This video streaming app is not only free but is also free from in-app purchases. No barrier to your movie and TV-watching pleasure whatsoever.

Regular updates

The app is regularly updated to fix bugs and to patch security vulnerabilities. You can use it with peace of mind.

The collection of movies and TV shows are also updated regularly. You’re guaranteed access to the latest content with Showbox.

Free downloads

Free Tech

In addition to unlimited streaming, you can also download your favorite movie and TV shows for later viewing. And you don’t have to pay anything to do so.

Given this many amazing features, it’s not a surprise that Showbox has had its share of legal disputes. In most cases, it is not Showbox itself that is cited as the defendant but another entity.

The makers of the Dallas Buyers Club and several independent movie studios filed lawsuits against websites that distribute and promote the video streaming app.

Two websites, which remained anonymous, have settled with the group of movie companies that sued them.

Cloudflare was also served a subpoena, requiring them to reveal the identities of the people behind ‘pirate’ video streaming apps, including Showbox.

Because more and more people prefer to use Showbox than to pay to watch a movie or cable TV shows, it is one app that is likely to have claims of copyright infringement nipping at its heels.
