MoviePass Cuts Price to $ 6.95 Per Month for a Limited Time
MoviePass made a splash a few months ago when they launched a new $ 10 a month service that gave subscribers access to a nearly unlimited number of movies in theaters. If you thought it was crazy, they now offer a subscription tier for just $ 6.95 a month for those willing to pay to watch the movie a year ahead of schedule.
The new plan costs $ 89.95 including a $ 6.55 processing fee, which is roughly $ 6.95 per month ($ 7.50 per month if you include the fee). This is less than the national average for a movie, and less than half the cost of a ticket if you live in a metropolis. What’s the catch? This is a time-limited offer that probably won’t last too long, so don’t hesitate if you know you’ll be using the service for at least a year. Watching just one movie a month makes the new deal a total theft. It is available to both current and new customers.
Now, you might be wondering if MoviePass is worth it or if it works at all. Rest assured – I signed up the day they announced the $ 10 price cut and I, along with a few others, have used it several times over the last couple of months and across multiple networks. So it works! Of course, some people had minor problems with the service. Things like the long wait for your MoviePass card to arrive in the mail (a physical card is needed to watch movies with the service) and the occasional GPS problems that MoviePass uses to find out if you’re really in a movie theater. There was also recent news that MoviePass has changed the terms of service, suggesting it won’t last much longer and that they are guilty of attracting customers under a false pretense. It reads:
MoviePass reserves the right to change the rules for movie attendance and ticket availability for members at any time in connection with the Service. MoviePass reserves the right to change from time to time the number of eligible films a member can watch per month. MoviePass reserves the right to offer members a new pricing option if they exceed the number of views of a certain number of films per month.
But this change turned out to be untrue. Such agencies as the News for Shoppers, quickly pointed out that «MoviePass uses this language for more than a year. This is nothing new. ” The existing defensive language is likely to keep people from abusing an already cheap service.
Some theater chains, such as AMC, continue to struggle with subscriptions , but this has proven difficult. However, many local theater chains welcome this service , claiming that it will increase traffic, especially in smaller venues. MoviePass surpassed 600,000 subscribers in October and continues to grow. This new proposal may well make them a real force to be reckoned with in the world of cinema.
