BoxOffice works on a transactional rental basis in that you can select and watch movies, short movies and documentaries that are made available on the viewing platform from time to time. Every selected content you want to rent to watch must first be paid for. After you’ve successfully rented content on BoxOffice, you cannot cancel it. 

Every content you rent on BoxOffice would be available for 48 hours, and in that time, you watch the movie, short movie or documentary as many times as you can. You can rent up to 20 movies and other related content at a time. You can, however, download the content you rented on BoxOffice if you’re accessing BoxOffice through Explora; but you must first subscribe to the BoxOffice download option. With the download option, you can have access to watch the downloaded content, again and again, because you’ll have access to the downloaded content for 30 days. Online BoxOffice customers do not enjoy this service. 

To get the best out of your BoxOffice account, you’ll want to fund your BoxOffice account with some cash so you don’t have to make a payment every time you want to rent a movie. This means that the fees when you’re renting content on BoxOffice would be deducted from your prepaid balance in your BoxOffice account. 

If you encounter any challenge whatsoever concerning BoxOffice, you should reach out to the customer support department by calling the BoxOffice call centre, which is +23412703232.
