You can use a software like Thunderbird. When you launch it for the first time, you will be asked to configure your mail and news settings. By choosing "Newsgroup account", you can set up Thunderbird to fetch your favourite groups.
See also http://csg.trinhall.cam.ac.uk/tips/news/tbird for further reference.

You can also use evolution (program included with default ubuntu install) http://ensode.net/evolution_newsgroups.html
