With the advent of digital television and the creation of Internet, the entertainment industry churns out great live action contents and music for the international audience.
But these are often unavailable in your country due to various legal battles and limitations. While there is always torrent to download from, we all know that pirated contents can contain malwares or something completely junk.
Showbox is the ideal replacement of it all – which lets you stream any show for free. But alas! It is exclusively an Android app only. But, you can use Bluestacks to run it in your PC. How? Let us have a look.
Showbox – The App Itself!
It is a free TV show and movie app, which is not directly available from the Play store. It lets you watch any content in HD resolution. Contents can be bookmarked for later viewing too.
The app presents the user with a very simple to use UI and the contents are listed with thumbnails depicting their covers or contents. The app can easily be downloaded in the form of an APK file.
Contents can be added to custom library, which will be updated for recurring contents such as sitcoms or episodic shows. So, what is the way out to get this Android app on your PC? Let us dive in to the process quickly.
ShowBox For PC:
In order to make Showbox for PC a reality, you will firstly need software that can emulate the Android environment on your PC, as it cannot directly run Android apps. This emulation will let you access all Android’s apps and games sitting in front of your PC.
Bluestacks is an Android emulator that will let you install all your Android apps easily and even let you access Google’s play store services. So how to proceed with this information in mind? Here are the steps listed:
- Once completed, you will be required to set your preferences such as default language. Furthermore, you will be required to input your Google account credentials. (You can create one if you don’t have). Note that you can use your existing Gmail ID and password for this step.
- Once it is verified, you will be at the home screen where some pre-installed apps will be listed.
- From your PC’s web browser, download the latest Showbox APK file.
- To install from the APK file, there are multiple ways. If your installation was correct, you can just double click on the APK file and Bluestacks will automatically install the app. If that does not work, open the APK file with “apk-handler.exe” which is located in “C:\Program Files\Bluestacks” folder.
Once you have installed the app, you can go to the home screen of Bluestacks where you will see the app listed. Click on the icon to launch the app and enjoy your favorite shows and movies!
