DC Universe Streaming Service Gets a September Launch Date
This fall, DC Comics is upping its game with the new DC Universe streaming service. However, Comic-Con came and went without a launch date announcement. That changed today, during the first episode of DC Daily, the new series set to replace DC All Access. Host Kevin Smith kicked off the live stream by revealing that DC Universe is officially launching on Saturday, September 15. That also happens to be Batman Day, which marks the annual celebration of Gotham City’s Dark Knight.
DC Universe will be available for $7.99 a month or $74.99 for the yearly subscription. In addition to five episodes of DC Daily a week, original series like Titans will run on Fridays. Future original shows coming to DC Universe include Swamp Thing, Young Justice: Outsiders, Harley Quinn, and Doom Patrol. Classic shows available at launch will include Batman: The Animated Series, Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, and Batman: The Brave and the Bold.
There will also be a selection of DC comic books available on DC Universe, which will allow new and lapsed fans to jump into the medium that inspired the series.
