Looking for Apps Like Showbox: Here You Go (Oct. 2018)

When it comes to user-friendliness, option variety, easy operation and overall great value, not too many streaming sites can match the kind of experience you get with Showbox. It is near perfect, sure, but it doesn’t hurt to have alternatives, other sites like it that fit the bill when it comes to high value.

  1. Movie Box

This site tops the list simply because it is one of the most feature rich. Its features are much like Showbox, and it also supports Russian languages. The best part of this streaming site is the fact that it is usually one of the first to post new movie releases, it has HD quality films and it’s easy to use, so you don’t have to worry about getting lost trying to find your favorite film. You can also download it for any operating system, it works great across the board.


  • Easy to use
  • They post new movies faster than most sites


Watching a trailer every time you try you watch a movie will drive you crazy if you’re not the patient type.

  1. Crackle

If you’re on an Android operating system, then a good substitute for Showmax would be the Crackle streaming site. The fact that it is only limited to Android users is a bit of a handicap, but in terms of performance and overall value, Crackle is one of the smoothest streaming experiences you can get. It does, however, take a whole month to update its archives on the latest movies, so you have to wait a while to get the next part of your favorite TV show.


  • Easy download option. This allows you to save movies and watch them later
  • Well written subtitles if you don’t understand the language
  • Great quality, HD movies, and series are available


  • It takes too long to update new content
  1. Playbox HD

The great thing about this site is it accommodates both Android and IOS operating systems. It is strikingly similar to Showmax and were it not for the bluish theme on its interface, most people would actually confuse it for Showmax. Like the other two alternatives, it also has a lot of great content to choose from, it has HD movies and series, and you can watch it on your phone, tablet or even laptop if it’s compatible.


  • All its features are free.
  • All features are available for both Android and IOS.
