MoviePass releases Android version of app to support subscription movie service


We are all familiar with the many services that are available for streaming, downloading, and viewing movies on your TV or other device. Using a subscription model, MoviePass is trying to bring a similar concept to the viewing of movies while they are still in theaters. MoviePass promises members the opportunity to view all movies in participating theaters with no blackout dates. To support the service, they have released their MoviePass app to the Google Play Store.

MoviePass members pay a monthly fee for unlimited access to movies in local theaters. The app that goes with the service will help members find participating movie theaters, find out what is playing and show times. Members of MoviePass will be able to earn rewards that can be used for different discounts and the ability to order other items like soundtracks. Members will get access to invite only events, premieres and screenings to go along with social media features like invites for friends or ranking and reviewing movies.

MoviePass is currently in the process of conducting a private beta and they only way to get in on that is to get an invite. You can request one at their website, Pricing is projected to be between $25 and $40 per month depending on location.

    Incompatible with my GoogleTV devices? What’s the point? Why would I pay to watch a movie on a tablet or phone when I have a $10K home theater?
