iOS: Yesterday, the popular streaming app Popcorn Time made its way to iOS on jailbroken devices. If you’re not jailbroken but still want to get in on the action, MovieBox is a similar app that you can install on any device.
MovieBox works a lot like Popcorn Time in that you can browse through a bunch of popular movies and tv shows and then start streaming them right away. From there, you can select the quality of the stream you want, then start watching. While MovieBox doesn’t require a jailbreak, it does require a workaround to install it. Here’s what you need to do:
- Go to Settings > General > Date & Time and change the date to September 16
- Open Safari and go to http://www.pgyer.com/moviebox
- Tap the green button to download to MovieBox
- Open MovieBox
- Return to Settings > General > Date & Time and turn on Automatic
Once it’s installed, you should be able to stream movies right away.
