Ever found yourself lost in the abyss of laziness and lethargy, not knowing how to spend your free time? When even your faithful smartphone can’t entertain you or bring some excitement into your life, the boredom engulfing you can be pretty depressing. Unless you do not allow that to happen. That’s when our billion dollar worth entertainment industry dives in to your rescue. Movies are being produced left, right and center, both in Hollywood as well as Bollywood and every year, a number of films grab eyeballs for their excellent content, entertainment value as well as the film-making prowess of the crew. Such films are lying in wait to entertain you and all you need to do is lay your hands on them. But how does one do that? Paying a visit to the theatres every time one is bored is not a viable option because it comes with a price tag and it also doesn’t allow one to watch at one’s leisure. So is there another alternative? Thankfully there is and this time, it can be accessed from your smartphone itself!
While piracy is never encouraged, there exist a few apps and websites that have worked their way around this to provide a massive collection of movies and sitcoms to the public for free. These include Netflix, Torrents, The PirateBay and so on. One similar app is ShowBox which has impressed millions of users with its exclusive features. Let us look into it more closely and gauge the reasons for its immense popularity.
Well for starters, other websites like Netflix have a billing system which allows the user a free trial of 1 month and then starts charging them monthly for their services. On the contrary, ShowBox charges you absolutely nothing even if you choose to download every single movie they have. That again would be a hypothetical situation because ShowBox offers one of the most massive collections and it would probably take a person years to go through a significant portion of their collection. ShowBox is even diligent enough to keep up with every episode release of the popular sitcoms and immediately uploads it for everyone to enjoy. Apart from this, it also offers enthusiastic movie buffs a wide array of genres to choose from by having a number of filters using which one can shortlist a movie easily. So does ShowBox have the latest movies? Absolutely. Every movie of 2015is ready to be downloaded, including the ones that reined the box-office. All you have to do is download the app.
For all the people who nurture a passion for movies and are not satisfied with the latest releases, ShowBox caters to their needs as well. Movie enthusiasts who wish to delight themselves with the releases of the early 90’s can also do so because this wondrous app has collections beginning from 1930. Clearly, ShowBox aims not only at impressing Gen Y but also the senior population by bringing a nostalgic smile on their faces and make them reminisce their days of movie watching. To add a cherry to the cake, ShowBox guarantees an HD viewing experience for every movie or episode downloaded. They do accept that a few of their videos, that are harder to come by, may have a poorer video quality but a majority of their movies and sitcoms, especially the popular ones are only in HD. Not allowing any compromise in quality is one of the reasons why ShowBox is racing towards the peak of the mountain of success in the world of free video streaming.
To add to the seemingly never ending list of this app’s positives, ShowBox also gives its users the luxury of choosing movies based on IMDB’s ratings as well as ShowBox’s very own ratings. It also has the exceptional feature of effortless streaming by minimizing the buffering time during a download. While this app isn’t available on Google Play Store, it can be downloaded on any Android based phone by following an easy, step-by-step tutorial available on the net. The latest version of ShowBox also allows free streaming of music. Like we needed another reason to love this app. Those who haven’t used this app and experienced the user-friendly interface first-hand might be a little skeptical about the tall claims made by this app but let me tell you that you can rest assured about its credibility. Having feedback websites painted with songs of praise by dozens of regular users, ShowBox is gaining a huge fan base which only gets bigger with every passing day. It also allows seamless streaming if you don’t wish to download and there is a special feature where one can enable Chromecase support and connect ShowBox to it. Also, any issues with the app can be reported and their efficient customer service will respond and provide a fix for the issue. Clearly, one does not need to emphasize on the fact that the makers of ShowBox left no stone unturned when it came to putting forward the best streaming service possible. Surely ShowBox is a boon to every movie buff, but doesn’t every coin have another side to it?
Piracy is technically a crime so if you delve into the technicalities, ShowBox is basically endorsing piracy and hence, criminal activity and by using the app, so are you! Movie making is an art and the objective behind prohibiting piracy is to discourage free distribution of a precious craft that deserves its due in the form of compensation. A dedicated team usually makes a film happen and by distributing it for free, apps like ShowBox make going to the theatre redundant. This has an impact on the sales oftickets, thus affecting the film’s business. So the bottom line is, piracy is illegal and so is ShowBox! In developed countries, more efforts are being put in to nip the problem of piracy at the bud but the process is a slow one. Blaming ShowBox is also incorrect because where there is demand, there will be supply and this app merely supplies. If there didn’t exist a demand for pirated videos, there wouldn’t exist an app like ShowBox. Hence, a judicious use of this app for movies which aren’t running in theatres would help in reducing unnecessary piracy. However keeping aside the aspect of piracy, one cannot deny that ShowBox is pretty flawless. It delivers everything it promises and most importantly, it is free. Gone are the days of boredom! Infact, I have already decided on what I want to download from ShowBox. Have you?
