Oznzb Review

August 2016 update: Oznzb has been down for maintenance since July 24th. They have not released any other messages so a lot of user’s assume the site is down for good.

OznzbOznzb highlights:

  • Search the site for NZB’s
  • 250,000 NZBs indexed
  • Private Usenet search site
  • Sickbeard & CouchPotato
  • Download 5 Nzbs a day free
  • Members get up to 10k API calls

Oznzb features:

Oznzb.com is a community based NZB forum that launched in early 2013 and has a lot of nice features for a new project. The site is free to use but you’ll need to register first. As of June 2016 registration is open. You might need an invite in the future.

Sites like Oznzb 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. It’s too early to tell but we wish the Oznzb team the best of luck in building an active group.

You can use the site for free with some limitations. The main limitation is that you can only download 5 NZBs a day. With a premium (VIP) membership you can download up to 100 NZBs a day along with 1,000 API calls and five invites. Step up to a legend (lifetime) membership and grab up to 2,000 NZBs a day along with 10,000 API calls.

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