Check out our full NZBplanet review. 

NZBPlanet is one of the most popular NZB indexers around, so you’ll see it recommended quite a bit. 

But is it simply coasting on its reputation, or does it really deserve a spot among the best indexers? Keep reading to find out.


NZBPlanet Pricing

While NZBPlanet’s free plan is invite only, VIP memberships are quite affordable, and they even offer lifetime memberships.

  • VIP Tier – 8€ per year – 5000 API hits and Unlimited downloads
  • Platinum Tier – 15€ per year – 20000 API hits and Unlimited downloads
  • Love Us Long Time (Lifetime) Tier – 40€ for life – 20000 API hits and Unlimited downloads

The VIP membership is a tremendous value – and will provide more than enough API hits and downloads for the average Usenet user. However, the standout tier is the Lifetime, or LULT as NZBPlanet calls it, since not every indexer provides one.

Unfortunately, while NZBPlanet does have a free plan, it’s only available via invite.

Payments can be made by either credit card or Bitcoin.

How to Register at NZBPlanet

As we alluded to above, you do need an invite from a current NZBPlanet member to take advantage of their free plan.

Only a chosen few get to enter.

Invite

Registering a free account is by invitation-only. Keeping an eye on r/usenet is your best bet. 

However, registration is effectively open if you’re willing to pay for a membership, even if it’s just the VIP tier. A valid email address is required for your NZBPlanet login, but there’s no verification, as far as we saw.

What Kind of Content is NZBPlanet Best For?

One of the main reasons to choose one indexer over another is the amount and type of content that they index. So, as part of our review, we did a comparison between NZBPlanet and other top indexers, like NZBGeek and DrunkenSlug.

And Planet did a good job of holding its own, which makes it one of the better indexers around, in terms of content. However, it does seem to lag behind when it comes to foreign content, whether we were looking for specific releases or just browsing the latest content to be added.

Of course, this is where their NZB request feature mentioned above helps out.

Watchlist

NZBplanet's Movies and TV Watch List features are pretty awesome. 

Software

As you'd expect, NZBplanet supports all the add-ons you could ever want.

Is NZBPlanet Worth It?

Stats

All of that’s good and well, but the question still remains: is NZBPlanet worth it?

We’d say it definitely is. You really can’t go wrong with such a large library at such a low price. Oh, and you get unlimited NZB downloads too.

In short, there’s a reason NZBPlanet is one of the most popular indexers on the web. It’s earned it.
