What happened to Showbox and what is the best alternative? 

Showbox is a widely used app for watching the latest streaming movies and TV shows. And it was mostly used by the FireStick users. The app streams the contents from Netflix and amazon prime for free without any account or advertisements. It is a massive collection of movies and series. In recent times, the users are experiencing some issues in the Showbox app in watching free media content. The app is showing a black screen or error when the user tries to watch content.

Why was Showbox put down?

The servers that provided the content stopped function due to some issue, so Showbox is completely stopped. The Showbox also provided some illegal content that was against the law. There were also legal complaints against the websites that promoted Showbox and due to that, the promoters shut down the service. And many television distributors and production houses also filed a legal case against the website for providing the illegal content.
