I signed up six months back before they changed to Netherlands only. Luckily I paid for 2 years of service and was switched to a USA server : )

It seems to be depending on your ISP, from where I am I was able to logon to the original Hitnews page ... and renew for 6 months  ;D (lets see how it goes), but from the office, when I tried to login, I ended up on Xennews ...

Dear dacaid,

It's been a while since we've sent an email but don't worry, we've really
been busy!
We want to be different from other providers and now we have this unique
and permanent offer!

Nighttime Accounts
These new, unique accounts are valid from 0:00 midnight until 12:00 in the
afternoon.
During these hours you get everything we offer with our standard
accounts:
- Speed up to 30Mbit/sec
- 8 connections

Outside these hours the accounts stay active but the speed will be
throttled to 1 Mbit/sec. This means you don't have to wait for your account
to become active, the speed will automatically increase at midnight.

We will offer the nighttime-accounts at these permanent low prices:
Nighttime Account - 1 Month - EUR 4,75
Nighttime Account - 1 Year - EUR 52,50

We hope you will enjoy these new hitnews-accounts.

If you have any questions, remarks or suggestions please email us at
support@support.hitnews.eu

Best regards,

Hitnews.EU

Quite a good idea... i dont know if this offer is NL only

I got this email too ... not in NL but it seems that I am not yet seen as "International customer"  ;D

but then there was this Xennews story and I forgot about it  :-\
They are probably trying to balance their traffic, good idea ...

yes hitnews (well Xennews should i say) it now (in usd) $17 a month and is no longer the best price and newshosting.com is probably one of the best now @ $15 but there are LOADS at $15

i want my $10 usenet back :(

Before being able to extend my subscription, I asked a question to Astraweb and the response was professional and their €11 package (limited offer) per month seems interesting ... my 2c

Allow me to join you happily in the hijacking of this thread by pointing out that the Astraweb offer is actually $11 (dollars) only ... if you're feeling in a supportive mood, why not click on the ad @ Newzleech.com and support the site we get so much from for free. That's what I did.  :)

Hello all,
Depending of your ISP you are or are not redirected to XenNews ...
If your provider owns a "direct line" to netherlands you can still use the original Hitnews. My ISP is Free.fr, and it works fine.
But if I connect thru Orange, redirected, and no connection to the servers :)
So ... the best way to know is to try to connect to hitnews.eu : if you are redirected, forget it. If not, you can subscribe and enjoy !

I'm in Canada and can access hitnews both via HTTP and NNTP, probably depends on if your ISP has the same peers as they do.
