Newzbin overview:

Newzbin is the reason NZB files exist. The site was the original and deserves the respect they’ve earned from the Usenet community. If you are new to NZB sites then consider Newzbin to be the Google of Usenet newsgroup search. Newzbin volunteers, also known as “Editors” make the site great. Want to keep an eye out for a particular topic? If so check out the watchdog feature. It will email you when a report matches your keywords.

Not to be confused for a Usenet provider or newsreader software. Both of which you will need to download from Usenet. Newzbin will help you find what your looking for across millions of newsgroup posts without downloading headers. Along with the report function, you can also search individual binary files back 240 days.
