DC Universe is expanding its brand to include a new streaming service and we couldn’t be more thrilled to see what the future holds.

It was previously known that DC planned on creating their own streaming service, crafting series like the upcoming live-action Titans series or the return of the popular Young Justice for its third season. Now, months since the initial discussion, DC has informed us that it’s officially coming later this year with plenty of exciting new perks to get excited about.

The new DC service will include the debut of the highly anticipated Titans series with most of the beloved core characters from the comics and animated series – but will also see the development of interwoven spin-offs. A later episode of Titans is currently labeled as “Doom Patrol” and DC has already confirmed that the popular group will additionally receive a series of their own for the DC platform.

Other inclusions will feature the live-action Swamp Thing, Young Justice: Outsiders and the debut of a new animated series featuring Harley Quinn. With a solid group of original programming already teasing a major change for the DC universe, it’s enough to sign up for all of the comic book based goodness – but it also includes extra attributes to take advantage of. Whether you hope to watch, read, or even find new ways to interact, there is something to satisfy every hardcore DC fan and those hoping to dive into the expansive universe as well.

With your subscription, DC will contain several thousand comics available at no additional cost, exclusive merchandise you can purchase, an option to connect with other die-hard DC fans, and even take a stroll down memory lane with older DC films or shows like Batman: The Animated Series. This sets DC apart from other services we have seen so far, taking in several different mediums to make it a completely immersive experience for subscribers.

The DC service will officially roll out in late 2018, but fans will have the option to sign up for beta access here which will begin in August to test out the platform. With DC making major strides as a major multimedia force, this will be a unique way to entertain the masses and could potentially spark a shift in the future of streaming platforms.
