NZBMatrix Closes its Doors

Postby SlyckTom » Sun Dec 09, 2012 9:14 am

In the wake of the closure of Newzbin2 comes news of another popular NZB website going offline - the venerable NZBMatrix. When the original Newzbin had closed, NZB Matrix quickly became the go to location for all things NZB. However, like with Newzbin2, the hassle of copyright enforcement and all the subsidiary issues became too much. From NZBMatrix:

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.

No bueno...I was on board w/ nzbmatrix for a long time, before newzbin v1 had closed shop & all that.

I guess the writing was on the wall after the comment limitations had been voiced by the admins(and ignored by many) a few wks back.

Thanks to the team that made it a great place while it was up & running.

I was a VIP member and woke up to see this today. Too bad they had to shut their forums down too. It was a great community. :(
In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

Damn, I also used it daily, and Newzbin before, this is getting ridiculous, I am also bouncing around all the different USPs now as well. In the old days it was Newzbin, NZBmatrix and Astraweb, but now you don't know where to go.

Another one bites the dust.. They made no mention of this on IRC, i was there till 3 am last night. Sad to see them go and it was still worth the ten bucks.. They make some excellent points, usenet is getting DMCA'd left and right, it is near impossible to get anything popular without using something like SaB/sickbeard. It was a fun few years, RIP NzbMatrix..

I did like the forums as well but only recently started posting there.

I don't seem to have that problem with others using my nickname for some reason. :lol:

Bummer.
Wow, and I've been off usenet for a while. Mostly because of lack of time and interest.
but i'm off all month so I need something to watch on these cold winters days..

I was just about to re-join the fun and then my nas decided to puke a disk.
With my File system running in data protection mode. it's not a good Idea to add more data to it
while it's recovering. Failed drive "Seagate ST3000DM001" ... it's a 3tb hd that thinks is now a 1tb hd..

Now after all that my fave site NZBMatrix dies. Oh well, Nzb's are not dead just this site.
it's now going to be more inconvenient to find them.
I guess more people are going to be doing more of there own personal nzb indexes and relining less on third party servers.

It takes me longer to find the things I want but I do find them.

These day's I file trade via mail, sending USB sticks and entire hard drives are faster than internet connections in my area.

A couple of displaced Matrix members have started a forum: http://matrix.nux.sx

There's no index nor will there ever be. It's just a place for the old community to hang out at again.

The IRC channel is still very active too.


I thought that it smelled funny here. A fart and a carcass. LTNS. :headbang:

I'm not sure which is the greater shock .... the disappearance of NZBMatrix or the reappearance of FartingBob! :o

There's a simple solution...at least temporarily. A newsgroup filled with nothing but NZB files. Call it say alt.binaries.nzbeez. Then you just download headers for one group and see all the NZBs that have been posted which point to content in other groups. Anyone could contribute to it using Newznab.

The VERY FIRST external hard drive I had was a seagate 500 GB....good thing I had my stuff also backed up onto DVDs! That stupid thing went out after only a few months of having it! Never will buy seagate stuff again. Bought WD instead and never looked back.

Today, I have two WD 1 TB external hard drives as well as a WD 3 TB hard drive. No problems...no regrets in switching over.

The two 1 TB hard drives I have had for years..no problems. The 3 TB is new, but no problems so far.


As far as NZB Matrix closing, yeah, looks like newsgroup sites are just as vulnerable to takedowns as torrent sites. Problem is, there are not a lot of good NZB sites left.
