DC Universe, the DC Comics streaming service that was unveiled last month, has revealed details of its subscription price.
During a presentation at San Diego Comic Con, DC announced that the price of the service – which will initially rollout in the US this autumn – will be $7.99 a month, or a full year subscription will cost $74.99. Users who pre-order a yearly membership before the service’s launch in fall 2018 will get an additional three months of DC Universe for free.
Fans attending Comic Con were able to get their hand on a beta version of the service, allowing them to explore a curated library of movies, TV shows and comics.
In a statement, DC Studios said: “Compatible with Apple and Android devices, Roku, and Amazon Fire, DC Universe slots in alongside Netflix, Hulu, or any other digital steaming app. And with the selection of DC movies and TV shows on DC Universe, functions in largely the same way (users of Netflix will feel right at home navigating DC’s top level). But scattered among the video content are comic books, carefully and intentionally selected. Whether they’re acclaimed favorites like Scott Snyder’s Batman or comics tied in to coming DC releases like Geoff Johns’ Aquaman, the goal is disintegrating the barriers between one superhero medium and the next.”
