MoviePass Continues To Crash And Burn. Is It The Most Worthless Product Ever?
MoviePass may be the most useless product ever invented.
For those of you who don’t know, MoviePass started as a subscription with a flat fee that allowed viewers to see a free movie a day. It’s a genius idea and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Well, since I got the service, it’s only continued to go down in flames.
The Hollywood Reporter recently reported the following:
MoviePass has changed its plan yet again, this time reducing the number of movies a subscriber can see to three movies per month. The embattled company also announced on Monday that it is abandoning a price increase to $14.95, and keeping it’s monthly fee at $9.95.
“Beginning August 15, 2018, MoviePass subscribers will transition to the new plan upon their renewal, which gives subscribers up to three movies a month for $9.95, and up to a $5.00 discount for any additional movie tickets,” Helios and Matheson Analytics, the parent company of the struggling movie subscription and ticketing service, said in a statement on Monday.
Honestly, MoviePass sucks. I can’t put into words how much I’m starting to hate MoviePass. It’s becoming an absolutely atrocious service. Nothing stays concrete. Literally, nothing about this stupid idea is lovable at this point. What is stopping me from just canceling my account right now? Please, somebody, find me one good reason.
As a consumer, I simply expect consistency and to get what I’m paying for. Is that so difficult? Are my expectations over the top? I guess so. See, I was under the impression that this is America, and basic standards of decency apply. (RELATED: WATCH THE NEWEST TRAILER FOR ‘SICARIO 2: DAY OF THE SOLDADO’)
Look, I might not be a millionaire, but I understand a little bit of business. I’m pretty sure you don’t turn a large profit by pissing off your entire customer base. Again, I’m not a millionaire. I’m just some dude with one of the largest audiences in the world. What the hell would I know?
Seriously, I hope MoviePass goes under at this point. It’s what they deserve for all the pain and hassle they’ve put me through.
