Why I can’t able to stream movies or TV shows on ShowBox?
In some countries, streaming copyrighted content is completely illegal. Thereby, they block the video streams in most of the video streaming applications like ShowBox. This might be the reason for not streaming errors.
To overcome this problem, you need a VPN while streaming Showbox. What is VPN? VPN is a Virtual Private Network that creates a secure, encrypted connection, which can be thought of as a tunnel, between your device and a server operated by the VPN service.
By using a VPN, you will get access to all the illegal content on the internet. It actually hides or masks your IP from your ISP (Internet Service Provider). Be safe.
At first, I was completely restricted to stream video content from ShowBox. When ShowBox not loading video issue occurred that when I got aware of this VPN and used to check it out.
You won’t believe unless you experience. So, immediately I bought a NordVPN and ran on my Android device in the background. Now, I’m able to stream my favorite movies and TV shows from the same place I tried before without a VPN. It works 100%. NordVPN is absolutely anonymous and safe. Run NordVPN now.
What to do when ShowBox shows “Waiting to download”
Most probably the reason can be quite simple, it was due to updating the newest version of ShowBox. Few older version of the app got this issue quite often as soon as it was released but that was soon got corrected in the current version. Few users who had been using ShowBox on Firestick did face the issue so any users still using the older version and facing the issue update today.
Why ShowBox stream stopped suddenly and failed to connect to the network?
Are you experiencing this error on your ShowBox? Because you have a slow internet connection or connected to the dead network. ShowBox servers are fast enough and it fetches data from Torrents. Why am I saying this? Because Torrent sites won’t be down for long. In case, if they are down, it will be fixed in a few fractions of minutes. Don’t worry.
To avoid this error, please disconnect the network and try to reconnect after some time. The problem arises from your side, not from the ShowBox.
