DC Universe finally has a release date: September 15. The streaming service, which gives you original programming and curated comics, will cost $7.99 a month or $74.99 annually. The annual membership also includes "Premium annual member benefits and rewards" in addition to saving 20%. As an extra incentive, DC is offering 3 months free if you pre-order now, because there's nothing DC loves more than pre-orders.
DC has announced five TV shows that the service will eventually have: Titans, Doom Patrol, Swamp Thing, Young Justice: Outsiders, and Harley Quinn. Only one of these original programs is going to be available at the launch and that's Titans.
DC Universe will have a library of movies including 1990's The Flash, Christopher Reeves' Superman films, and Constantine. Notably absent are the inclusion of the DCEU films, including Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman, Wonder Woman, Suicide Squad, and Justice League. Bolstering the library will be DC's deep catalog of TV series including Teen Titans, Batman: The Animated Series, and Static Shock.
DC Universe will have a curated "digital longbox" of comics selected by DC. The curated comics will also rotate based on relation to the TV shows on the service.
Is it worth the $8 a month?
