Yes, you have to find an NNTP server that carries comp.lang.python. It's 
possible your Internet service provider runs such a news server and will 
let you access it as a part of your subscription (this is the case for 
me). If not then you'll have to contract with a third party news service 
(some of htese are available for free).

Alternatively, take a look at http://www.gmane.com/, a mailing 
list/newsgroup interface service which I believe offers an NNTP service.
