ShowBox recently revealed the name of the most watched show on the app ever since the service started working again a couple of weeks ago. In their own words:

Now, the team behind ShowBox has shared the reason behind not offering latest movies currently. In a tweet sent out just a few hours back, they said they only want high quality stuff to be made available to ShowBox users.
The reason #ShowBox doesn’t have the latest movies at the moment is because we only want the best of quality on our app
Here’s their complete statement:
The reason #ShowBox doesn't have the latest movies at the moment is because we only want the best of quality on our app meaning the CAM videos you see on other apps are not at the quality we want as because they are just not enjoyable in our opinion.— Show Box App (@RealShowBox) December 19, 2018
So you see, the main reason is the user experience, which ShowBox team says is of the utmost importance to them. What do you think about it? Leave your opinion in the comments section below.
Showbox troubles recap
It was November-end when it came to light that after Moviebox (a free media streaming app for iOS devices), Showbox – which is for Android – has also stopped working. While at first it seemed like a small glitch, but then days passed by and situation remained unchanged.
After a Moviebox user claimed they received a response from developers that the app is being shut down, it was widely believed that Showbox developers have also pulled the plug on the app.
However, the app started working – with intermittent issues though – December 3 onward. One day prior to that, Showbox developers took to Twitter to explain what happened. They said due to legal issues their services have were declined.
Just in case you want to dive in deep, we covered in detail about the lawsuits that Showbox developers have been dealing with.
While the ShowBox situation seems to be back to normal now, we recently highlighted some major confusions and rumors that are still surrounding the app. For example, despite developers coming out publicly to announce that Showbox is back, a lot of users still aren’t aware of this development.
In addition, given the media coverage (2) on how using Showbox can land you (yes you, the end user) in legal trouble, it’s reasonable to assume a significant number of existing users would now be worried about their safety.
