They're indirectly owned by Omnicron. like many other providers.

Unfortunately I haven't been with them for a while, this was one of those we miss you
emails. I'm sure they delete posts as well, but might not be as strict as their US counterparts.

My Sonarr usually manage to grab everything I need, but that's not where the problem is,
it's the older stuff that goes missing ....

But hey, they've got a 10 day unlimited free trial, give it a go, and see how they
compare with your current provider(s).

I have been on tweak for 4 years now and have yet to see a single post deleted. I use daily. Best service available IMO.

I always focused on having a backup on a different backbone, is the current best strategy to get a backup with a different parent company now? Looks like Omnicron owns all the cheap/accessible ones.

Is that bad or good since Omnicron owns it? I used to use them for fill server because they were so expensive. I am considering this if it is getting more completes.

Just depends on how the "Take-Down" requests are submitted and handled. If they are simply submitted to the parent company and Omnicron in this case then removes it from all their backbones, it wouldn't be of any value to use one of their other backbones as a backup because they would all be removed at roughly the same time.

If the requests are submitted to the backbone, there could be delays to how long it takes to implement.

Using Newsdemon which just seems to be a reseller of Omnicron. Would you buy it?

if you're not experiencing any take downs, then no, unless you want the free VPN.

it's cheaper Stick Out Tongue

Beeing a dutch provider the take downs might be less noticable.
But they only have servers in EU, so you may experience slower DLds.
