Top Awarded Usenet Software

The NewsLeecher software, is a highly awarded program for accessing the Usenet. It features a powerful and fully integrated Usenet search service, called SuperSearch, that makes it extremely fast and easy to find the Usenet articles you want.

Fast, Pretty and Efficient

State of the art user interface with support for the latest OS features and many options for tweaking the usability and the interface! Also built-in dynamic theme engine, that makes the NewsLeecher window "snow" in the winter and other (completely optional) funny stuff. All while being ultra fast and responsive.

Latest Final Release

If you are looking for the most stable performance, it is recommended that you download the final release. The final release isn't as new as the beta release, and might not contain just as much functionality, but it has been well tested by a large group of users to ensure better stability.

If you want to play around with the latest features, you should download the beta release. The beta does not provide the same stability as the final release does, as it still needs thoroughly testing, but it often includes brand new features and changes, not yet available in the final release.

NewsLeecher Version History

SuperSearch Usenet Searching

With the built-in SuperSearch search feature, you can search *all* available binary Usenet groups at once, for specific keywords or keystrings. The SuperSearch engine is state-of-the-art in its speed and ability to perform true wildcard searches plus much more.

SuperLeech Auto Download

From version 6.0 and on, NewsLeecher features a powerful service called "SuperLeech". The new service makes it possible to setup NewsLeecher to download wanted files 100% automatially, minutes after they have been posted to the Usenet.

NZB Files Fully Supported

NewsLeecher was the first Usenet client in the world to support the NZB format. It can create and export NZB files directly from articles in the group view or from SuperSearch results. And it can import NZB files manually and automatically in many different ways, for easy downloading.

No Spyware or Adware

NewsLeecher does *not* contain any spyware or adware that might send personal details over the Internet. In fact, it has been certified as spyware-, adware- and virus-free by one of the largest software sites on the Internet.

November 15, 2019

We are currently making some major upgrades to the SuperSearch engine. Optimizing the code and cleaning up a lot of spam postings, to make room for much more retention.
Unfortunately, an optimized build of the engine, caused SuperSearch to freeze for some hours, so the service could not be used.

Also, though unrelated, we had a temporary issue with our payment gateway, causing problems for new customers signing up for a NewsLeecher account and for current customers, who wanted to update credit card info via the NewsLeecher "Members Area".

Both of these issues have been fixed now. Sorry for the inconvenience.

October 20, 2019

During the next few days, we are moving the NewsLeecher website and the SuperSearch search service, to new, much more powerful, servers.

While the move is on-going, there might be times where the NewsLeecher website is not accessible. This issue should solve itself, within a couple of hours, as the new NewsLeecher domain IP address gets fully propagated.

Also, if you have problems getting in contact with the SuperSearch search service, from within the NewsLeecher application, please try restarting NewsLeecher and see if that helps.
If it doesn't, please conctact NewsLeecher support.

Sorry for the temporary issues, but we have to make the upgrades now, to make sure we can keep the services up-to-date in the future, in regards to SuperSearch speed, retention, etc.
