If you love films and TV shows, but find Netflix´s catalogue rather boring and limited, here´s something you have to try on your Android smartphone or tablet.
Cinema Box is a free app that comes with tonnes of films and episodes at no cost. It includes titles like The Revenant, Deadpool, and Zootopia, while Big Bang Theory, The Office, and Friends are some of the shows that fill the dedicated section. You will also find cartoons and anime in the left-side hamburger menu.
You can choose the quality of streaming, and download your favourite video for offline viewing. Cinema Box´s speed depends on your internet connection as well as the streaming quality you select. And if you´re watching a foreign movie, or wish to close-caption the content, there´s a dedicated button in the bottom right of the player where you get to set the subtitles. (Spanish, Chinese, English, you name it.)
Cinema Box has a very straight-forward interface; titles divide into “Popular” and “New”, and there´s a genre icon in the home screen, next to the search tool, where you can choose from romantica, terror, and comedy, to name a few. The app is a follow up to Play Box HD, and is also available for iPhone and iPad, although Apple may end up restricting its access.
As you can see in the image above, the app does come with ads. The occasional pop up will cover your screen when browsing for a title. Nevertheless, ads are not that annoying and you can enjoy the app relatively pain-free.
As a quick reminder, you will need to turn on the “Uknown Sources” tab in your Android´s settings. Otherwise, you won´t be able to install it. Say goodbye to paying for a streaming service, and hello to an unlimited library at your fingertips.
