I'm using the same thing. I think they are no other servers right now except that one.  :P

Ok then my hours of searching and finding nothing but that 1 was worth it. Thought maybe I wasn't looking in the right spots.  I thought maybe there were 1 or 2 more free ones that limited bandwidth a lot, but I found nothing with movies on it anyways. Thanks for the input here!

Anyway can you share your findings, even the ones that didn't have movies on them?

Well I'm currently downloading a TV show in HDTV/x264 from 2 free news servers:
- reader.ipv6.xsnews.nl:119: 8 connections
- newszilla6.xs4all.nl:119: 3 connections

So do check xsnews.nl.
I don't know if you have to register with them, though?...
But if you do, it's free.

Ok, posted at their forum in http://forum.xsnews.nl/ .
Used google translate because it's in Dutch but there were a couple of guys that answered in English.
http://forum.xsnews.nl/viewtopic.php?p=19485#p19485
They say that sometimes it is open for subscription of free IPv6 accounts.
You can ask for a free account putting your email address in http://www.xsnews.com/ipv6/ipv6_aanvraag.php .
Cross your fingers and hope they have vacant accounts.
Please acknowledge that speeds haven't been terrific lately.
I can pull from them at 150kbps with up to 8 connections.
I think the original poster could (or should) edit his post to include this info in order to make it available to a wider audience.
Cheers

I can easily max out my cable internet connection with xsnews and xs4all. This is at 2.5MB/s.

Do note that with Teredo, I'll see about 700KB/s-1400KB/s using both servers. By using Hurricane Electric (I've got a relay about 20 miles away), I can max out easily.

I haven't ever tried HE on campus though, but I will someday to see how fast I can actually get to xsnews and xs4all (I get 100mbps or roughly 12MB/s on campus).

Ever since I added xsnews to my list of servers to download from I get many errors with files that don't work until I delete them and re-download without the xsnews server in my list. (ipv6 tunnel) Would like 2 know if any1 else is also having these issues.

Check your IPv6 connection; reader.ipv6.xsnews.nl is OK for me.

You can your IPv6 connectivity by trying these URLs:

www.whatismyipv6.com: http://[2001:470:a02c::90]/
ipv6.google.com: http://[2a00:1450:8001::69]/

Yes, it's been down for me for the last month or so.
As of Jan 29 2010 eweka's (free) ipv6 access to their newsservers has been discontinued.

See:
