The Best NZB Search Engines For 2019

Usenet search engines are search engines that index, show search results via NZB and help you create NZB files without any human intervention. They are a bit like Google but they specifically search newsgroups.

There is 2 different kinds of Usenet search engines:

Public Usenet search engines - These are classic search engines that index and give you results by key words. No human influence. Just an algorithm to search.

Integrated Usenet Browsers - The best newsreaders will let you search by article or binary name. This practice is called is called integrated search. The best example is Newshosting’s newsreader. You can find and download NZB files in an “all in one” service.

NZB Sites vs USENET Search Engines

The big difference between the two is that NZB Sites contain a catalog of NZB Files that are edited by humans, while Usenet Search engines browse indexes of NZB files in real time. NZB Sites indexe Usenet and provides the nzb files even for obfuscated content that is not found by regular Usenet search engines.


Before you can start downloading from Usenet, you need to pay for Usenet access from a provider.
