MoviePass has dropped from over 3 million subscribers to around 225,000, according to internal data obtained by Business Insider.
After months of changing its features and price point to remain in business - and seeing its parent company, Helios and Matheson Analytics, delisted from the Nasdaq in February - one month ago MoviePass announced an "Uncapped" plan in which there would be no restrictions on the number of 2D movies subscribers could see. There was a catch, however: MoviePass could throttle a subscriber's access at its discretion.Read more: Ousted MoviePass cofounder Stacy Spikes breaks his silence on the startup's whirlwind rise and crash to financial reality
That new plan has failed to revive MoviePass' growth, according to the internal data. MoviePass has only signed up around 13,000 new subscribers since "Uncapped" launched. For comparison, when MoviePass launched its $10-a-month plan in 2017, the service hit 100,000 subscribers in the first 48 hours, MoviePass cofounder Stacy Spikes recently told Business Insider.Despite MoviePass' decline, the movie-ticket subscription model is thriving with AMC Theatres and Cinemark having success with their own plans, and Sinemia offering its tech to get chains like Studio Movie Grill and National Amusements to launch their own services. Alamo Drafthouse will also be offering its own subscription service by the end of the year, CEO Tim League told Business Insider.MoviePass did not respond to a request for comment.
