Scroll down. Turn on Newznabhere.

Under Newznab, you have to give up a Newznab provider. For a list of see NewzNab Providers.

With the extra Score. You can indicate which CoucPotato should use first.

But watch out! If you also use other programs such as SickRage. Then you do need enough API requests. If only you have a very limited number. Then use different newznab providers.

Do not use Binsearch and NZBClub. Because then you get a lot of trash downloads. And they often don’t get along with strange names.
