The Showbox app is a popular mobile app for Android, Blackberry and Apple devices. It allows users to download and watch all their favorite movies and TV shows or simply watch them on the Showbox app website. The app is free to users and makes it convenient to enjoy entertainment on the go.
Even though the app is free, because Showbox has a collection of TV shows and movies, users still need to give a credit card number in order to be able to stream full length movies. The reason for this is that the company that owns Showbox only has a license to operate in certain countries throughout the world. Users can sign up for a basic membership for free or they can choose to pay for a premium membership to the site. The basic membership simply lets users view clips of TV shows as well as mvie trailers.Users with a smart TV can also access the Showbox app to enjoy a wide selection of TV shows and movies.
While some people question the legality of the Showbox app, the way it is set up is technically not in violation of the law, which states that for someone to legally be able to watch a TV show or movie they have to pay for it, the same way one would pay for a movie ticket or cable TV at home. Since Showbox purchases the rights to air the movies and TV shows they make available to those who use the app, they are not breaking the law. This is why users with a free membership can’t watch anything but clips and trailers.
The way the Showbox app is set up means that the company can legally allow their members to view content based on whether they have a free membership or a paid one.
