This Section
Wikipeida: "A newsreader is an application program that reads articles on Usenet (generally known as newsgroup), either directly from the news server's disks or via the Network News Transfer Protocol (NNTP).

There are several different types of newsreaders, depending on the type of service the user needs whether intended primarily for discussion or for downloading files posted to the alt.binaries hierarchy. Although Usenet originally started as a message board without any file attachment ability, many Usenet users today do not participate in NNTP discussion groups and only use Newsgroups for downloading files such as music, movies, software and games."
