DC Universe

At long last, after all the reports and rumors over the last year or so the Warner Bros. DC Comics focused DC Universe streaming platform is almost ready for viewers. Through Twitter, the official account for the platform revealed that the streaming service will officially launch on September 15 which also happens to be the date for the company’s annual Batman Day.

Fans of DC content can sign up ahead of time, and by pre-ordering they’ll gain three months of free service. Because it comes with a rotating library of content (movies, TV shows, comics and more) the platform comes in at a price cheaper than Netflix with a $7.99 a month price point or a $74.99 annual choice.

Titansthe first of around six original series that will debut on the platform, won’t be available from the start of the platform. In another tweet, it was revealed that the series, a somewhat grittier take on the youthful DC heroes, will launch almost a month later on October 12. Whether it will be Netflix style of all episodes at once or follow Hulu and CBS All Access with weekly episodes of the program is unclear.

Alongside classic films and shows (including the fan-favorite Batman: The Animated Seriesthe platform will also allow access to a curated amount of DC Comics and communities where fans can interact and a new daily news show called DC Daily.
