    Have tried changing time and date but it is still not working. Using Android Note5. Have also downloaded latest amp version.

  26. Worst app ever i tried your tricks and tips but nothing . I uninstalled anw re downloaded but still nothing. Its nothing short of a crap app these days. It use to load movies or tv shows but would crash every few mins. Anoying. Shit and a waste of time, dont bother wit it !

  27. All the given solutions does’nt work!! Can’t watch my old time favorite tv series and some newly released movies due to error encountered during loading. And why is it that every time aa in EVERY moment i open the app it keeps on updating? Can’t it be done once in a day only or week? It’s quite ANNOYiNG! Always updating but the problems/issues are still not addressed! C’mon tech people of playbox, give us a WORKING solutions to these issues PLEASE! Work on it guys!

  28. Crankypants mcduff says

    Think the app is just shit. Used showbox and playbox for four yrs and playbox won’t work,i only keep playbic now cos they have more choice but now thats not up, FIX YOUR APP OR CLOSE IT DOWN.

  29. I too have the problem “sorry, an error occured while loading this movie”. I’m using Cinemabox HD. I’ve tried changing the date. That didn’t work. I tried uninstalling, and reinstalling, but that didn’t work either. This doesn’t happen on all movies. Some work, and some don’t. While I’m communicating, “Wonder Woman” is just the trailer, not the movie.
