    Really enjoy this app. I heard it doesn't work from Cydia. Is there a similar app that works well ? Want to know Pryor to jail breaking. Thanks.

    HD Cinema no longer works. I'm currently using Moviebox and Cartoon HD.

    XMBC (Kodi), add the superrepo source and you will have all the movie/tvshow/live tv channel you can handle

    I've given up using xbmc (Kodi) and for the mean time I use the app PlayBox.

    My chromecast has never had so much use until I found PlayBox:D and it works flawlessly. It's strange none of the other apps like MovieBox, Cartoon HD or even KODI haven't implemented such a feature to cast to chromecast.:confused: Its also saved me buying an Apple TV.

    The frustration I had with xbmc now Kodi was the constant dealing with broken stream links! from duff repos or the constant buffering because memory was low and general clunkyness of navi x etc. I get none of this with PlayBox. The only thing is their app seems to be down at the moment and according to their facebook they are fixing it- that means although it still works for me, the movie listings are no longer being updated as of a few weeks ago but that's fine with me as the library is vast.

    Although I do have popcorn time on my Mac, but seriously nothing beats clicking an app on my iPhone/iPad finding a movie you want to watch and bang instant stream.

    Is there a link or a repo for HomeCinema? I went to the main site and the iOS download link has been removed.

    HD Cinema will no longer be available for IOS. Dev will only support Android.

    There is one in the AppStore right now that I'm surprised is still there. It's called cloud movies. It's not perfect, but it's nice if you aren't jailbroken.

    Are you using MovieBox 3? Did you also install MovieBox 3 Enhancer and enable all switches in Settings?

    I was running the latest version of movie box. I guess it was 3.2.3. I was told that downgrading may fix the error message when trying to stream. I can download the movies and then watch them on the apple tv but its the only way. I have no idea how to downgrade. Just tried going to pgyers web page and I can't get it to download. Gonna just reinstall it from cydia. Im having an issue with some movies just saying why also not option to watch or download. Tried doing the vpn thing with different websites still no success

    Getting decent reviews too.
    I am a bit surprised Apple approved of this app.
    Time will tell if it remains.
