Details Finally Emerge Regarding DC’s Streaming Service | TV News
Disney aren’t the only major brand with a streaming service on the horizon. DC Entertainment have been crafting their own on-demand service that they hope will compete with giants like Netflix and Amazon. Today, we’ve finally got some details regarding it, including the fact that it will be open to beta access in August, before a full launch happens in the autumn.
We already know that the service will contain new live-action original series like Titans, which features a young Robin and many other superheroes, as well as Doom Patrol and Swamp Thing. On the animated side of things, Harley Quinn and Young Justice are also set to be a part of the DC Universe service.
However, today DC announced that it will also play host to plenty of older titles from their library, including all four original Superman movies, the original Wonder Woman series, and perhaps most excitingly: the iconic, critically acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series.
The service will also reportedly host many animated feature films, with subscribers also available to view a rotating library of comics via the DC Universe app. More details will surely arrive soon, and it will be interesting to see what other DC original series make it to the streaming service, as opposed to American network The CW, where its most popular shows now reside.
With streaming becoming of such major importance, we could see that DC deal with The CW become an issue as the DC Universe will likely need all the content it can get to make a profit and catch up with the other streaming giants.
You can sign up for beta access on the official website. No pricing has yet been revealed for the full release.
