Away from video content the service will also offer a curated selection of digital comic books, breaking news, an expansive DC-centric encyclopedia, and access to exclusive merchandise. Additional fan features include opportunities to connect with others in the DC community, earn premium rewards and participate in sweepstakes and contests.
At launch, the service costs $7.99 (€6.85) per month or $74.99 annually. Plans to expand the service into further markets have yet to be revealed.
