MoviePass suspends services due to technical issues, possibly for several weeks

Recommended Posts

"There’s never a good time to have to do this," stated CEO Mitch Lowe.



MoviePass said its service was halted at 5 a.m. ET on Thursday and may take "several weeks" for it to resume service while it undergoes unspecified "improvements" to its mobile app. 


In March, the company had brought back its $9.95 a month plan as a promotional offering, but with many restrictions.


In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission that same month, the company noted an "overstatement of subscription revenue" in the third quarter of 2018. It did not disclose the number of subscribers it had.


The company stated that the halting of its service was temporary, but moviegoers won't be able to subscribe during the platform's time on hiatus.

Per Lowe's orders, MoviePass began limiting subscriber access ahead of the April release of the highly anticipated "Avengers: Infinity War," according to multiple former employees. They said Lowe ordered that the passwords of a small percentage of power users be changed, preventing them from logging onto the app and ordering tickets.




I'm sure it's a coincidence they shut down the service during summer blockbuster season
