Before we discuss PlayBox, let us take a look at the reason behind the popularity of such apps. One of the things that we go to for our entertainment needs is online movie streaming apps. No matter what we want to watch or where we want to watch it, we always get access to that video. Whenever we want to, we can watch films and TV shows. What more could possibly be needed to make these apps popular among the millennials? And when there is a demand for a certain thing, there are thousands of companies competing to make their product the most used one. And this is no different than that.
Therefore, it becomes quite difficult for us, the customers, to choose one from the countless options that have been laid out in front of us. And when we are in doubt, we always look for opinions. Therefore, I am going to provide you with a detailed review of one of the most popular apps, PlayBox. You will also find a link to download the same app with detailed instruction.
PlayBox is one of the top choices when it comes to online movie streaming. And the fact that it is considered to be the ‘Netflix of BitTorrent’ testifies the fact that the service is quite outstanding.
Why is PlayBox a better option?
PlayBox is not just another movie streaming app. It has way more to offer than just that. First of all, it does not cost you a fortune. And it is not any lesser in the ability to get contents faster than Netflix. While Netflix leaves a hole in your pocket, Playbox does not.
PlayBox beats Netflix in another aspect as well. While the paid services get the content through legal methods PlayBox and the likes do not. Hence, there are no long and excruciating waiting periods for movies to be available for us to stream. And there is still so much more to discover in this application.
PlayBox has a plethora of videos to offer. They have a vast and extensive collection. Movies from old to the latest ones are there. Be it Action or Thriller or Comedy or Animated, it is all there. And I have already mentioned that they are faster than lightning in getting the movies fresh out of theaters to their collection.
And all of these movies are there for the users to watch till the end, i.e. full-length movies. As opposed to many similar apps and sites where there are only bits and parts of the films, PlayBox hosts full-length movies.
And their video database is not exhausted with only films. They have TV shows and cartoons in their store too. TV Series that have ended are there for us to see. And the latest episodes are also updated at a regular frequency.
Video Player Features:
The video player is great. You can pause and leave watching a video midway. And when you open the app the next time, you will be able to start watching the video from right where you left it.
Also, subtitles can be added without any hassle. For that matter, the app itself is available in multiple languages. So, you see the potential of this app is quite promising.
The users also have the option of downloading the movies for offline viewing. And there is no cap or limitation to this particular feature. You can download as many videos as you want.
The gallery is completely optimized. The videos are categorized according to their types. There are also two categories in each broad categories. While one shows you the newest additions to the collection, the other shows you all the trending videos. The broader categories are further categorized by the genres.
Apart from the well-organized gallery which makes it really easy for the users to navigate through their collection, there also is a favorite tab. You can mark any video you like as your favorite from the menu itself. All of this videos automatically are enlisted in your Favorites tab. Thus you can even personalize the gallery to make it easier for you to access.
PlayBox app was initially released for only iOS devices. Due to the limited options that there are for iOS devices, the app gained popularity soon. The developers then released the app for other platforms as well. Currently, PlayBox is compatible with Android devices as well.
It is also compatible with Chrome Cast, or any local cast. You can pair the app with your Smart TVs from your smartphone. And even gaming consoles like PlayStation, XBox.
I believe I have covered all the important points about PlayBox. Now let us move towards the installation tutorial.
Installing PlayBox on Android Phones:
Despite the fact that PlayBox is a cool and useful app, it is not there on Google Play Store. Hence, downloading it on Android phones is a three step process. But there is no need to be afraid. I am going to direct you through every step to make it easier for you.
