The-Hive.be Review

The-Hive.be is an NZB site but, if you went there without knowing that, you might think it was a forum. The forum layout works quite well for what they offer. This site was formerly located at NZBeez.co.uk. The owner recently announced that he would be giving up the site.

The owner apparently left the site simply because of needing to change his priorities and, of course, running an NZB site is no small undertaking. The site was ported over to The-Hive.be, but retains the same layout and design that it had. People already using the site will not be presented with an entirely new interface to figure out.

What it Offers

The-Hive.be concentrates on games. There aren’t any video or audio NZBs here, so it’s really for the gamers out there who want a good NZB site to support their hobby. There’s plenty of information on various games, including guides that have tutorials and walkthroughs. There is a small section on video, but there aren’t any NZB files included, just information.

There is also a great section on modding that will be of particular interest to those who like to take a good game and make it better. The forums appear to be quite active, so it might be a good place to look if you’re frustrated with the latest games and want an assist in getting the most out of them. There are sections on modding for PS3, Xbox, Android and more.

You’ll have to join up to get any use out of the site. Joining is free, so you can test it out and see if it’s what you’ve been looking for. If you like it, you can help support the site by offering a donation.

Using the Site

If you’ve used forum sites before—who hasn’t, at this point?—you shouldn’t have any trouble figuring out the interface on this site. Searching is similar to searching any other Internet forum and there are plenty of options to make it as easy as possible to do. You can search by the subject or name of the post, you can sort by date and so forth. You can also drill down by limiting your searches to specific categories.

Once you get the hang of searching for NZBs via the forum format, you should find this site very easy to use. It’s really for the gamers out there however, so those who want video or audio content may not find what they’re looking for here.

    you guys REALLY need to update this article, it Doesn’t ” concentrate on games” as you put it, and if there aren’t any video or audio files as you say, i would really like to know where i have been getting all my stuff from. yes the site DID stop mostly everything for a little while, read about 2 months, because of the same problems that plague other sites, ie MPAA and such, but has been going full on for the past 6 months or longer, hence name change. of all the nzb sites that i have visited/used, The-Hive.be would have to be one of the friendliest and easiest sites i have come across. Who am I? I am just a mid 40’s noob who knows SFA about techie type things and everyone at The-Hive.be have helped me alot more than quite a few sites that i see you have reviewed and given higher ratings to. I really suggest that the “editor” visit the site again and see everything that The-Hive.be has to offer for both us noobs and more experienced people. 😀

    The Hive is totally crap now, it went down for about 2 weeks and since coming back online all older posts no longer work, the admin Wolfie isn’t interested in fixing it anymore, after all what is an indexer if you can’t even get a post older than a month now. avoid at all costs
