Nowadays, it isn't that hard to consume some form of entertainment wherever you may be. And what better way is there to relax and enjoy some downtime than to watch a movie with just your smartphone on hand? If you would try to do this a few years back, it would probably be by way of some low-quality video rips. However, piracy has somehow met a decline thanks to a lot of ways to access legal content. One of the most sought after and downloaded apps nowadays is Showbox. While it allows you to stream free movies and TV shows on your smartphone, tablet, or computer, what could possibly set it apart from other popular streaming platforms? Well, the answer is simple. The app lets you access a library of various content that you can watch without having to pay anything. With this platform, you can also do things that services like Netflix offer like downloading and saving videos.

However, you do not need to put yourself in jeopardy and risk watching through illegal sites to enjoy some of the latest movies. There are different alternatives to Showbox that are legally available on the Google Play Store which can give you equal satisfaction and much better viewing quality. While Showbox gives convenience for binge-watchers, it has certain risks. Using it entails a detailed knowledge of your device as well as the ins and outs of watching content illegally. Are you still struggling to stream your favorite movies and TV shows legally, 1 4? Well, we are here to help you find some apps like Showbox that could help you watch your favorite content the right way. Browse the list and enjoy!

    "Still the undisputed video streaming giant of all time. Nothing can come close to the superiority of Netflix. I've had it for 3 years now and its catalog of movies, TV shows, and originals is unparalleled. So many excellent shows to choose from: Stranger Things, Mad Men, Orange is the New Black, Lucifer, etc. Personally, I would never support illegal streaming apps like Showbox, PlayBox and Cinema APK because I have respect for the diligence and hard work of people who work in the entertainment industry. AND SO SHOULD YOU. 👉"

    "For those who can't afford Netflix or Hulu (or are just plain stingy like me), Cinema APK is an excellent movie app for streaming. Its catalogue is constantly updated so you can watch the latest films in HD. You wouldn't be able to find it on Play Store since it's an APK file but it isn't hard to find, download and install. Hypocrites who claim that they've never watched a bootleg movie ever, back off! "

    "Kodi is a great software that assembles all your favorite sites and apps for streaming and entertainment, both legal and illegal. Kodi itself isn't illegal, so you need not worry your a** off if you download it. Perhaps choose the apps that you're gonna include. You can customize it anyway. It's a great one-stop hub for all your entertainment needs. "

    "A good streaming app that's FREE. The downside is you have to watch lengthy ads and the videos are grainy. But who cares? It's FREE! There are not a lot of movies per se, but who am I to complain if it's FREE? Download it and give it a shot. It's definitely no Netflix, but it's FREE!!! 🤣"

    "Why have Hulu? GAME OF THRONES!!! I don't have cable TV but that's the only show I watch. I already have HBO Now which at $15 per month isn't bad. With Hulu, I can stream GoT. Plus, I can watch tons of other movies and complete TV series. Nothing against Netflix, but it doesn't have GoT."

    "This is not a streaming app. It's an aggregator. It gives you options on where to watch movies and TV shows that you search. Usually, Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, Google Play and Crackle come up. Plus, it has a live TV stream feature. Cool app!"
