Warner Bros’ long-in-the-works DC Universe streaming service is finally in the homestretch with an official pricing plan in place.
The new subscription service—which combines new original live-action and animated series, classic TV series and films, a curated selection of comic books, breaking news, an encyclopedia and access to exclusive merchandise—will cost $7.99 per month or $74.99 per year.
The service is available for preorder right now and users who preorder a yearly membership before the service’s launch in fall 2018 will get an additional three months of DC UNIVERSE for free. Preorders also come with automatic entry into a contest to win tickets to the December 2018 premiere of “Aquaman.”
The announcement regarding pricing is timed with the start of Comic-Con in San Diego where DC will have a booth and an immersive DC Universe experience.
The big rollout for DC Universe is finally arriving more than a year after Warner Bros. first announced its plans for the streaming service.
“Developing new ways for consumers to access some of our most popular and iconic brands and franchises as well as exclusive new content whenever they want, on the devices they choose, is one of our studio's top priorities,” said Craig Hunegs, president of Warner Bros. Digital Networks, in a statement. “The DC Universe platform gives fans a place to tailor their experience and build a direct relationship with DC in a way they never could before.”
DC Universe will work on desktop and all iOS and Android devices. It’s also compatible with Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV and Google Chromecast.
