DC Universe sets pricing plan for digital subscription

While the MCU might be dominating the theaters right now, a new subscription service called "DC Universe" is launching later this year with all of the superhero content you could ask for.

An annual subscription to the service will cost you US$74.99, or you can choose to pay a monthly fee of US$7.99. Television released a first-look at the upcoming exclusive original series Titans with the trailer premiere. TITANS is a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever. It's unclear how long titles will stick around for and how often new ones will be added, but we do know that subscribers will have access to 2,000 - 3,000 at any given time.

What a large part of DC fans have been waiting to hear about is certainly the process of their original programming and where we can expect it to take off next.

So what will be available right at launch to watch? Exclusive animated series like the animated Harley Quinn and Young Justice: Outsiders series. No exact date of release has been announced, the service is aiming for a fall launch. If you pre-order it you will get three months free. It will also have past titles like The Adventures of Superman, Batman: The Animated Series, Constantine, The Flash (1990), Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and Wonder Woman. Yet somehow, it works and is an interesting change for the character. Whether that works in practice remains to be seen, but if DC follows through on its promises to create a home for comic book fans to enjoy all of their favorite properties in one convenient place, DC Universe could easily become the standard-bearer for a new type of entertainment provider. WBDN also produces and distributes premium digital series through Stage 13 and Machinima and in partnership with LeBron James' Uninterrupted and Ellen DeGeneres' Ellen Digital Ventures.
