Usenet Search Engines & NZB Sites

Usenet Search Engines & NZB Sites

It’s all about finding Usenet content. Just because you’ve chosen a good provider with fast speed doesn’t mean your done. You still have to find your topic of initerest. We personally like to set up our newsreader to do the work for us. With the new auto-search features you can as well.

Sometimes you may want to set your Usenet client to keep track of a specific topic and download content as soon as it hits Usenet. In the past that meant a lot of work. Using search and NZB sites. Now you can use software like the Newshosting client or Newsbin to grab content fast.
