pu--- title: NZB Sources ---
SABnzbd only accepts NZB files as download specifications1.
An NZB file contains a full specification of all Usenet articles that are needed for a download. You can get these files from sites listed below.
SABnzbd does not endorse or require the use of any specific indexer.
They all work with SABnzbd perfectly fine so long as they generate NZBs, none of these sites require specific "SABnzbd integration".
Before paying for an indexer please keep in mind that there are no guarantees and that any site could disappear at any time without notice.
The following sites have further listings for indexers with commentary showing features etc.
Only searching in publicly available headers, but they will not match obfuscated files to the releases they belong to or do any analysis on the files.
|Binsearch||Limited||Only RSS on newsgroup basis|
|findnzb.net||Limited||Newsgroup of post reported as Category|
Indexers analyze each file and match it to known movie, show, music or software releases and provide reports on each NZB.
