As Showbox streams contents for free, it is not available officially on any platform. You have to download it as a third party app on all mediums. Roku has its own OS called Roku OS. Before there was a way to sideload apps into Roku and that method is deactivated by Roku. Hence, you will not be able to sideload any third party apps into Roku.

Disclaimer: Showbox might contain copyrighted contents and streaming them is against law. Also, there is a potential risk in using third-party apps as it might lead to data theft. If you still wish to use Showbox, then use it with a VPN like ExpressVPN.
