The best way to know if an app is valid and reliable (by constantly providing its users what it claims) is through reviews provided by members of the public globally. ShowBox is not short of very positive and encouraging reviews, and we will outline some of them here.
First of all, is ShowBox safe for use?
According to several users, showbox download is safe and little or no issues from a security risk perspective has been reported with ShowBox.
A user said “I’ve been using it for a while now and it’s awesome but one concern is that it’s showing up in my location stats as high battery usage”. This “problem” of high battery usage may not be peculiar to ShowBox alone, because even when one is watching downloaded movies, the battery usage will be higher than normal.
Another user quipped “I’ve been using it for well over six months. Absolutely amazing app with some intrusive apps. No other trouble noted”.
A happy user wrote “showbox download is really the best if you really want to watch some movies that just came out or in theaters or on DVD’s then this is the right app for you It’s not like those apps that you have to download each movie and take up a whole bunch of space from your devices, instead you can just click on play now and watch it right on your tablet or phone”.
A user who awarded showbox download four stars remarked “I don’t watch very many movies but this app is convenient when time permit. One complaint, interruptions for whatever reason, the movie doesn’t resume”.
While giving five stars to ShowBox, this user retorted “They should make a new search title for actors/ actress name so we can search for the name of people and not only movies”.
The above review shows that albeit minor complaints, ShowBox is right up there among the best movie apps ever.
Streaming movies and series is considered legal in Europe as well as the UK, as the user does not have possession of the file they are streaming. Once the content has been viewed, no copy of it remains on their PC. In the U.S., there have been cases of internet providers or owners of copyright material that have sent users warnings when streaming, stating that it is a punishable offense. Some U.S. users have had luck, but others not. When streaming from YouTube and Netflix, it is legal as the servers own the videos. Streaming from certain sites that don’t own the movie or series can be morally problematic, however, as the owners of the files receive no payment from your viewing. Netflix is able to provide the content it does because it charges a subscription fee, which it uses part of to pay for the content it delivers. Most other streaming sites do not pay for content at all. They make money through selling advertising space on their site, allowing them to provide the content to users for free.
