The acronym NZB comes from NewZBin, the name of the company that developed this open standard. Basically, a NZB file contains all the necessary information about parts of a binary file on a newsgroup, making downloading of thousands of headers unnecessary. When fed to a compatible newsreader, this newsreader will automatically retrieve relevant messages only, and combine and decode the desired file. The user often needs to merely look for a file on an automated NZB indexer, download the corresponding NZB file and open it with the newsreader. All the rest is fully automated.

NZB is an XML -based file format for retrieving posts from NNTP ( Usenet ) servers. The format was conceived by the developers of the Newzbin. (wikipedia)
- Wikipedia: NZB is an XML-based file format for retrieving posts from NNTP servers. The format was conceived by the developers of the Newzbin.com Usenet Index. NZB is effective when used with search-capable websites. These websites create NZB files out of what is needed to be downloaded. Using this concept, headers would not be downloaded hence the NZB method is quicker and more bandwidth-efficient than traditional methods.
