2019 for block plans

Block accounts have multiple purposes. They're not supposed to be used as the primary method of downloading but as a backup:

  1. People use block accounts to try to get articles that fail to download from the main account.

  2. Your main unlimited has a shorter retention period and you want a backup in case you need to go back further.

Best block Usenet deals from different backbones are listed here. As more Usenet block deals are announced, we will add them here and update this page. In any case, if you still want to go ahead with the block account, you want one from a different backbone than your main account.
