  • alt.binaries.moovee
  • alt.binaries.divx
  • alt.binaries.multimedia.vintage-film

However, while searching through individual newsgroups may come in handy on occasion, it’s no longer necessary. These days, there’s a much easier way to search and find movies Usenet.

Best Way to Find Movies on Usenet: NZB Indexers

NZB indexers have really streamlined the process of searching through Usenet.

Rather than manually digging through endless newsgroup searches and countless files, you can simply type the movie you’re looking for into the indexer’s search engine – and it’ll quickly show you any matching NZB movie results.

You can also use the indexer to browse the most recent releases, most popular content, or to sort movies by their quality. In short, these NZB sites work very similar to torrent sites/trackers.

And not only are Usenet indexers easier to use, they give you access to more content, since they’re able to search through obfuscated files too. When viewed from a newsreader, these obfuscated files will often have a title that’s just a random string of letters and numbers. But the indexer will display their actual names, so you know exactly what you’re downloading. 

There’s only one downside. The best indexers usually require a membership fee – but it’s typically only a couple dollars per month.
