Usenet Network

Usenet is a decentralized network, it works by each Usenet server sharing its information with all the other servers on the network. This propagation across servers makes Usenet an ideal place for storing information and data of all types. If a server is damaged (Message-IDs missing), the article can still exists on every other server in the network.

Usenet-Crawler is our choice for Best NZB Index Sites 2017

Usenet-Crawler is an NewzNab based NZB indexing site. Newznab is great for automated pulls through Sickbeard, Couchpotato, etc.

I'm using Usenet-crawler now for several years and Spotweb is a real plus. In my experience Spotweb is the best Usenet-Crawler alternative.

* 50 Downloads / 50 API calls

Spotweb is a Web-based usenet binary resource indexer based on the protocol and development done by Spotnet.

Spotweb is great and a supplemental source of interesting NZBs (music, ebooks, porn, movies, etc). Thanks to the strong community, you can read and reply to comments concerning a certain release. The comments for the content tend to be non-english but the content is mostly in english and categorized in english (at least in the english filter set I use)

If you prefer using an application instead of site, check out Spotnet 2.0
