Newsbin Review 2020

Last Updated: Mar 02, 2018

A highly popular and powerful newsreader. The built in database and image viewer is a very nice feature, but there are many others. Read our review to find out other ups and downs of this newsreader.


Newsbin is one of the most popular Usenet clients to date. In fact, this is one of the very first Usenet clients created with the exclusive purpose of downloading binaries from Usenet. Newsbin was the first to adopt the NZB file format and consistently leads the way with technical innovations that help to make the Usenet experience easier.

There is a one time charge for the client of $20, but they do have a free 10 day trial so you can check them out. The client is full of features and yet is still remarkably easy to use. The Newsbin client supports SSL, if privacy is a concern, but encryption must be supported by your Usenet provider.

Main Features And Highlights Of Newsbin

  • Built in image database, and a viewer,
  • Automatically processes your RAR and PAR files after download.
  • Download prioritization, and header updates.
  • Supports simultaneous multiple server downloading.

This client is only for the Windows OS, but it comes in both the 32 and 64 bit flavors. Additionally, there aren’t mobile or portable clients.

Newsbin Summary

The client is a great piece of work by the development team. All necessary functions are there, and then a few functions that just makes things easier. There are many options for fine tuning your connection and working with your downloads. The Newsbin client has an integrated search option also that is very cool but can be an additional fee if you.

We really like their one time pricing and think if you are seriously into Usenet $20 for the best newsreader is a no brainer. So stop getting that cracked or pirated copy off of Usenet and support Newsbin today ! They were the first newsreader to support the NZB file format which has really helped to advance Usenet to what it is today.
