MoviePass as we know it might not be around much longer. Truth be told, the writing has been on the wall for a while, but things came to a head this past weekend after the service prevented users from seeing Mission: Impossible—Fallout. Now, even more trouble is on the way.
Apparently, MoviePass CEO Mitch Lowe held an all-hands meeting on Monday to tell employees the service will no longer allow subscribers to see blockbuster releases. If true, it would seriously neuter the service and further put its future in doubt.
Lowe’s decision to limit which movies users can see is meant to keep the company from hemorrhaging money. But the company might be at the point of no return and, as of this writing, many users are reporting the service is down again following an outage last week.
Since MoviePass hasn’t officially announced any changes, it’s unclear how the service’s new policies will work. But whatever new restrictions are implemented, it’s unlikely subscribers will abide.
It might finally be time to cancel your subscription, because it sounds like what you’ll be paying for won’t be what you initially signed up for.
