Newshosting Newsreader Revisited: A NZBmatrix Alternative

With the recent shutdown of top NZB Search Engines, users have been struggling for a place to find their NZBs. However, if you are a Newshosting subscriber, there is a great alternative for you, especially if you don’t have another site to turn to.

Newshosting offers a unique newsgroup reader that acts as a “Usenet Browser”. It’s a perfect way for finding all the things you would find on a NZB search engine. Just keep in mind that you wont have the comments, download count, SickBeard/CouchPotato link, etc. So you’re going to lose the automation that we’ve come to love. But looking at the brightside, atleast we still get to enjoy the Usenet.
