This list is updated weekly! Bookmark us, follow us on twitter or signup to our email list.
Its worth mentioning that Newzbin (another popular NZB site again also closed) was responsible for the creation and promotion of the NZB file format which has helped to streamline the process of sharing files on Usenet. Newzbin is not to be confused with Newsbin which is a newsreader and not an NZB aggregation service.
For more about NZB files and Usenet downloading you could take a look at our tutorial series on how to download from Usenet.
Essentially you would need just three things. (You don’t need to know the internal details about an NZB file.)
