DC Entertainment has released the first details about its long in the works DC Universe streaming service which sounds like it’ll offer a larger scope of product than first thought.
The plan for this ‘first-of-its-kind digital subscription service’ is to be a one-stop shop for the audience’s DC needs in terms of comics, movies or television. That will include a library of shows and movies spanning decades along with a curated selection of thousands of DC comics, a storefront for exclusive merchandise, and an all-new DC-centric encyclopedia.
DC CCO Jim Lee says in a statement: “DC Universe is so much more than a streaming service, It’s a welcoming place for everyone to immerse themselves in their own level of DC fandom, with the epic characters, stories, and experiences they have come to expect from DC. We are investing in and creating original, high-quality shows including the new Titans series, and curating the most beloved nostalgic content, while at the same time elevating the comic reading experience to new heights. Nothing this robust has ever been offered to fans before.”
DC Universe will also include a community space and an online store offering exclusive merchandise from DC Collectibles. The new service will launch with a beta this August ahead of a full launch this Fall across iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Android TV, in addition to offering online and mobile access.
