The unlimited MoviePass plan that conquered our hearts is now dead and the deal
The last step that could make your inner Lando leave Cloud City: Even if you're for If you've paid for an annual subscription and need to keep your unlimited plan, MoviePass is now forcing you to its monthly three-movie-per-month plan ̵
Although MoviePass has said so before If you follow the terms of your annual subscription plan until your next billing cycle, customers will be notified by email today that these "terms" actually allow them to change the contract ahead of time , Here's what's important:
To make the injury worse, MoviePass says you only have until August 31 – a week from today – if you want to get some of your money back in the form of a pro-rated refund that you can only get by canceling your plan. And to make things even more ridiculous, MoviePass asks your FOMO: If you make the refund, you will not be able to sign up for MoviePass again for nine months.
Otherwise, MoviePass says it sets your annual subscription fee to the monthly plan, so you do not have to pay until it expires.
A CNET reader sent us before and after the billing page images in his own MoviePass app, which seems to confirm that MoviePass has begun to convert annual subscriptions into monthly subscriptions.
MoviePass called the move to CNET an "option" for his "loyal annual subscribers," although the only other option is to cancel.
The company also made the following statement:
This new offer is part of the transition to our new subscription model. We're pleased to offer Subscribers the ability to buy three movies per month for $ 9.95 and get up to $ 5.00 off additional movie tickets. We're grateful to our MoviePass community for offering a reimbursement option to a number of our annual subscribers if the new plan does not match their ad preferences. With this transition, we want to offer more movie options so that subscribers can explore a variety of films further. We believe that our new plan is a positive change in the right direction and that it captures the needs and desires of most of our MoviePass community on our journey to an accessible and high quality movie experience.
