Showbox is a controversial app that has a big history on Android devices. Like Popcorn Time, Showbox is an app that’s all about streaming movies and TV shows for free over the internet. Now, I gotta tell you, it’s not exactly legal, but that hasn’t stopped Showbox from gaining a massive following online. People love that they can easily stream new releases, from big blockbuster hits to those cool indie films. So, if you’re okay with using some, ahem, less than legal methods for getting your entertainment, Showbox is a great choice.

Here’s the thing though – Showbox is only available on your smartphone, which means you can’t easily watch it on a bigger screen. And that can totally ruin movie night, right? I mean, who wants to huddle around a tiny smartphone screen? So, today I’m gonna show you how to use Showbox with your Chromecast and cast the image to your TV. Problem solved!

Let’s Talk About the Legal Stuff

Before we go any further, let me just say that Showbox is not exactly a legal service. Now, I know piracy laws differ depending on where you live, but in the United States, using Showbox is definitely illegal. Most ISPs in the US keep an eye out for people using illegal services on their networks, and while you might get away with it most of the time, Showbox seems to attract more attention than other torrent interfaces. Now, I’m not here to tell you what to do, but I just wanna make sure you understand the risks involved. If you do decide to use Showbox, be aware that your ISP or the MPAA (that’s a group of movie studio folks) might come knocking. They’ve been known to sue people who use pirated content, so it’s not something to take lightly.

If you’re still keen on using Showbox, there’s one thing you can do to lower your chances of getting caught – get a VPN (that stands for Virtual Private Network). You can find some great VPN options in our recommended list. It’s important to note though, when you use a VPN and cast Showbox to your Chromecast, the VPN might not cover the stream. So, you might wanna think about adding the VPN to your home network to protect all your internet activity.

Now, let’s get to the good stuff – how to cast Showbox!

Okay, so technically, Showbox does have a PC version that you can use with an Android emulator. But most people are all about the Android version of the app, and for good reason. Showbox is basically an Android app that also has versions for other platforms, mostly by using emulation. Unfortunately, Google doesn’t allow Showbox in the Play Store because of its pirating abilities. But don’t worry, you can still get the Android app directly from the Showbox.fun website. Just go to their site and look for the Android version of the app. It’s an APK installer that you can download and then you just need to enable the ability to install apps from unknown sources in your phone’s settings. Easy peasy.

To get the app up and running on your Android phone, you’ll have to allow installations from sources outside of the Play Store. Don’t worry, it’s easy! First, let’s open up your device’s settings. To do this, just slide down from the top of your screen to open the notifications tray and quick actions. Once you’ve done that, look for the Settings icon and tap on it.

Now, it’s time to scroll down to the bottom of the settings page. Keep going until you see an option called “Apps & Notifications.” It should be near the top of the list. This is where we want to be!

Now, this section might not have a bunch of choices, but don’t worry. Under the “Advanced” section, you’ll find a switch labeled “Apps from Unknown Sources.” Go ahead and flip that switch to the on position.

And that’s it! You’re all done in the settings menu. Now you’re ready to install the app and enjoy all its awesome features. Happy exploring!

Once you’ve installed the app on your device, you’ll discover a sleek Android interface that makes it a breeze to explore the latest movies and TV shows. The app has a sharp appearance that perfectly matches the aesthetic we associate with Android apps. When you navigate through the Showbox app’s lineup on Android, it feels as smooth as browsing through Google Play Movies. By selecting a movie, you’re presented with a stunning showcase of information, featuring vibrant images, the option to stream in different resolutions, links to the trailer, and a description of the film. And here’s the best part: using the Android app to stream your favorite movies and TV shows is incredibly easy.

Unfortunately, using the app with Chromecast presents a significant problem: you can’t cast directly from the application because it lacks the built-in Cast protocol. This means you’ll have to rely on external sources and install another app on your phone to enable casting on the platform.

Thankfully, there are several options available, such as popular casting apps like AllCast. Any video casting app should suffice for the method we’re about to explain, but we suggest using a specific application for casting Showbox: LocalCast.

Stream Showbox to Chromecast Using LocalCast

Even though Showbox doesn’t come with a built-in Chromecast feature, you can still watch its videos on your TV by combining it with an app called LocalCast. To get started, make sure you have Showbox installed on your phone and then go to the Google Play Store to download LocalCast for Chromecast. LocalCast is a free app for Android devices that supports casting of both local videos and streams to your Chromecast device. The best part is, you don’t need a player with Cast support. While there are premium plans available, we recommend using LocalCast because it doesn’t limit the length of your streaming sessions and it won’t interrupt your experience with ads.

To use LocalCast with Showbox, you’ll first need to access the settings menu within Showbox. Simply slide open the menu from the left side of your screen and select “Settings” at the bottom. Then, choose “Other Player” from the drop-down menu for default players. While you’re not specifically choosing LocalCast as your player at this point, opting for “Other Player” prompts Showbox to ask Android for the list of video players installed on your phone.

To get that cool interface, just go back to the Showbox main menu. Then, choose the movie or show that you want to watch. Click on “Watch Now” and wait for the video to load. Your Android device will ask you to pick a video player to stream with. That’s when you can choose LocalCast as your player. I recommend selecting “Just Once” each time unless you always want to cast to your TV whenever you watch something on Showbox.

Once you’ve chosen LocalCast, the app will open up and ask you to pick a device to cast to. Make sure you choose your Chromecast from the list. Then, the LocalCast player interface will appear on your device. You won’t be using the regular Showbox interface anymore. Instead, you’ll use LocalCast like a remote control to play your video. You can also find cast controls in your notification tray once the video starts playing.

As I sit here, waiting for the TV to come to life, I notice that LocalCast has synced up and is starting to connect to a web address. This is the magical Showbox stream, which can sometimes take a whole thirty seconds to start streaming. But don’t worry! Once it starts, you can sit back, relax, and dive into your beloved movies and TV shows on the glorious big screen.
