Showbox and Popcorn Time are two Android apps free of charge, used for watching movies and TV shows for free. The two film companies TBV Productions and Hunter Killer Productions, targeted Aptoide with a lawsuit for promoting and sustaining the use of the two apps for copyright infringement purposes. Consequently, Aptoide eliminated both Showbox and Popcorn Time from its Android store. So, how to download Showbox and Popcorn Time now?
Showbox and Popcorn Time Eliminated By Aptoide
Aptoide is known for being a third-party Android apps store. Aptoide is the most popular Google Play Store alternative since it does not have a unique and centralized store, but users can manage their own app stores. The Aptoide platform software has over 6 billion downloads, and over 200 million users use the app.
On the other hand, Showbox and Popcorn Time are two apps that allow users to watch mainstream movies and TV shows from the BitTorrent protocol or some other sources. The two film companies that intended the lawsuit state that one of the claims is that Aptoide declared the apps as “100% safe,” meaning they are free of malicious software.
If you are now trying to download the two apps from Aptoide, an error will occur – this is the response from Aptoide to the lawsuit. Additionally, if you are trying to find other Showbox and Popcorn Time alternatives, you will notice that they also disappeared from the app marketplace.
