However, there are already hundreds of apps available on the internet that provides live tv. Some of them are totally free to use while a few of them can be used after purchasing their membership.

Those apps could be very expensive but not as like the cable connection however still they cost money. This is the reason why I am here to provide my users with the best free TV application which is similar to Live NetTV. It comes with thousands of live channels that are not from only the USA, UK, or Canada.

However, Redbox doesn’t require a user to be in a specific country in case to access the content instead, it works on every continent and any country all over the world. You don’t need to create an account here or buy a membership etc as everything is free for everyone.

It might show various sorts of ads while watching live channels because this is the thing that helps them to earn some money and to keep Redbox alive. There is no way to stop their ads as they don’t offer any paid version so you have to use it along with the ads.
