DC Universe has unveiled a slate of new features and programming updates for its digital subscription service.
At the WonderCon event in California, the service revealed that its members will now have access to DC’s vast digital comics library that encompasses many thousand single issue comics published over 80 years. Members can read, view on a big screen and enjoy all the comics in “vivid detail”. Individual issues published 12 months prior to any given date will be available on DC Universe starting this April (exact date TBA).
“From the time DC Universe launched last year, our fans have loved the comic experience and have asked us for just one thing – more. The expansion to thousands of titles in January 2019 was a first step in our goal to deliver on that request, to provide DC Universe members full access to the pantheon of DC’s epic Super Hero stories,” said DC Universe Senior Vice President and General Manager, Sam Ades. “We’re thrilled to respond to our fans yet again with the incredible value of the ultimate DC digital comics library.”
DC Universe also revealed the May 31st premiere date of upcoming original live-action series based on cult DC favourite Swamp Thing. Another notable addition the service’s line-up is an original animated-series based around Harley Quinn which will debut in the autumn.
DC Universe launched in September of last year and is available for $7.99 per month (or $74.99 annually) in the US on iOS, Amazon Fire TV, Android, Apple TV, Android TV and Roku. There are currently no plans to launch the service in the UK.
