MoviePass Now Limiting Subscribers to a Choice of Six Movies Each Day

MoviePass today announced new restrictions for its ever-changing movie service, with the company now limiting its subscribers to a choice of what appears to be six to seven movies per day.

On the MoviePass site, MoviePass lists "This Week's Movies," a section described as a "full lineup of movie titles available on MoviePass in the coming days."


For this Friday, that includes Mile 22, Christopher Robin, The Miseducation of Cameron Post, We The Animals, Skate Kitchen, Juliet Naked, and Summer of 84. Noticeably missing is Crazy Rich Asians, which won't be available until Sunday, and some of the movies seem to be limited distribution films not available in all areas.


Several popular movies that have already been released are not included for Friday, such as Mission: Impossible - Fallout, Mamma Mia, and Ant-Man.

MoviePass in early August restructured its subscription model to allow customers to see three movies per month for the $9.95 monthly fee. Prior to that, MoviePass had announced that it would raise its base subscription price to $14.95 per month, and before that, it introduced peak pricing and restricted major film releases, all in an attempt to stop hemorrhaging money.


For now, MoviePass seems to have settled on the $9.95 per month plan for three movies a month, while also restricting the movies available to customers each day.

I'm so tired of hearing about this company. Can they just go away like we all know they're going to?

No matter how you slice and dice it, restrict it or change the terms, if they had one customer that saw one movie a month, they'd still lose money. Buying an item at full price and selling it for cheaper has never been a business model that worked out for long.

Another day, another change in business model from MoviePass. How predictable.

Next week's new rules: "When you want to see a movie, you just log into your new MoviePass checking account and load some of your money onto your MoviePass debit card. Then you use that debit card to go purchase a movie ticket. We wanted to make it easier on our customers, and we know that everyone already has bank accounts and debit/credit cards, so it'll be familiar and exciting all at the same time. So yeah, that's our new rules. You basically pay full price for every movie you see, but you use your MoviePass debit card which costs $9.95 a month. We think you'll love our new rules. Thanks for being a MoviePass subscriber. Stay tuned for new (and worse) rules next week."
