MoviePass Is Now Restricting Which Movies You Can See

  • MoviePass new plan

MoviePass's latest change is another downer. Now, only six movies will be eligible for viewing each day.

Meanwhile, hot giant-shark pic "The Meg" will be available for MoviePass customers only on Thursday (Aug. 16) and next Monday (Aug. 20) over coming 10 days.

It follows MoviePass adjusting its rules earlier this week, applying a new cap on exactly how many showings subscribers will be able to attend.

MoviePass was founded in 2011, but took off past year after the analytics firm Helios and Matheson Analytics bought a majority stake in the company and lowered the subscription plan to $9.95 a month for entry into one film per day. After that, you'll have to pay up for your film tickets at a discounted price.

Quarterly and annual subscribers won't be affected by the three movie per month change until their plans come up for renewal, though they will still be impacted by this switch to six eligible films per day.

MoviePass has faced strong criticism from other movie ticket vendors, especially AMC, which has repeatedly called the service's business model unsustainable. One upside is that MoviePass is ending Peak Pricing and Ticket Verification, two of the previously-tried systems which proved particularly unpopular with users.

The restrictions are part of the company's transition to a new plan that allows customers to see only three movies a month. The company is going to release a schedule each week so people can plan ahead and figure out what days each movie is available.

In a message to subscribers Thursday, MoviePass said that during a "transition period" subscribers will have a selection of up to six films to choose from daily, "including a selection of major studio first-run films and independent releases".

"Because actual availability will change daily, we encourage our members to always check the MoviePass app before leaving for the theater", he said.
