Hi, so i want to use movie box to watch some movies on my phone but i have a question.
Obviously it is illegal to download the movies but is it illegal to watch them.
I dont want to get in any trouble with the law or my isp.

Technically, yes, movie box is illegal. You are streaming a movie/tv show without the original owner's permission. MovieBox does not have the rights to show owner's copyrighted material.

As for getting caught, however, the chances are slim to none. I have been using it for over 2 years, and nobody has said anything to me. I'm sure as long as you don't go boasting around the officials, nobody will say anything.

About 1/2 a year ago, I used to torrent movies onto my computer. That was a horrible mistake as I didn't try to hide my IP address or anything. About 2 months into downloading movies, I received a letter in the mail from my ISP stating that I have been caught downloading illegal content and if I did not delete it and kept on downloading, I would be fined. As you can see, I have been using MovieBox for a long time before my torrenting days.
