PlayBox is a newly discovered MovieBox alternative which is confirmed working on iOS 8 without jailbreak. Check it out after the jump.
UPDATE: Like other similar side-loaded apps, PlayBox HD stopped working for most people on iOS 8.1.2 and iOS 8.1.3. MovieBox, the original app that spawned other Popcorn Time alterantives, is working on iOS 8.2! Find out how to download MovieBox on iOS 8.2 without jailbreak.
A few days ago, MovieBox 3.2 basically just stopped working for most people. The app either wouldn’t launch at all, or if it did, it would not stream any movie or TV show. We have tried our best to find a way to get MovieBox to work again, and as it turns out, the solution is a MovieBox alternative called PlayBox.
PlayBox – like MovieBox before it – allows you to stream as well as download movies without making a dent in your wallet. To put it bluntly, it is a not-so ethical way to stream and download movies without paying for them like you would with a system like Netflix.
The list of features in PlayBox 1.3 includes:
- Stream and download movies from a regularly updated library
- Subtitles support
- Chromecast support
- Download videos from YouTube
- Keep your children away from adult-rated content with ‘Kids Mode’
- Works over 3G / 4G and WiFi
MovieBox comes with a lot more little, useful features but at least the core streaming movie and TV show torrents experience remains the same in PlayBox 1.3.
To download PlayBox 1.3, go to PlayboxHD.com through Safari. Tap on the Available on the App Store link, and confirm the download in the pop-up box. In case that does not work, try the four different links under the App Store button.
Hopefully, at least one of the links will work for your device.
We have tested PlayBox 1.3 on both my iPad mini with Retina Display and iPhone 5S on iOS 8.1.2. To be perfectly honest, it did not work on either device. However, we have seen multiple reports on online forums and communities of it working on iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPad Air on iOS 8.1.x. It may or may not work on your device, and we apologize in advance if this causes any inconvenience.
For what its worth, the single best method to enjoy MovieBox is to jailbreak your device, and download it from Cydia. That is bound to work!
