DC Universe “goes beyond streaming” to offer members access to digital comic books, a DC encyclopedia, a community, and more, the company said. It will launch this fall on Apple TV, Android TV, Fire TV, Roku, and other devices.
DC Universe goes beyond streaming
First announced earlier this year, DC has now detailed its plans for the upcoming DC Universe streaming service that will include a package of other features.
- ”With membership, fans will enjoy all-new original live-action and animated series, classic TV series and films, a curated selection of digital comic books, breaking news, an expansive DC-centric encyclopedia, and access to exclusive merchandise. Additional fan features include opportunities to connect with others in the DC community, earn premium rewards and participate in sweepstakes and contests,” the company said.
DC Universe will offer movies such as Nolan’s The Dark Knight as well as decade-old catalog content and new exclusive live-action and animated series based on Swamp Thing, Doom Patrol, Titans, and others.
DC Comics section
The comics section will include comic book history such as “the first 1938 Action Comics that introduced Superman to the world as well as Detective Comics #27 which first introduced Batman in 1939” as well as more recent comics.
- “DC Universe is so much more than a streaming service. It’s a welcoming place for everyone to immerse themselves in their own level of DC fandom, with the epic characters, stories, and experiences they have come to expect from DC,” said Jim Lee, chief creative officer, DC Entertainment. “We are investing in and creating original, high-quality shows including the new Titans series, and curating the most beloved nostalgic content, while at the same time elevating the comic reading experience to new heights. Nothing this robust has ever been offered to fans before.”
At launch, the streaming service will be accessible on Apple TV, Android TV, Fire TV, Roku, Android, iOS, and web browsers on PC/Mac.
DC Universe will launch “this fall 2018” in the US with announcements for other regions coming later. Fans can sign up for an opportunity to get beta access in August 2018 on dcuniverse.com.
