It is too good to be true!

These services use the same business model as Dropbox, Spotify or just about any free Web hosting: offer a free service that's decent, a paid one that's much better, and hope the former will lure you to the latter. Whether this ends up being "too good to be true" depends on how many people shell out cash - if not enough, they can't continue operating, shut down and disappear (this happened to at least four other similar ones).

Anyway, I tried it with a small file and it worked. Here are the differences between the free and paid tiers.

Hi,

I read that a NZB file is the equivalent of a torrent file (it tells you what files you will download but doesn't contain the actual files).
in the screenshot, I see max NZB size 1 and 15GB.
why?

thanks,

M.

It refers to the total size of what you want to download, not the .nzb file itself.

This service was also posted on FileSharing Talk, and someone made the following comment:


I have send them a email asking more info about service, they said that data transfer has been increaded to 5GB per day, max filesize to 2GB and available cloud storage to 5GB.

Maybe its a temporally promotion!! so lets to take advantage of this

Also, here's a program you can use to split NZBs.
