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.

Due to a technical glitch, some of the monthly NewsLeecher subscription customers have been billed twice this month.
We have credited the associated customer accounts for the amount that was double-billed.
If you are a customer who is affected by this, and you have any questions, please send us a message throught the NewsLeecher support page.
Sorry for any inconvenience / confusion this may have caused.

August 20, 2020

We are currently recovering from a major hardware failure incident on the NewsLeecher server. ( the largest in the history of NewsLeecher - yay, new record! )

SuperSearch is currently down. So is SuperLeech, as well as - sporadically - the website.

If everything goes as planned, all services will be up and running again over the next several hours time. We'll keep you updated - and now back to work!

Everything is finally up and running again. Though, there is currently a "hole" in the SuperSearch retention that spans over some months in 2019-2020. We are currently working filling that gap, so SuperSearch retention is totally complete again.
On a side note, we should soon be able to increase the SuperSearch retention to 10-14 years, as promised earlier. It was a larger task than we had originally estimated it to be, to rebuild the retention data to a more efficient, fast, wildcard-searchable format, so it has taken longer than anticipated. But finally, it's about do be a successfully completed task!
