You need 3 things:
An account with newsgroup server (Astraweb, Giganet are popular or your ISP may give good access to newsgroups)
An indexing site (like newzbin, that allows easy search as you would a torrent site)
A newsreader (like grabit for downloading).
You'll generally pay for each service, although Grabit is free and some indexing sites allow free searching for stuff that has been posted in last 21 days(ish).
