Movie subscription service MoviePass has announced that users will only get to choose from a limited number of films on any given day, CNN reports. The restrictions follow the unveiling of a new plan that will limit the number of movies a subscriber can see to three a month. Previously, users could see up to a movie a day. In an email to users, CEO Mitch Lowe said that MoviePass will offer up to six films per day from which users can choose, adding that the offerings will appear on the MoviePass website at least a week in advance. As noted by Vox, MoviePass has had a heck of a week: Shareholders filed a class action lawsuit against the company, and it came to light that MoviePass would be out of cash in about two months based on its current burn rate. The new changes are designed to curb that. (More MoviePass stories.)
