4K HDR content now streaming on DC Universe

10 May 2019 | Rasmus Larsen |

DC Universe has added a handful of titles in 4K HDR to its library, including Doom Patrol, Titans, and Assault on Arkham. 4K HDR is supported on Apple TV, Roku, and other devices.

DC Universe launches 4K HDR

Warner Bros launched DC Universe in September 2018 as "a digital service that unites Super Heroes from every corner of the DC universe".

DC Universe has now added support for 4K HDR streaming. The first titles are YJO Season 3, Doom Patrol, Titans, Animated Movies, Gotham by Gaslight, Batman Ninja, Death of Superman, Reign of the Supermen, Fatal Five, Assault on Arkham, and DC Daily (episodes since 4/29).

4K HDR streaming is supported on Android TV, Apple TV 4K, Chromecast Ultra, FireTV, and Roku. Last month, DC Universe launched an app for Xbox One but it appears that this app is still limited to 1080p. In addition, all of these devices support 5.1 Dolby surround. A support page can be found here.

- "4K is not available on the web, Android or iOS mobile devices," DC Universe said. "Gen 1 FireTV & FireTV Stick Devices connected to a 4K screen will need to disable dolby digital 5.1 in the fire TV settings."

80 years of comics

Besides 4K HDR content, the service recently announced "full availability of the ultimate DC digital comics library." The library encompasses more than 21,000 single issue comics published over 80 years.

- "We are always looking for new ways to deliver our comics and reach the widest possible audience," sad Jim Lee, DC Chief Creative Officer. "The addition of more than 80 years of iconic Super Hero storytelling to DC Universe creates a seamless experience where fans can jump from their favorite DC show right into the comic it’s based on. Our goal was to create the ultimate digital comics library and we’ve done that with this DC Universe expansion."

DC Universe is a subscription service that costs $7.99 per month or $74.99 annually. It is currently available in the US only. Later this year, WarnerMedia will launch a streaming service with content from HBO, Turner, and Warner Bros that will compete with Hulu, Netflix, and other standalone streaming services.
