MovieBox has always been a popular app for streaming movies and TV shows onto the iPhone or iPad but, just recently, it hasn’t been quite as reliable as it should be. Viewers have been left frustrated, unable to watch what they want, when they want, and many are starting to turn elsewhere. Luckily, there are plenty of Moviebox alternatives, all of them well worth looking at.
Top Five MovieBox Alternatives:
There are hundreds of movie streaming apps to choose from, but they don’t all do what they are meant to do, not without restriction anyway. We tested quite a few of them, and we found these five that offer a top-notch experience without any restrictions. Most are free to use, and all are legal and safe.
Viewster is perfect for viewers who want to watch their favorite anime movies and shows. Here, you can find the most popular movies, shows, cartoons and much more. It does have some ads, but this is more than made up for by the fact that you can watch stuff you can’t easily find elsewhere. Viewster is free to use, and all content is officially licensed by the developers. You can also create watch lists, and Chromecast is fully supported.
An incredibly popular choice, Hulu offers a ton of content and is one of the best sources for streaming TV shows, movies, series, and a whole heap more. Updated on a regular basis, the developers have given it support for several platforms and add new stuff all the time. It works well with Chromecast and, although it is web-based, that doesn’t interfere with your enjoyment. You do need an internet connection to watch it, though.
Undeniably the most popular media storage service in the world, Kodi, was originally released for the Xbox. Now, anyone on any platform can use it to store their own media and stream it when they want to and, using a huge choice of add-ons, you can also stream any other content you want – movies, shows, documentaries, sports, music, news, anything you can think of. Download Kodi for free from AppValleyApp.com and then search Google for the free addons. Installing them is dead simple, and you get a huge amount of choice by using the best ones.
Another popular choice, Sling is the only subscription-based choice on our list. It offers a choice of subscriptions, priced at $20 and $35 per month. On Sling, you can watch movies, tv shows, series, documentaries, kids shows, cartoons, sports, news, and more. With more than 10,000 hours of viewing, on-demand, you shouldn’t be lost for something to watch, and new content is added regularly.
With your subscription, you also get a choice of other popular channels, such as Fox, Disney, Nat Geo, and more. The app is free to download and use and is available in more than 20 languages. A free trial is available, and Sling offers occasional freebies and previews.
Our last choice is SnagFilms, an incredibly popular app that is totally free to download and use. Here, you can find over 6,000 movies, most of them full-length, plenty of TV shows, documentaries, cartoons, series, and much more. The app was specifically designed for the iPhone and iPad and is free to watch, so long as you always have an internet connection – Wi-Fi or data, it works on both. All the most popular genres are covered, including action, romance, Sci-Fi, adventure, horror, and more.
