NZBgeek features:

NZBgeek is a community based NZB forum that launched in late 2012 and has a lot of nice features. The site is free to use but you’ll need to register first. As of August 2016 we’re happy to share that registration is still open. You might need an invite in the future.

Sites like NZBgeek are different from automatic engines like Binsearch. They rely on members to drive the quality of the site and in turn build a community around the site. From what we’ve seen so far NZBgeek is working hard to build a good community.

You can use NZBgeek for free with some limitations. The main limitation is that you can only download 2 NZBs every 24 hours. With a premium (VIG) membership you gain unlimited access to the site along with API key and guest invites.

Not to be confused for a Usenet provider or newsreader software. Both of which you will need to download from Usenet. NZBgeek will help you find what your looking for across millions of newsgroup posts without the need for downloading headers.
