There are a lot of streaming options out there, some of which offer the same content as others. But the newest effort from Warner Bros. and DC may actually be spicing things up a bit.
As long as you like content from DC, whether it be comics, television shows, or movies. WB/DC officially announced their upcoming streaming service called “DC Universe”. With it, the companies plan on offering a variety of content, even spanning different mediums, all in an effort to pony up the best possible content for an unknown amount of money for future subscribers.
WB/DC has been announcing new shows and properties for its streaming service for quite some time now, including the upcoming live action Titans and Doom Patrol, or the animated series Young Justice: Outsiders and Harley Quinn. All of these, plus older series including Batman: The Animated Series, Teen Titans, and others, will be on offer within the subscription service’s library.
On top of that, there will be plenty of DC movies to enjoy. That includes The Dark Knight, Superman and its sequels, and other live action TV shows, including the 1977 series Wonder Woman — which will be remastered in HD for the first time just for the streaming platform.
DC Universe is also going to offer access to comics, which is the first time that WB/DC has jumped on the subscription model for its titles. They will include a “rotating, curated selection” of “thousands of DC comics”. WB/DC says the titles will be perfect for the new fans, as well as diehard fans that are looking for hard-to-find titles to catch up on. DC Universe will allow subscribers to download comics for offline reading, too.
DC Universe is going to be available on a plethora of devices and platforms, including iOS and Apple TV, as well as Android, Roku, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, and the web. It will be launching some time this fall. WB/DC is running a limited beta, though, which will launch this August. If you want to sign up for that, head through the source link below.
There is no word on how much the subscription service will cost.
There is a lot to like with this subscription service, especially with the upcoming live action shows and the back catalog. But the inclusion of digital comics, even if it is a rotating library, is a huge bonus as well. It’s all going to come down to just how much it costs.
