To most people, watching your favorite shows on your TV in the comfort of your home on a lazy Sunday afternoon beats having to squint at your 5’’ phone screen. This is mainly because an HD TV brings out the best in terms of quality, and the overall entertainment value is multiplied ten-fold.
Although ShowBox has been a mainly Android-compatible app, advances in tech have recently made it available for other operating systems, including the IOS and PC, and now, you can also watch all your favorite shows on your Smart TV.
How to Install ShowBox for Smart TV
With these few easy steps, you will be well on your way to enjoying all the best ShowBox features.
- Most Smart TVs don’t allow downloads from third party sources. This is mainly due to the fact that many of these sources just fill your device with malware and unwanted ads, and are not considered reliable. This is why the first and most important step is to ensure that you get your ShowBox app from their official site.
- The next step is to enable the ‘unknown sources’ option on your device. Most Android-based devices have this option. What you need to do is find the settings on your Smart TV, this option is usually at the top, and all you need to do is move it to the right to enable it.
- At this point, you will be able to download the ShowBox app without any problems. If you have found a reliable source, download the latest version of the app. Note that it depends on your device capability. Some devices can only work with lesser versions, so if you are having trouble running the latest version then you can try a lesser one and upgrade later. They work pretty much the same.
- Once the download is complete, go to the menu page on your Smart TV, you’ll see the ShowBox.apk file extension. This is an indication that the download was successful. Now all you need to do is click on install to complete the process. This process usually takes an average of fewer than five minutes, give or take, but other variables like how fast your internet connection is, or how fast your device can process may also affect the time it takes to download and install. The process differs substantially from one device to another.
ShowBox is compatible with a variety of Smart TV brands, anything from Hisense to TCL, Samsung, LG, and Sony. Most Android-based Smart TVs can access this app. What you need to keep in mind is the fact that some versions work better on different brands. For instance, the 4.9 apk version may not be as effective as the 5.2 version on selected brands. So if you are still getting an error message after downloading a certain version, it may not be because the app doesn’t work on your Smart TV, you just need to try a different version.
