Great retention, very large library.
Easy to use, lots of filters
Donations gladly accepted.

NZBid id one of the sites that have popped up recently to fill the shoes of some of those that have been taken down in recent months. Presently they have over 2 million NZBs indexed across at least 200 of the most popular newsgroups. While they concentrate mainly on the newest NZBs, they do keep pushing their retention rate back farther and farther and backfilling their index.

NZBid Features

This Newsnab website has the standard Newsnab features along with a lot of categories. There is a simple search, and the newest releases are presented on their front page. Here are a few of the bigger highlights of the site:

  • 2 million + NZBs indexed across 200+ newsgroups.
  • Registration is open to the public.
  • All accounts are free, (though it is not ad supported.)
  • File descriptions to help the downloader determine if the file is the correct file.
  • Support via email, no forum, though there are plans for one in the near future.
  • API and RSS supported. 

NZBid Memberships

Presently there is only one level of membership to NZBid – free. And though there is a limit of 1,000 API, or RSS requests per day, there isn’t a downloading limit. The site admins claims also that SABnzbd is their downloader of choice.

NZBid Public Access NZB Indexes

With plans to upgrade the hardware in the near future, the developers claim that they fail to understand the logic of an NZB search index going to “invitation only” status. The time and effort put into a site this comprehensive makes them wonder why any site’s admin would want to hide it. Ergo, the site will probably always be accessible by the general public. They also maintain that the site is ad free, and will remain so as long as financially feasible.
