No one-time payment now? Only subscriptions?

Hi.
I have been using Infuse Pro (6) on my Apple TV for some years now.
I would like to upgrade to the new version, but will definitely not enter into a subscription-based tier!
Why? I can understand Netflix, HBO, and other services function on a subscription-based model, as they’re constantly producing new stuff.
But… why would I pay a subscription for a simple video player?
Is there any way of making a one-time payment for the latest Infuse Pro? Am I forced into one of those subscriptions? Or do I have to look into VLC or somewhere else?
Thanks.
