MovieBox has long been a popular app for streaming movies and TV shows on mobile devices, but its millions of users are bitterly disappointed by its sudden demise. For reasons only they know, the developers have opted to stop support for the app with immediate effect, leaving uses trying to log in to no avail. There is nothing to worry about as there are plenty of other alternatives that you can use on your mobile device to continue watching your favorite stuff.
Top 5 MovieBox Alternatives:
The app stores are full of apps claiming to offer unlimited streaming, but not all of them do what they claim to. To save you having to work your way through thousands of apps, we did it for you. We tested hundreds of apps, and these are the five we consider to be the best MovieBox alternatives. Not all of them are free, but all offer a great range of movies and TV shows.
A subscription-only app, Netflix is one of the best-known apps for streaming TV shows and movies. Content does vary from region to region but using a VPN will ensure you can watch any geo-restricted content. Netflix offers a huge number of movies and series from classics to the newest releases and, with the app on your mobile, you can watch what you want, when you want. New content is regularly added, and the built-in search facility makes it easy to find your favorites. Two features that stand out are the ability to download so you can watch offline and Netflix’s ability to learn from your viewing preferences to suggest content to you.
Another subscription-based service, Amazon Prime Video is one of the most popular streaming apps. It is the place where Amazon original series are shown, such as Good Omens, The Grand Tour, Tumble Leaf, Jack Ryan and more. You can also watch a huge range of movies, and you can download to watch offline later. It’s possible to cast your choice to a larger screen, watch your shows and movies on Apple TV and see information about your viewing choices.
The first free option in our list, Kodi is almost a household name. An open-source media app, Kodi, is free to use. Originally designed as a way of uploading and storing your own media files for playback at any time, there are now hundreds of add-ons to choose from. These add-ons provide you with access to all the media you could possibly want to watch – movies, shows, series, documentaries, music, news, kids, and more. It is supported on all platforms and downloading the addons is simple – just run a Google search and choose your addon. Its available on TweakBox appstore.
A combined effort, MediaBox is a combination of APIs from different developers, offering one of the most reliable and smoothest of all the MovieBox alternatives. Offering movies, TV shows series, Anime, cartoons, documentaries, and more, MediaBox HD caters to all tastes and is free to download and use.
Our final choice of MovieBox alternative is Vudu, offering users a vast amount of streaming content. It has a reputation of being one of the very best streaming apps and, although it is ad-supported, these do not interfere with your viewing too much. You can choose from thousands of shows, movies, and other content and you can stream in HDX. With over 10,000 titles to choose from, there is something for all tastes, and you can either watch online or download for offline viewing.
With MovieBox gone, millions of people will be searching for an alternative and, hopefully, the five we picked for you will offer something that suits your requirements. Not all of them are free, but those that are subscription-based are not expensive, and you do get great value for money. All of them provide great streaming options, and some of them will even let you download content to watch offline later on.
Give them a go and see which ones suit you best. For new users to subscription apps, you will often find a free trial (Amazon Prime offers 30 days free) giving you the chance to see what you get for your money. Take these trials, give them a fair go and make your choice.
