The DC Universe subscription service we detailed earlier this year is now in beta with a planned launch timeframe: this upcoming fall. Anyone interested in accessing the beta can sign up now in hopes of getting an invitation, but everyone will have access starting later this year. DC has provided more details about the service, including all the perks you get for signing up.
DC Universe is more than just a streaming service, though the streaming aspect of it seems to be the biggest part. The service will offer access to exclusive original shows, including Titans, Doom Patrol, Young Justice: Outsiders, Swamp Thing, and Harley Quinn. The streaming video content isn’t limited to just exclusives, though.
DC says users will also have access to the company’s classic television shows and movies, including animated content.
As well, DC Universe will provide users with access to a curated list of both classic and modern DC Comics in digital form. These will be accessible through the company’s own comic reader software. Curated playlists and an interactive encyclopedia will help users explore existing DC storylines and characters, plus there’s direct access to both other fans and content creators via forums.
Finally, the service includes an online shop containing exclusive merchandise, which means only members will be able to buy it. There’s also the chance to win what DC calls “premium rewards,” those apparently includes things like tickets to events exclusive to DC Universe.
Anyone can sign up via the link below in hopes of getting a beta invitation, but it’s not a guarantee. DC plans to launch DC Universe for everyone starting this upcoming fall season. Pricing still hasn’t been revealed.
