It is not so obvious how to download free movies and TV shows on Android. There are after all so many apps for almost anything on this platform. Many people talk about it, but few offer actual solutions that work. Today I want to simplify this process of streaming and downloading on your Android device for you.
The first thing to do is search for ShowBox. This is an exclusively Android app that allows you to stream or download unlimited TV shows and movies directly to your android device. The app is not found on Google Play store, so you will need to download the apk file directly to your device and then install it.
Straight out of the box, the Show Box app (pun intended) is well designed. It is a very handsome app with an intuitive and fresh interface. It will literally take you seconds to figure out how to start downloading the latest movies, even your favorite ones by simply doing a search. The app brings you millions of free titles, literally at your fingertips. Bless the Internet!
You do not need a particularly powerful Android smartphone or tablet to run this app. It uses little resources and it can run on almost any Android versions. So if you have an older device, or have not updated to the latest version of Android, don’t worry about it. The app will still work.
One good thing I like about the app is the ability to change the video quality settings from low, medium to high. A high video quality obviously consumes more bandwidth. I do not have high-speed broadband all the time, so I have to compromise between using Show Box to stream my movies and a slow Internet connection.
Now as mentioned many times, the app is exclusively for Android devices. However, if you do not own an Android device, you can always use an emulator like BlueStacks. It will allow you to open Android applications and run them in full compatibility.
How to download and not stream? Good question!
There are many situations where you want to download directly to your device and not stream. This way, you can view your movies and TV shows on the go, even without an Internet connection.
If like me, you have a limited drive space on your mobile, then you can change the drive location in Android settings. You can then save the movies directly on to an SD card rather than your phone’s internal disk. An outdated version of Android might not allow you to do this. You can then use the free version of ES File Manager to move the files onto your SD card. Voila!
The only bad thing I can say about the app is that it is not available for IOS devices, which is my daily driver. I would love to stream directly on my iPhone with an app like Show Box.
For those who like to watch free movies and TV shows online, this Android app is well-rounded and easy to use making the process of streaming and downloading any movie or TV show a cinch. Download the Show Box apk and give it a try. Chances are you will love it!
