MoviePass To Go “Dark” (Unusable) For Weeks To Update App
Since Thursday movie subscription service MoviePass has been unusable, MoviePass is saying that this is because they need to update the app. CEO Mitch Lowe said:
“There’s never a good time to have to do this…” “But to complete the improved version of our app, one that we believe will provide a much better experience for our subscribers, it has to be done.”
MoviePass did say that existing members will be credited for the downtime and MoviePass is also not allowing new users to sign up for the service during this period. It does seem odd that updates to the app can’t be made while the service is still usable, so I wonder if there is more at play here than what MoviePass is saying officially. MoviePass has constantly struggled with these types of issues.
