How to stream torrented movies on iOS 8 without jailbreaking



Popcorn Time is finally out for iOS, giving iPad and iPhone users direct access to “The Netflix of Pirated Movies” service for the first time ever. There’s just one catch: it requires a jailbreak.

Over 50% of iPhone and iPad users have already upgraded to iOS 8 and a jailbreak isn’t coming out anyday soon, but if you want to stream movies to your iOS device you’re still in luck.  A competing service called MovieBox does pretty much the exact same thing as Popcorn Time, and you can get it on your iPhone 6 and 6 Plus 8 without needing to jailbreaking.

Here’s how to install it:


First: Go to Settings >> General >> Date & Time. Deselect Automatic and change the date to September 16th
Second: Open Safari and visit this page
Third: Tap the green button to install Movie Box
Fourth: Open MovieBox after it has installed and tap Trust on the developer notice
Fifth: Return to Settings >> General >> Date & Time and switch back to Automatic

Enjoy streaming movie torrents straight to the bigger than big screen on your iPhone 6 Plus.

Note: The current version of MovieBox isn’t supported on the iOS 8.1 beta and won’t install.
