Here’s how you can watch all of the movies you want for $10 per month
Mitch Lowe, a Netflix co-founder who now runs a startup called MoviePass, said he is dropping the company’s movie ticket subscription on Tuesday to $9.95.
This means subscribers will be able to pay about $10 per month to MoviePass and be able to attend one showing per day at any U.S. theater that accepts debit cards, reports Bloomberg.
Since MoviePass is subsidizing theaters the full price of each ticket used by its customers, its possible the company could lose a lot of money. But MoviePass has raised some cash by selling a large stake to Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc., a data business in New York.
The fallout from the Charlottesville violence continues in the tech world
On Monday, Google canceled the domain registration for neo-Nazi site The Daily Stormer just hours after GoDaddy did the same, according to The Washington Post.
Both came in the wake of a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. this past weekend, where a white supremacist drove a car into a group of counter-protesters, killing one person.
After President Donald Trump did not call out white supremacists in his initial response to the violence in Charlottesville, three CEO’s quit the president’s American manufacturing council on Monday in a show of rebuke, including Brian Krzanich, the CEO of Intel.
Snapchat tested new AI that could transform the viewing of live events
Snap, the parent company of Snapchat, has built a tool named Crowd Surf that links Snaps submitted by different people to Our Story and uses geolocation and timestamps to create one video that viewers can watch by pressing a button at the bottom of their screen.
The feature was tested during a Lorde concert in San Fransisco this past weekend, says Business Insider.
While the technology still has some kinks to be worked out and requires a large amount of people to be using Snapchat at the same location, it could become a popular tool for viewing live events.
