Additional Products

As mentioned, SnelNL has a streaming newsreader which allows users to play files while they’re downloading. You do not need a subscription with SnelNL to use this software. It is completely free and can be used with any Usenet provider.


SnelNL offers decent Usenet subscriptions to go well with their easy-to-use and convenient newsreader. While their retention rate is not amazing, they are still adequate for most users. Regarding speed, their plans provide a decent amount of speed for unlimited downloads. One significant thing to remember about SneNL is that their streaming newsreader works with other Usenet providers since it’s a free download. You may pair this with services that don’t have a newsreader or providers whose newsreader inclusion may not be that easy to use.
