Workaround Slow Usenet Propagation with NZBGet


NZBGet is an advanced usenet downloader that has a wide array of options to customize your downloading experience. Some usenet servers propagate more slowly than others meaning that you can be downloading a movie or tv show before it is on your provider’s servers which can result in a failed download. To workaround slow usenet propagation with nzbet there is a special feature.
