The monthly subscription service MoviePass is once again making news, by throwing in access to the streaming service Fandor. This latest deal is for customers of the buy-in-bulk giant, Costco. MoviePass has already made a couple of price drops this year, the first one being a huge reduction from $30 per month, to just $9.95.
More recently the company did one better, offering an annual pass for $89.99 that comes out to around $7.50 per month. The offer for Costco customers that begins today and lasts through December 18, is more or less the same deal, with the bonus of the Fandor subscription.
Fandor is a paid subscription service, with a focus on smaller and independent films. The MoviePass deal seems almost too good to be true, I don’t really see how it’s profitable, but I guess that is why I write articles and don’t crunch numbers.
I am yet to get a pass of my own but I know a couple people that do have it and they really enjoy the benefits. While I love film in general, I usually save theater trips for Star Wars, Marvel, and yes DC, with a few exceptions, but if the deal is right, it’s right.
In an effort to combat MoviePass, Cinemark Theaters has developed their own monthly subscription service and you can read about that here.
