Your devices are ready now. It’s time to connect them before starting streaming Showbox content.

So first, ensure to connect your Android and Roku to the same Wi-Fi network.

Return to your Android. You have to minimize or hide the “All Screen” first, then launch the Showbox app.

There is a long list of content to choose from. One of the best things I like about Showbox is that it releases content almost at the same time as it comes out worldwide.

So, just find your favorite movie. Then, tap on the three-dotted icon next to its quality section.

Remember to change the player option from VLC to another player.

Next, press “Watch Now.” A notification will show up and ask if you want to display the movie with the “All Screen” app.
