Requirements

Note: many archives are RAR format, but there are free software tools that can extract them. Use [https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Unarchiver unar] to extract them.
 
 
    To use nzb you need to have access to a news/nntp (Usenet) server that provides binaries. Your ISP may provide this service to you but you usually need a premium usenet provider. I strongly recommend Giganews which provides a flawless service and a long retention. Especially if you intend to stream data directly Giganews provides both high speeds and complete files.
 
 
 
    Another thing you will need is a Usenet indexing service which provides .nzb files. A well known and good service that provides a Usenet index is Newzbin.
