DC Entertainment opens sign ups for its streaming and digital comics service Anthony Ha @ 7 hours

DC Entertainment has unveiled the first details on the upcoming DC Universe streaming service.

You can check them out below.

Television, Swamp Thing and Doom Patrol are slated for a 2019 release while the dramatic, live action adventure series Titans will premieres later this year. DC Universe will be the first-its-kind, one-stop-shop digital service that will feature stream original live action and animated series. "It's a welcoming place for everyone to immerse themselves in their own level of DC fandom, with the epic characters, stories and experiences they have come to expect from DC", Jim Lee, chief creative officer of DC Entertainment, said in a statement. The comic book company - home of Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, etc. - is hoping to take a bite out of the lucrative streaming market, offering fans original content along with a substantial catalog of older movies and TV series, plus digital comic books. This gritty take on the classic Titans franchise finds Dick Grayson and a special young girl possessed by a unusual darkness named Rachel Roth as they get embroiled in a conspiracy. The first will be the live-action "Titans" series, featuring the likes of Robin, Starfire, and Beast Boy. Together they become a surrogate family and team of heroes. That's just an - dare we say it? - incredible coincidence.

Fans will also be able to connect with others in the DC community, earn premium rewards, and participate in sweepstakes and contests.

Swamp Thing follows Abby Arcane as she investigates what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana but soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets. Titans, which centers around Robin and a cast of young superheroes, is the only original arriving in 2018. The titles will be accessible on multiple platforms, although the selection of available comics will change from time to time. It will also features programs long-missing from streaming services like the 1950s Adventures of Superman and Superfriends.

DC isn't announcing pricing yet, but the plan is to launch DC Universe on iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV and the web in the fall, with beta access starting in August.
