Showbox is the most popular online video streaming app that’s out there nowadays, and it comes with great features, a very beautiful interface, and the best part is that it’s completely free. You don’t have to deal with annoying ads and pop-ups, it’s accessible everywhere you are and it gets new content constantly.
What is Showbox?
Showbox is that app that has all your favorite movies and TV shows and that allows you to watch them for free. It uses peer-to-peer and non peer-to-peer sources that let you stream videos online, or download them to watch them later offline.
Torrents are the primary sources of these videos, which means that, technically, it’s illegal to use this app. Keep in mind that it’s pirated content.
There are other alternatives to Showbox, that are affordable and legal, like Amazon or Netflix. They offer free trials and you can watch the content on multiple devices. However, if you’re here, you must really want Showbox, so here it is.
How to use it?
After you get the app and you install it, you need to choose the movie or TV show that you want to watch. If you don’t know what to watch, you can search for movies by genre, IMDB rating, a year until you find something you’d like. When you do find a movie, you have three options to choose from in terms of quality: 360p, 480p, or 720p. It really depends on your internet connectivity and the speed of your internet. After you choose the quality, you can either watch now, or download it for later.
When it comes to issues
If you’re having problems with some of the links or you get the “Showbox Server Down” error, then that means you’re probably blocked from the content. This usually happens when geo-blocking from the content takes place. You might want to use a VPN for that.
