The End...

It is with our regret to announce that NZBMATRIX has closed.

We have had to make this decision due to a very large takedown request from a company called Wiggin LLC. These represent the following: Federation Against Copyright Theft Limited ("FACT"), Paramount Home Entertainment International Limited; Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Limited; The Walt Disney Company Limited; Twentieth Century Fox Film Company Limited; Universal Pictures (UK) Limited; Warner Bros. Entertainment UK Limited.

As everyone is aware we are DMCA/Takedown notice compliant, and always have been.
Once this notice is completed we are left with an impossible task of policing our indexing bots. Even then it won't stop there, there will be follow-up notices etc.

Coupled with this is problems with payment providers, we have been through pretty much everyone out there, in the end they all pull out.
There are massive server/bandwidth costs to pay, with the payments in-stability this is a very hard task.

NZBMATRIX has never been the subject of any legal issues or threats.

Also the Usenet Indexing scene is going through some changes, with content being removed from pretty much every provider its making the existence of an indexer irrelevant if the content does not even exists anymore.

So it's time for us to bow out...
not happy about the start to this morning. :(

does this make binsearch, the only nzb site left?

They could have at least left the forums up.

Nzbweb.com is what I'm on for now. Not the matrix but will do temporally.

Wow, reading this from my phone as I was about to jump in my computer for my Sunday download refresh. Holy **** this sucks. I feel like a limb was just amputated.

I'm lost!!! This was better than having a DVR.
Me too. I hate the idea of paying for cable when most of what is on is absolutely useless. I'd be more than happy to pay for service if I could get the channels I wanted rather than subsidize all the bs that's out there.

I'm kind of suspicious of things on that site. I tried two DS games to see what would happen. Instead of extracting as .nds files they extract as .exe. I have no idea about what would happen if I were to try running those and I'm not going to find out. In the properties the program creator was known as xxxcomputerlocator or something of that sort.

I'll look around. Newzbin shut down too. Maybe Merlin's Portal?

Nzbs.org is the best, but it's invite only - I've been looking for years.
