MoviePass and Fandor partner with Costco on package deal
MoviePass, the movie-theatre subscription service, and Fandor, the streaming service offering a wide range of independent films, documentaries, international features and shorts, announced that both companies are partnering with Costco to offer a one-year subscription plan for a flat fee of $89.99.
The package deal for both services is available exclusively to Costco members and covers a year of membership for both MoviePass and Fandor. The offer will only be available online at Costco.com for one week, from Dec. 12 to Dec. 18, 2017.
Those who sign up for the one-year subscriptions will receive digital codes providing instant access to Fandor’s library of over 5,000 films, as well as a year’s worth of theatre experiences through MoviePass.
MoviePass introduced its $9.95 per month subscription plan in August 2017, as part of a majority acquisition of the company by Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. Since that roll-out, MoviePass’ subscriber base has grown to over 600,0000.
“We’ve long been fans of Fandor’s library of movies and we’re excited to partner with them and Costco to bring new members this incredible limited-time offer,” said Mitch Lowe, CEO of MoviePass. “MoviePass is ultimately about celebrating our love of movies, whether you stream them at home or experience them on the big screen. We feel strongly that our subscription model is a major step forward for the industry, and the increased attendance that we’ve seen as a result of the MoviePass service is an encouraging sign not only for theatres, but for the studios and distributors as well.”
Larry Aidem, president and CEO of Fandor, commented, “Fandor is excited about its continuing successful partnership with MoviePass and the resulting benefit to movie lovers. Working with our friends at Costco, Fandor and MoviePass together are offering Costco customers access to over 5,000 movies available to stream at home plus access to unlimited movies in theatres 365 days a year.”
