What?! Since when did newzbin.com become an invite-only site. They're a paid membership site, do they not like making money?

I've been a paying member for the last 6 years, seems like such a waste for one person to use, if anyone wants my user/pass, PM me.

Is Newsbin Pro 5 still the best software?

I'm with www.newsrazor.net, I always get full speed.

One other question, why do people pay to use newzbin? It's like paying to use google? Personally I use Nzbmatrix which is much better layed out and much like many others its free! A nice simple to use search engine is Nzbclub.com and its FREE!!!!!

I have 5 invites for newzbin if anyone wants one.

Just to add for software I use Newsbin pro also. Great software with auto download of pars if needed for repair and auto unrar as well.

They have been getting threats of anti-piracy groups so its invite only for the mo.

I've been using newzbin and grabit for the last 4 years and it all works great.

I had Giganews for the first 3 years but switched to Astraweb in the last year. Just as good but costs a lot less.

I never really considered any alternatives for indexing. Which are the best free ones? I might give them a looksie.

Also if anyone needs a newzbin invite then just PM.

Oh and just to mention I'm on UPC also and have never had any major issues. Always maxes out my 20mb line if I let it!

Same here..no problems connection or speed wise on upc. I'm wondering however if they enforce their Fair Usage Policy (warning letter if you d/l over 250 GB a month) with usenet. Or is that just for torrents ?

Usage is usage. It doesn't matter how you download, or what you download. If it ads up to 250GB then you've hit the limit.
