DC Universe was announced in May 2018 and it officially launched this past weekend on iOS, Android, Apple TV, Android TV, and Roku, as well as web browsers. The company has also announced plans for Amazon Fire TV but apparently the app is not ready.
- “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,” said Warner Bros. Digital Networks President Craig Hunegs. “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.”
DC Universe will include catalog content (but not all of it) as well as new content. The first original series to premiere will be Titans on October 12, 2018, followed by Young Justice: Outsiders, Doom Patrol, Swamp Thing, Harley Quinn and Stargirl. A subscription also gives access to the DC Daily show, digital comic books, a DC encyclopedia, a community, and more.
- “Strong pre-order sales have shown a desire for the consolidation of high quality back catalog and exclusive original content based on iconic DC characters,” the company said.
At launch, DC Universe is available in the US only for 8 USD per month or 75 USD annually. More information is available on dcuniverse.com.
