Many have asked whether or not Show Box is available for download on mobile devices. Because it’s software is not compatible with iOS, it cannot be installed on an iPhone or iPad.

However, Kodi, Popcorn Time, and many other similar streaming applications can.

To do so, we must side-load an iOS app called TweakBox to the device. To learn how to install TweakBox on a mobile device, follow the link below:

    My downloader is stuck, I’ve typed in the URL and it just says connecting. Been stuck for over ten mins now I just downloaded the new Kodi update 17.6 which worked fine but now the downloader isn’t working. Same with TTV when I tried.

      Hi Sam, try restarting both your router and Fire TV. Unplug each for a few minutes and then plug back in. Also, make sure you have enough storage left on your device.

    Hi Troy , i am having a very strange issue with ShowBox on my fire stick ! ! When i play a movie or tv show and put it on pause for awhile , then go back to play , it starts again and in a minute or less it opens up my KODI and starts playing the movie or TV show from the beginning in there ! Any suggestions ? I have even went back and installed old versions of ShowBox without updating and it still does it !

    When I try to watch trailers, message comes up that says, Unsupported Browser Link and Fire TV doesn’t open browser links. Is there any way around this?

    • Brett June 5, 2018 at 8:35 am - Reply


      It may be trying to use YouTube or a Browser. Try installing a Browser and YouTube and see if that helps.

    Greetings Troy, any thoughts on why Show Box buffers a lot, is there fix for that? And thanks for all your guides, very easy to understand and very thorough!

      Hi Douglas,

      Are you using a VPN? It could be your ISP throttling service if not.

      Hi Tammy, no, that was an April Fools joke by Kodi. Seems like they pull a prank every year like this.
