Is it Any Good?
OneBox HD dates back to 2017 and was once a very popular Android tv streaming application. Surprisingly, this app is still great if you are looking for a simple, one-click movie and TV show app. This is a great alternative to Cinema HD, Terrarium TV, Showbox, and Cyberflix because the app is built on a different architecture, so when those apps have problems, there is a good chance this one is still working fine.

What Does it Do?
OneBox HD has a script of inbuilt scrapers which check for new titles online through a set series of websites and torrent sites. The scrapers then return these results within the application and match it to cover art. In large part, the success of an application depends on the quality of their scraper. OneBox provides more limited results than many of the other apps, but the nice part is most of the content plays well.
OneBox HD also allows you to download content and watch offline.
YOUR INTERNET ACTIVITY IS BEING WATCHED
ReviewVPN cannot attest to the legality, security and privacy of the applications discussed on this site. It is highly recommended that you use a VPN service while streaming or using Kodi.
Currently, your IP 220.127.116.11 is visible to everyone and your Browser is being tracked by Advertisers & ISP Provider.
Here are the main reasons why you must use a VPN:
- Your activities are hidden from your ISP, the government, and from the apps you are using.
- You can access additional movies and TV streams.
- ISP attempts to throttle are thrwarted thus reducing buffering issues.
- Geographically restricted content like Netflix and Hulu can be unblocked.
A VPN works be replacing your ISP-assigned IP address and creating an encrypted tunnel. We recommend the no log service offered by IPVanish. It works well on a Firestick and offers the fastest possible speeds.

Is it Safe to Use?
OneBox HD has been around for some time and is quite safe to use. Always make sure you download it from their official website or alternatively the Amazon store.
Is it Legal or Grey?
It’s a grey area but not by much. Android streaming apps keep the heat away by making sure they never host or serve the content themselves, which is why they get taken down much less than torrent sites. However, the content that they are allowing users to watch to all intents and purposes is not legal. So, you should use with caution or better still just get a VPN and stay hidden.
Should I Use This App With a VPN?
We always recommend using a VPN whether you are using One Box or just browsing the internet for a number of reasons:
- Firstly, a VPN will keep your data safe and encrypted while you are online. Many parties including your Internet Service Provider would love to get their hands on your data. ISP’s actually stored records of your browsing data for up to a year. Through encryption, your ISP and any other third party will be unable to discover what you are doing online
- You can keep yourself anonymous through a VPN which will prevent your Ip from being leaked and anybody tracing you back to your physical location
- A VPN allows you to access region-restricted content wherever you are in the world. Giving you access to hundreds if not thousands over servers across multiple countries globally

There are alternatives when it comes to android streaming apps for movies and tv shows, here is an in-depth explanation for two of our favorites:
ReviewVPN.com does not host any of these files. They are hosted on Archive.org.
CyberFlix: Cyberflix in terms of support and the community around is probably the biggest Android TV streaming application and closes to the heart of purists looking for a free experience. It has a great UI and is 100% free without any adverts whatsoever, there is a massive selection of tv shows and films, you can download content and watch offline, find HD links easily, as well as access a great smart search capability as well as an inbuilt TV calendar similar to what Terrarium users would be used to, so you can see when the next episode of your favorite TV show is coming out.
OneBox HD is an old app at this point, but it still excels where it matters. It remains one of the best apps available for free movies and TV shows. It is simple to install and use on your Firestick or Android device. It is a testament to its developers that this app has continued to work well with no updates for almost two years. Very few apps can make a similar claim.
If you are looking for a new free movie and TV show app, you should definitely check it out. This is especially true if the Terrarium Tv clones like Cyberflix, Cat Mouse, and Typhoon Tv are acting up.
