Best NZB Sites 2020

Here is our list of the most popular and best NZB sites of 2020. Note: you will need a USENET service provider to download NZB files from these sites. We recommend you review our best USENET providers of 2020 list to find the best services at the best prices currently available.

Reminder: In addition to a subscription to an NZB indexer, you will need a Usenet access subscription and a Usenet newsreader. Each of these generally involves a subscription fee and will need to be configured with one another.

Editor’s Note: To save time and money, our #1 recommendation is to subscribe to Easynews for an all-inclusive Usenet solution. It comes with high speed Usenet access with NZBs built into its innovative search interface and newsreader. Easynews also has better Usenet search results (file previews included) than today’s NZB indexers.

Here’s a special Easynews 50 GB free trial for Usenetreviewz.com readers.

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.

Easynews
Pros
  • Best Usenet Search Interface
  • Best Usenet Search Results
  • File Previews
  • Easy to Use
  • Usenet Access Included
Cons

Easynews keeps raising the bar for the Usenet community by combining high-speed Usenet access with a web based, mobile ready newsreader interface.

Just open your preferred web browser to Easynews and you’re all set.

The newsreader’s web interface is well designed and intuitive. Plug in your search, choose a file type from a dropdown menu, then hit enter. All results are displayed cleanly on a single page with infinite scroll. Each result includes a file preview and details like newsgroup, post date and file size.

To be clear, you can use your current newsreader and NZB index with Easynews if that’s your style.

NZBFinder Review
NZBFinder Review
Pros
  • Free: 5 NZBs & 25 API Calls.
  • High Quality Releases
Cons
  • Simple interface

NZBFinder.ws specializes in high-quality audio and video groups. There are several different membership levels at NZBFinder.ws, get started with the free account gives you just enough to see if NZBFinder.ws is for you.

You’ve probably seen the number of releases on NZB Finder increase recently. A lot of very high quality stuff like more REMUX, WEB-DL and complete BluRays have been indexed.

Third Place - Usenet Crawler

Usenet Crawler Review
Usenet Crawler Review
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.

Fourth Place - NZBGeek

NZBGeek Review
NZBGeek Review
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.

Fifth Place - NZBGrabit

NZBGrabit Review
NZBGrabit Review
Pros
  • Since 2012
  • Reward System & Community
Cons
  • No API Integrations

Launched in 2012 Vbulletin based NZBGrabit has made an effort to create a quality NZB site. The forum operators appear to be very motivated in growing their user community and treating them right.

We like the active and friendly community, being able to pay via credit card and finally the good selection of NZB files makes them worth considering. The only possible downside is that NZBGrabit cannot presently be integrated with automation software such as NZBGet or SabNZBD.

Top 5 Invite NZB Sites in Detail

First Place - NZB.su

NZB.su Review
NZB.su Review
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.

Second Place - DogNZB

DogNZB Review
DogNZB Review
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.

Fifth Place - LuluNZB

LuluNZB Review
LuluNZB Review
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.
