Bintube Discounted pricing
Bintube already comes with a pretty good pricing when you signup for the monthly plan ( 11/month). Its $60 otherwise for the newsreader – which is a bit over the top considering Newsbin ( another Top Newsreader is $15 for a one time lifetime signup )
Bintube Free Trial
Bintube does not have a free trial for their Usenet service. They do have a free trial for their Usenet newsreader however.
Bintube Plan / Price Offerings
Bintube only plan offering is their $11 / month unlimited Usenet plan. Not a bad price but their are better deals namely – Astraweb ($8 month for yearly), UsenetServer ($7.95 month for yearly) and Easynews ( $9.99 / month)

Bintube Technical Notes
Bintube’s main selling point is that their newsreader can immediately stream the files that you download from Usenet. If you don’t want to wait a few minutes to download files then you may like Bintube’s reader.
However at $60 for their newsreader its too expensive in our opinion.
Bintube Quality of Service
Bintube offers a quality service from what we can tell. They have a pretty good reputation and while not a top tier provider they have decent service.
Bintube Customer Service
Bintube has an online helpdesk so responses shouldn’t take too long.
We like their newsreader and as mentioned they aren’t our top choice but nonetheless they aren’t a bad choice. So check them out or check out a provider from our best usenet service list.
