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.

Latest Beta Release

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.

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.

We are currently backfilling the SuperSearch index with deobfuscated data. Due to this, downtime/low SuperSearch retention is expected during the next several hours time.
UPDATE :
Backfill has been successfully processed.
A lot of deobfuscated postings from 2017/2018, that were previously incomplete in the SuperSearch index, are now complete. Thanks for the patience :)

March 15, 2019

Due to a bug in some new code related to the deobfuscation engine in the SuperSearch backend, the SuperSearch service has been down for the last several hours. This has now been fixed. Sorry for the inconvenience.

With the new code in place, SuperSearch now deobfuscates *tons* of obfuscated postings every day. Also the SuperSearch index just got backfilled hundreds of thousands of freshly deobfuscated postings.

On a different node, we expect the first beta release of NewsLeecher V8.0 to be out within the next couple of weeks time. It will be a major upgrade from V7.0, since *lots* of code has been rewritten. Full support for obfuscated postings, full support for High DPI setups, new UI, a vastly optimized multi-threaded leeching engine and more.
