Best NZB Site List


Here is  our list of the most popular and best NZB sites.  Note:  you will need a USENET service provider to download NZB files from these sites. We recommend you review our best USENET providers of 2018  list to find the best services at the best prices currently available.

Please also note that we make a distinction between NZB sites and USENET search engines. NZB sites contain NZB files curated to some degree by humans. Usenet search engines, however, have little to no filters and are, by definition, search engines. NZB sites will typically give you better results.

We suggest bookmarking this page or signing up to our mailing list as this page is updated monthly.

3rd place - Usenet Crawler

Usenet Crawler
Usenet Crawler Review nzb site

Pros

  • Best Free NZB Site
  • 1000 NZBs & 10,000 Calls Free

Cons

  • Occasionally Downtime

Usenet-Crawler has been on the scene for a long time now (2012) and has done the USENET community a great service by consistently offering the Best Free account for any NZB sites. Many NZB site owners temporarily offer free VIP membership only to drastically reduce the free user capabilities once they reach a certain number of users.

Not so with Usenet-Crawler, they have been in it for the long haul. While they may suffer occasional downtime, the site owner is consistently working to give USENET users access to free NZB files and there is little pressure to join especially if you are an occasional USENET user.

4th place - Nzbplanet

Nzbplanet
Nzbplanet Review nzb site

Pros

  • 5 NZBs for Free Daily
  • Bitcoin and Credit for VIP

Cons

  • Limited Free Account

NZBPlanet has been around and online since 2012 and traditionally NZBPlanet has had a good selection of NZB files along with a rapid server. The free account is somewhat limited with 200 days of NZB retention and 5 downloads per day however you still get a good idea of how NZBPlanet looks and works via the free account

NZBPlanet typically has had a pretty decent selection of NZB files one plus is being able to pay for their VIP level service via credit card. Otherwise Bitcoin is possible. Also at $10/year, VIP is not extravagantly priced and can give you 5,000 API Calls & Unlimited NZBs.

5th place - NZBGeek

NZBGeek
NZBGeek Review nzb site

Pros

  • Nice Community
  • Quality NZB Files

Cons

  • No Free Account

NZBGeek is separated into a bulletin board and an USENET indexer. They have been around since 2012 and they have a friendly community. They have a limited free plan plus various other membership levels. NZBGeek users seem to be happy with the community based on our comments.

NZBGeek isn’t trying to be the biggest NZB indexer out there however it does have some very nice features and the people behind it seem to be genuinely interested in constantly improving what they have. $12/year for VIP. The site provides value for the money in both the forums and the indexer.

Top 5 Invite NZB Sites in Detail


1st place - DogNZB

DogNZB
DogNZB Review nzb site

Pros

  • Lots of Features
  • Good Quality and Good Uptime

Cons

  • No Free Account

Online since 2013, DogNZB has been a top NZBsite for several years now. They have a very reputation so now they have done invite only. If you can get an invite you now will need to pay at least $20 for the year or $50 for 3 years.

Although they charge $20/year, they maybe be worth it as they have some nice custom features such as Trackt integration, Remote push service, Custom RSS searches, Remote and Mobile notification.

2nd place - NZB.su

NZB.su
NZB.su Review nzb site

Pros

  • Various API Integrations
  • Good Selection and Uptime

Cons

  • Invite Only

NZB.su has been around since 2012. NZB.su currently accepts new members, requiring nothing more than a sign-up to get a free-level user account. Paid accounts aren’t expensive relative to other sites, but do have NZB grab and API hit limits. Those limits, however, are very generous.

Their indexes can be searched and browsed easily, and the site makes it simple to find what you want by including plenty of filters on the search. RSS integration, API integration and other features make membership a great deal.

Read Review


3rd place - NZBs.org

NZBs.org
NZBs.org Review nzb site

Pros

  • Popular Invite Only
  • Good Selection with API

Cons

  • Difficult to get Invite

Nzbs.org is one of the older and more popular NZB indexing sites. The only problem is that membership is closed and getting an invite is difficult.  Nzbs.org runs on the Newznab platform.

The site has a good reputation, however, so it’s likely worth joining if someone sends you an invite and you want a Newznab-based indexer.

4th place - LuluNZB

LuluNZB
LuluNZB Review nzb site

Pros

  • Newznab Indexer
  • Quality NZBs

Cons

  • Difficult Invite

LuLuNZB is about as closed off as NZB sites get but, if you can get an invite, that’s sometimes a good thing as far as keeping the site up and running, if in a restricted fashion.

The site has no known plans to open up registration, but you might try your luck on forums and other gathering places for NZB downloaders to see if you can get an invite.

5th place - Oznzb

Oznzb
Oznzb Review nzb site

Pros

  • Good Quality and uptime
  • Big collection of NZB

Cons

  • Registration required

OzNZB a hybrid Newznab/ Vbulletin site is currently open for registration. Anyone can register however free users are limited to 5 downloads a day. OzNZB developers have contributed to the programming of popular newsreader SABnzbd. NZBs files from over 150 USENET groups are updated every 10 minutes so that you get access to the latest binary files. OzNZB has some additional interesting features such as an integrated IRC chat and a well integrated PHPbb forum for discussion.

Australian hosted OzNZB is definitely one NZB site to put on your shortlist.  They have a friendly community, many NZB files and a good level of participation as many users review and vote on releases. The latest sever specs we have for OzNZB are as follows : Dedicated hardware, with 8 CPUs, 32GB of ram and 800GB of storage
