iOS 8.1 (non jb) "Movie Box could not be downloaded at this time" - what to do?

24
Found 24th Jan 2015
Hi guys,

I had a link to Moviebox and Showtime Anytime for non jailbroken iOS devices that I've lost and can't find.
My iPad restarted which resulted in the apps crashing on startup. All my attempts at reinstalling from the links I googled end in the error message "Movie box could not be downloaded at this time".
I didn't have any luch with iOS 8.0, installed 8.1 and still having the same problem.
Any tips to get these to work again will be greatly appreciated, thanks !

Nothing wrong about posting a link, surely?
Well, this one at least gets to the stage when I have the movie box icon and then the same message about ńot being able to download pops up

sounds like your broadband provider is blocking the site. You may have to use a VPN

I've had this problem, my fella put it on his but I can't get it on mine but managed to get one called playboxhd, but then I tried putting it on my kids iPads and it won't go on theirs.

I'll see if I can beat it then. Stop being a thieving, freeloader and pay for something that you want. No excuse nowadays, plenty of paid for streaming services available.

I agree. Can't be doing with all the folk who think that just because they can watch movies for free, it's not theft. They think they're clever. If they really were clever, they'd have a better job and would be able to afford sky movies or netflix or whatever.

Use a vpn download always works.

Get a life, you two. You don't really think your opinion matters to people who couldn't care less about you, do you?
Ironically, I have bought more films since discovering Movie Box than ever before but you are probably too narrow minded to understand.

Would you like to explain how, because I don't agree with theft (which is exactly what this is), I have no life? I have a very nice life, thanks. A good job, wife, 2 kids, and I work hard so that I can afford luxuries like film subscriptions. I don't feel that if there is something that I can't afford, I am entitled to just take it. Unlike all the freeloaders who use things like Moviebox.
I imagine most are on benefits of some kind.

Couldn't of said it better myself. Also amusing that said people come on here asking how to do it etc. clearly not the brightest of individuals.

Isn't it funny how posts like this bring out people who feel the need to tell everyone what good jobs they have? It's not about not being to afford something, you're wrong. If moviebox was a paid subscription service it would be unrivalled. I find Netflix very overrated, same with Sky. The only service I use regularly is Blinkbox but they too are limited.
So I carry on in my wicked ways, watch films on Moviebox and more often than not if a film is good I will order a blue ray.

Your spelling does not make you seem all that bright, either.

Spelling? Please elaborate. And if we're playing the pedantic game it's spelt 'blu-ray'.

A typo, well spotted.
It's "have" not "of". Couldn't have said it better, not couldn't of said it better.

Good for you but not everyone can afford silly Sky/Virgin subscriptions (or aren't stupid enough to fall for it). And Netflix? What a heap of crap that is in the UK, or do you DNS it to USA? If so, that is thieving.

If you wanted to watch whatever you wanted, the amount of subscriptions you must be tied into must be astronomical!

I think you'll find that is a grammatical error and not a spelling mistake. But i'll concede, congratulations you won the internet!

Well done you have used the age old argument winning tactic of the internet to pick up on spelling (or in this case grammatical) error.

But none of this takes away the fact that you are a thief.

So are you saying being poor is an excuse to steal things that you cannot afford? I learnt that I had to save for something if I couldn't afford to buy it, not just take it. What an interesting view you have on theft. I do hope you don't share you values with any children?

And I will add before this thread gets closed that frankly the mods should be removing these types of threads as soon as they start. The website, by allowing them to stay is simply condoning piracy which is very disappointing.

You didn't answer the question

Nope I think children are a waste of money and time, as I need to save up for a Sky Movies contract.
