As MoviePass collapses, Sinemia expands $30 unlimited movie subscription plan to more places

The $10 unlimited movie subscription from app-based MoviePass seemed too good to be true when it launched a few years back, and indeed it was. MoviePass is in the process of imploding, but one of its European rivals has taken this opportunity to expand into the US, Canada, Australia, and the UK. Sinemia says its approach is sustainable, but it's also more expensive. You'll pay $30 per month for unlimited movies.

MoviePass attempts to put out dumpster fire by shooting self in foot

The situation at MoviePass is bad. Very bad. With the value of the company having plummeted tremendously after a disastrous reverse stock split last week, MoviePass's owners are doing anything they can to stem the bleeding at the popular all-you-can-eat theater subscription service, and it looks like "anything" means making the service much, much worse.

I won't leave you waiting on the big changes: monthly pricing is going up 50% (to $14.95) and you won't be able to see most movies (anything opening on over 1000 screens) until they've been out for two weeks.

Google Play Movies & TV's Roku channel is getting a face lift. The new channel looks a little like YouTube's TV web wrapper, with content filling most of the screen and navigation on the left.

MoviePass competitor Sinemia now starts at $4.99 per month, but with caveats

By giving more than 2 million customers a way to see multiple movies in theaters each month at a discounted price, MoviePass is disrupting the cinema industry in a big way. While not nearly as much of a household name, Sinemia is vying to do the same. With new subscription plans starting at lower prices and boasting features that its rival doesn't offer, Sinemia may seem like an appealing alternative — and it may be for some types of moviegoers. But as is typically the case, the devil is in the details.

Google commemorates May the 4th by integrating Fandango into Assistant

Google's no stranger to Star Wars-themed May the 4th promotions. Last year Android Pay offered dancing bugdroids with your purchase, and this year it's pushing discounted content on Google Play. But that's not all Google has planned for the date, the Assistant is also getting some Star Wars day love. Google's using Disney's corporate holiday as an opportunity to remind you that its Assistant can display showtimes when asked, now with Fandango-integrated checkout and seat selection.

Google Play Movies v4.3 prepares configuration options for streaming services [APK Teardown]

Google recently launched a new feature that suggests various streaming services when you're looking at TV shows and movies to watch. The latest update doesn't appear to do any more than ensure that feature is available, assuming it hadn't already rolled out to you. However, it looks like there's still a little more to come. It looks like we'll also get the option to configure those streaming services and cable subscriptions to get better suggestions.
