DC Universe, DC’s own streaming service that includes many of their popular properties such as Batman Begins and Batman: The Animated Series, made its official launch today.
Coincidentally (sarcasm), the launch of this new streaming service coincides with DC’s annual Batman Day event.
Warner Bros. Digital Networks President Craig Hunegs sent out a press release today on the launch, saying:
“This weekend, as we celebrate one of our most iconic heroes, we launch a digital service that unites Super Heroes from every corner of the DC universe, from our most treasured films and comics to exclusive originals all-in-one place,”
“DC Universe stands out as a fan-first service in what is quickly becoming a crowded marketplace of consumer choices. The fan response has exceeded our wildest expectations and we’re excited to share this truly unique experience with everyone.”
The streaming service is featuring more than 400 Batman-themed comics, movies, and TV shows. Not only that but DC Universe is also giving away exclusive prizes over the next 30 days.
Titans will be the first live-action series for the DC Universe. Premiering October 12th, Titans will mainly center around Dick Grayson as he attempts to get out from Batman’s shadow. Its first trailer, which debuted at SDCC 2018, wasn’t very well received. This was due to many reasons varying from its overly dark tone to Robin’s new “kill” policy.
DC Universe is $7.99 a month ($74.99 annually) and is available right now through Apple TV, Android TV, Roku, Android, Apple, and Google Chromecast. It is expected to be available for Amazon Fire TV users shortly.
