Couchpotato and Sickbeard users will need an indexer that offers an API key, which mostly require registration and sometimes a paid account.
NZB indexes are used to find files or parts of files on the Usenet and subsequently download them using a newsreader app.
holds to a no-log and no tracking policy to protect users’ privacy.When search results are returned, users can read the files if they’ve been included and view image previews.If you prefer to browse rather than search, look elsewhere. To use the API, you’ll need a premium subscription.They start at per year, so it’s not a huge commitment. NZB Club is a freemium indexer with a simple, no registration free service as well as a paid service that allows users to opt for an HTTPS encrypted version of the site (note Binsearch and NZBIndex use HTTPS by default).NZBIndex‘s design is more pleasing to the eye than Binsearch, but the functionality is more or less the same.
It doesn’t limit searches to the most popular newsgroups by default, so we often ended up with more results than we got from Binsearch.
An advanced search allows you to limit the age, size, poster, and groups, and filter out incomplete releases and posts without files.
The most popular binary groups are listed with checkboxes, so you don’t have to memorize the spelling of each one you want to search.
NZB Club didn’t return as many results as NZBIndex and Binsearch in our tests, and its advanced search function wasn’t as robust.
Notably missing is the option to limit searches to complete collections, which means you might spend a lot of time sifting through parts of files.
Search results have a few advertisements littered among them, but they are obvious and easy to avoid. NFO files can be viewed in browser before downloading.
