Loads. About 33000 I think but it depends on your isp. Who is it and what OS are you using.

What sort of newsgroups are you looking for?

Newsnet groups tend strongly to cater for the weird and the perverted and a significant proportion of the 33,000 mentioned by Amber-Shortie are devoted to porn and some very strange activities that may not be legal.

You could try Yahoo groups click here which have a little bit more control over what goes on in them.

You could also search Google for newsgroup readers which will tel you access to newsgroups not supported by your ISP - at a price.

Be careful with newsnet groups - ensure your anti-virus is fully up-to-date!

Do you mean your news server. If so then I'm sure that there aren't many free ones. How many newsgroups does Blueyonder let you access?

I've used both one-tel and madasafish news servers and I could access about 33,000 groups on each but as -pops- quite rightly says most of the alt binaries are porn.
