Usenet Network

Usenet is a decentralized network, it works by each Usenet server sharing its information with all the other servers on the network. This propagation across servers makes Usenet an ideal place for storing information and data of all types. If a server is damaged (Message-IDs missing), the article can still exists on every other server in the network.

Usenet-Crawler is our choice for Best NZB Index Sites 2017

Usenet-Crawler is an NewzNab based NZB indexing site. Newznab is great for automated pulls through Sickbeard, Couchpotato, etc.

I'm using Usenet-crawler now for several years and Spotweb is a real plus. In my experience Spotweb is the best Usenet-Crawler alternative.

Ale accounts:

Binsearch

Public (no registration)

Search Engine

Search Engine

Free

Spotweb is a Dutch system. My favourite programme from Spotweb is Spotnet 2.0. The interface is great, translated into English, and you can search for films by category or thanks to a search engine. Users post a Spot including a SPOT file to download, an explanatory image and a description of the file.

If you combine Eweka with the Spotnet protocol, you are all set. It’s the easiest and most efficient way to download about anything.
