MovieBox is a third party app, which allows you to stream and download the latest Movies, Documentaries, and Tv Shows without paying a dime. It uses direct link streaming service, which means that it downloads the file directly from the uploaded site and streams it to your device. It is a simple to use app, with a very friendly UI and a lot of cool features. It allows you to Stream and Download Movies, to choose between different streaming resolution, starting from 360p, 480p or 720p. It has different servers for each movie or tv show, so if a server has problems or is overload, you can switch to another one. You can save your favorite tv shows or movies for easy access and even download popular music videos. It is packed with features and is available for free, that is one of the main reasons why It is very popular among jailbreak users.
