Entertainment is one of the most important things in our lives, if not the most. Throughout the ages, people around the world have devised different ways to entertain each other.
Among those, motion pictures or more commonly movies, have been arguably the most successful.
Many filmmakers have taken their shot at creating the most intriguing piece of entertainment that they possibly could have and one has been better than the other all throughout the timeline. But then came technology.
The Influence of Modern Technology on Entertainment
Modern technology today has made possible today what people couldn’t even imagine. And where has it been more evident than in the realm of entertainment?
High definition videos with crisp audio that goes along with it. And more than that, it is the internet, that has fired things up in the most profound of ways. Now, from the very comfort of your home, you will be able to enjoy movies from anywhere in the world.
That is where the different video streaming services come in.
And by the title of this piece, it’s obvious to me that if you’re here reading this article, then you must be a movie buff.
So, you’ve decided that you want to get your fill of entertainment from 2 very high-quality streaming services: CinemaBox and the PlayBox HD, among which you want to subscribe to the best.
Read along and by the end of this, you’ll know which one of these 2 will suit you the best.
What Goes into Making a Video Streaming Service Brilliant
In order to put forth a proper comparison between two video streaming services- the CinemaBox and the PlayBox HD, it’s important that I make it clear what a video streaming service that is worth its money should provide.
Well, there can be multiple parameters for that and the importance of each of the might vary, depending on whom you ask.
But as always, some of these will be more important than the others. So with that in mind, I’ve picked some of the most important criteria.
- An expanse of the content library: Well, isn’t this obvious? You’ll only go for that streaming service which can give you access to the most number of shows. I know I will want to make my choice from a wide selection of movies and TV shows.
- The UI and UX: When you’re back home trying to relax and want to watch a movie or a TV show, the last thing you want is a difficult interface which makes getting to your favorite shows tedious. So as for the interface, the simpler the better.
- Sharing: This is also very important, both from the perspective of the user and the producer of the shows. More the shares, the better it is for promotion and the users can have fun with it as well.
- Availability of Local Content: Even if you like watching shows from around the world, there will always be a special place for local movies and such in our hearts. A good streaming service has to keep that in mind.
Well, if these are in place then the deal is good. And both CinemaBox and the PlayBox HD bring these qualities to the table in different proportions.
But there are differences and which matter a lot overall. So, now let’s pit up CinemaBox and PlayBox HD against each other and see which fairs the best.
The Major Differences b/w CinemaBox and PlayBox HD
Let me make this clear that I personally like both of these and am not biased in any way. One has some good things here, and the other there.
Check out the comparison that I’ve put together here. I’ve categorized these on the basis of the different quality factors. With that, you can make the most informed decision possible when purchasing the subscription.
The Content Library and How it Looks
The first impression matters quite a bit, believe it or not. Especially when you have a lot of different options at hand.
Once you open up a streaming service to check for which show it is that you want to watch, what you come across is the content library where all or most of the content available are on display.
Well, CinemaBox first.
This app does a great job of organizing and then putting on display the different shows available. You can get a mini movie poster over the name and the selection of the show that makes the presentation of the list a lot better than usual.
That is somehow not available with PlayBox and the display of the library is a little more cluttered.
Streaming Speed and Quality
High-definition videos are a must. That makes the experience of watching movies a lot more interesting.
As such, every streaming service out there provides this, including the 2 we’re currently comparing. But it’s not that simple, as there are differences between how these 2 do in this field.
CinemaBox is definitely a bit behind on this parameter and you might have some issues every once in a while. The quality of streaming might fluctuate and for worst case scenarios, it’ll slow down quite a bit.
But, PlayBox HD does a great job in this with absolutely seamless streaming of the various shows available. You can have a totally seamless experience while you’re watching your favorite movies and TV shows.
Media Sharing Capabilities
If there be some show or an episode of it that you really like, and so you want to share it with your friends and family, a good media sharing system can make that happen in the best way possible.
And believe it or not, a lot of users prefer this. And also, the different production houses are in on it as well for the obvious promotional opportunities it can bring.
PlayBox HD takes the lead on this as well with flawless sharing capabilities that you can get with this. You’ll be able to easily share your favorite episodes that you want to, from your computer with anybody that you might want to.
As for CinemaBox, since it doesn’t allow you to download the files, so if you need to share anything, you’ll have to do it through the platform itself. That’s the limitation there with CinemaBox, which isn’t there with PlayBox HD.
The User Interface
The user interface that both of these apps have are a lot similar. But there are subtle differences from the visual perspective which can be ‘not so subtle’ when you take a look at the functionality that goes along with it.
How’s that you ask?
Well, when it comes to Playbox HD you’ll have the download button to download files right to your hard drive. That makes the process rather simple, which is a good thing.
But, CinemaBox doesn’t have the download feature. You can only sync up the show you want to watch. And on the interface of it, you’ll have a complete list of all the shows that you’ve synced which might be good or bad depending on the preferences of the user.
Wrapping it Up
Now you know all the major differences that are there between PlayBox HD and CinemaBox. And after going through all of this, I believe it wouldn’t be fair to say one is better than the other.
As to be honest, both of these are pretty good.
So, your best bet will be to write down what you want from the streaming service that you’re paying for and then tally it up with the different deals that you’re going to get from these two. And then, just take your pick.
And on the other side of that choice, interesting shows are there for you to enjoy.
