Night Flight 2.0 – A Letter From Night Flight CEO Stuart Shapiro

By on September 5, 2017


Dear Night Flight Plus Founders,

I wanted to send off an update on what is happening at Night Flight and thought you all would like to hear from me personally. First, I want to thank all of you for helping to make Night Flight a reality again. You are the reason Night Flight is broadcasting again.

Night Flight Plus now has over 120 exclusive Night Flight Episodes (including the beloved ‘As Aired’ episodes) and 500 specially curated films and shows including collections and series from Dr. Ruth, Something Weird, Wu Tang Collection, and the recently added Scott and Gary show!

The continued support from our Night Flight Plus members has allowed us to make progress on the digital restoration of over 7000 hours of exclusive Night Flight content. Thanks to you, we’re not stopping anytime soon.

Here are some important improvements coming to the Night Flight platform:

  • In early September, both our Roku and Apple TV users will be greeted with a new Night Flight Plus app.

  • You’ll find a new category and organization system to make finding episodes, films and series easier.

  • We’re adding 60 new music titles before the end of the year covering AC/DC, Depeche Mode, KISS, Psychic TV, Lydia Lunch, and more! With 20 of those titles available at once.

  • And of course, these updates come with the continued promise to adding freshly restored original episodes of Night Flight from the vault every weekend!

When we launched Night Flight Plus last year, we settled on the “80s price tag” of $2.99 because we wanted our customers to have an incredible value while we took the time to refine and perfect our channel and business. Over that time, you’ve given us insight in what you want to watch (and what you don’t) and how you want to watch it.

So here’s the big story: we have raised our monthly subscription rates from $2.99 to $4.99 with an annual rate increase from $29.99 to $39.99. An annual subscription is still one of the absolute best deals around, coming out to just $3.33/month. (The way we like to describe this increase is that it’s your monthly streaming cup of coffee becoming a latte.)

This price increase will give us the flexibility we need to start achieving our next set of goals, which include: producing new episodes, acquiring more excellent titles that fit our unique DNA and expanding onto the devices and gaming systems you have been asking for!

Hope you all enjoy Night Flight for years to come. We have just begun to blossom…so much more to come both old and new.
