NZBPlanet is an automated NZB indexer. It has over 100,000 users. Membership is free, but you can donate and get an improved level of access to the site. The site should look rather familiar to anyone that’s used an NZB site before, but has some enhancements that give users more options than the average Newznab site.
NZBPlanet offers two increased levels of membership. You can go for the VIP membership for $8 or the Platinum membership for $24. These are yearly donations. You can also get a Long Time account, which gives you both the VIP and Platinum features for life for €50.
The VIP membership offers:
- Unlimited NZB downloads
- API access
- RSS feeds
- File password checker
- Access to the VIP forum
- The NZB queue system
- Ad-free site access
- Individual file access from NZBs
- NZB request
- 5,000 API hits
If you upgrade to Platinum membership, you get 20,000 API hits, plus the features in the VIP membership. The Long Time membership offers you the VIP and Platinum features for life for the single payment.
You can pay via credit cards and Bitcoin.
NZBPlanet is a Newznab-based site that has some niceenhancements. It allows you to use a calendar feature that offers a preview of what’s due to bereleased. It also lets you know whether something you’re looking for is on the system already.
The site has more than 2,000,000 releases at present. The reporting features allow you to help get rid of spam. There’s also an IRC channel—irc.nzbs.co.uk—that you can use to chat with other members.
NZBPlanet is fully compatible with Headphones, SABnzbd, Sickbeard, CouchPotato, NZBGet, Calibre, XBMC, Sonarr and NZB360. The higher membership levels, of course, allow you to maximize the use of the site by hitting the API quite a few times each day, certainly enough for the average user.
NZBPlanet is definitely a site to consider for downloading NZBs. The free access lets you explore it enough to see whether or not you want to upgrade. This site has been around since 2012, so it’s among those NZB sites where purchasing a lifetime membership is not likely to prove a waste of money.
The huge number of NZBs also make it attractive. Combine that with improved retention at the higher membership levels and it’s a great resource, and one that doesn’t appear to be going anywhere soon.
