OMGWTFNZBS doesn’t offer a free public membership. If you want to get access to the site, you’ll have to pay and they only accept Bitcoin. The site has around 5,000 members at last count.
The basic membership plan is $10 per year, payable in Bitcoin. This is the only way you can join OMGWTFNZBS.
The paid membership definitely comes with advantages. You don’t have to deal with advertisements on the site, making it a less cluttered interface. VIP members also get to download as much as they want.
Other advantages include:
- Release watcher
- RSS integration
- Advanced filters
- Adult content
- Sickbeard, NZBDrone and CouchPotato
The membership can take as long as twenty-four hours to be processed. When we signed up, however, the process was instant, so the delay clearly isn’t a factor in all cases. If you want to get more details on the site, you can check out irc.servercentral.net, on EFNET, to chat.
This site isn’t Newznab based. It’s faster than Newznab sites, and that’s really its most significant selling point. New releases show up quickly on the indexes. If you find yourself refreshing your NZB searches over and over again waiting for a recent release to show up, OMGWTFNZBS might be a good option for you.
The releases are added to the index by users. While this might seem advantageous at first blush, there are some accuracy issues involved. Essentially, you might get access to new releases more quickly than you would from other indexers, but you won’t’ have the type of accuracy you’d expect from a Newznab site.
OMGWTFNZBS requires that you buy a membership; there aren’t any free options. This site isn’t Newznab based and it tends to get new releases very quickly, at something of an expense where accuracy is concerned.
OMGWTFNZBS might be a good option if you’re really keen to get the newest releases as fast as possible. If you’re a stickler for accuracy—or you have a transfer limit on your USENET account—you might not tolerate getting a wrong binary now and then. However, if you just want releases and want them fast, OMGWTFNZBS might be a good choice for you.
