Nzb Tortuga launched in early November 2016 and quickly grew to be one of the top indexing sites.  Indexing almost 600 groups with more than 3 million posts to date and a solid 1000 day retention it’s not surprising Nzb Tortuga is popular.

The unlimited 7 day full trial allows user to fully test there API integration and NZB download from site  before making any dissections to support them.

Over the last year 12 months Nzb Tortuga has had a 95% uptime (see our uptime chart below) and has consistently updated the site throughout. They have added a new theme, phpBB forum integration, movie quality filters and custom user notifications for easy API key access and messages. We are looking forward to seeing what they bring to the Nzb community.
