NZBgeek offers a forum and a Usenet indexer. The site was launched in 2012 through a Newznab indexing application.


NZBgeek is a community-based forum that has a lot of outstanding features. You would have to register first to be able to access the site, and there is no need for invitations. With free access to the site, users have a few limitations, mainly on the number of NZB downloads per day for a period of 3 days. Donations allow members to become VIGs or Very Important Geeks, which gives them full access to all of the site’s features.


Over 500,000 NZBs are indexed on NZBgeek ranging from movies, TV clips, games, audio, books and PC-related downloads. The indexer updates every 10 minutes and has an active chat room that helps build the NZBgeek community.

As a VIG member you get custom searches, language flags, movie trailers, spam filtering, access to popular releases, content requests and much more.

Pricing & Payment Methods

NZBgeek has two main membership levels: Free and VIG. VIG membership can be availed either for 6 months, 1 year, 2 years or a lifetime subscription.
