Online streaming is here to stay. Slowly, we are leaping towards next-generation wireless technology, with 5G already live in some major cities. Meanwhile, a good 4G LTE implementation is more than enough for us to consume media contents on-the-go. Today, we will talk about yet another third-party streaming app that has been floating on the internet for quite some time.
What is MovieBox?
Just like few other third-party streaming apps, we covered on this site, MovieBox collects data from different sources to display it on its app. That means, MovieBox doesn’t host these files, making them less of a target for copyright charges. MovieBox only acts as a browser for these contents.
MovieBox allows streaming in HD, with many categories to sort. It is also available in both Android and Amazon Firestick making it accessible for everyone. If you live in India, MovieBox features both Hollywood and Bollywood movies in more than 15 languages including Hindi, Tamil, Telegu, and Punjabi.
As you already know, MovieBox has many features of its own. In this part, we will try to go through each and explain it further to you.
Simple UI – Just like TeaTV and CyberFlix, MovieBox features a UI that is both simple and easy to navigate. On home is where the contents are displayed, but you can sort and filter which contents to show. It all depends on which categories interest you.
Offers contents in Full HD – MovieBox features 1080p Full HD contents. However, you can adjust this according to your network speed. The lowest quality is in 360p, which while not even considered standard, will still offer you a decent streaming experience even at the slowest 3G/4G LTE network.
Torrent integration – You can use your Debrite account with the app and enjoy downloading content from Torrent straight from the MovieBox app.
MovieBox Pro – While MovieBox is free to use, some features can only be accessed by paying a small amount. MovieBox Pro will allow users to play videos and songs in the background while using other applications.
Offline download at no-cost – MovieBox offers no in-app purchase. That means you can watch and download movies all you want for offline viewing. This especially comes in handy if you have a poor internet signal, or perhaps you have travel plans to a place where the internet is almost non-existent.
Android & Amazon Firestick support – Just like the TeaTV and CyberFlix, MovieBox is also available on both Android and Amazon Firestick. This makes it more accessible to everyone. It also consumes less space at less than 100MB.
