I believe often that is the point of the sign up fee.
It's a way of reducing costs for consistent members, while still properly charging 1 month "download it all then take off for awhile" members.
If you could get all of their videos for a one time payment of X, and regular members also had to pay X, then they would lack the incentive to resubscribe constantly once there is a large video library.
So say a site has 500 videos. They are only going to release up to say 30 videos in the next month. Assuming their quality is consistently good, you could get 500 videos in one month for that X price, so why would you consider paying X again for another 30 next month? You'd probably wait at least a month or two to resubscribe.
There are other ways to look at it too and other factors at play, but the sign up fees or increased costs for month 1 (or decreased for multiple months) does make sense, particularly for sites with large libraries of videos that are of similar quality.
