MovieBox is a prevalent streaming app specially designed for users to watch movies and TV Shows online via iOS or Android device. Even so, we here just focus on MovieBox not working on iOS gadgets problem. Because the MovieBox stopped working often occurs on iOS 8 (.0/1/2/3/4...), iOS 9 (.1/2/3/3) and iOS 10 devices, especially on iPhone and iPad. Any time MovieBox stopped working, try the following methods. If the first one doesn't work, move to the next. 

Method #1: Rerun MovieBox/iDevice
Force close MovieBox app and restart it again, or restart your iDevice to try it again; Turn off your iPhone or iPad and reboot it to check whether MovieBox works normally.

Method #2: Change Time (mainly for iOS 8.1.3/8.3 or later)
Go to Settings -> General -> Date & Time. Turn off "Set Automatically" and switch the date to September 1, 2014. Then rerun MovieBox again and define the previous time setting to "Set Automatically" again. This action aims at bypassing the expired security certificate of MovieBox. Because altering the Time essentially tricks iPhone/iPad into taking the certificate is still valid, thus allowing it to run.

Method #3: Use a VPN to Alternatively Connect to MovieBox
Find a free VPN service online, go to its homepage to take a note of the server, (PPTP) user name & password, and then add VPN on your device:
• iPhone/iPod: Settings -> General -> VPN -> Settings -> select "PPTP" -> fill in VPN Sever/Account/Password, "Auto" encryption level and select "Send All Traffic" - Save
• iPad: Settings -> General -> Network -> VPN -> Add VPN Configuration -> select "PPTP" -> fill in Description/Server/Account/Password, "OFF" RSA SecurID, "Auto" encryption level and select "Send All Traffic" - Save

Method #4: Reinstall MovieBox
