The DC Universe Streaming Service May Launch In August


Admittedly, I’ve never seen reason to subscribe to any sort of streaming service, but the upcoming DC Universe initiative may change that. Boasting animated series such as Young Justice: Outsiders and Harley Quinn, while not ignoring the live action side of things by bringing Titans and Swamp Thing along for the ride, Doom Patrol can now also count itself among the latter art form. Needless to say, that’s a whole lot of incentive to sign up.

So, if you’re in agreement with me – or already subscribe to the likes of Netflix and Hulu, and have a desire to add this bad boy to the bunch – you’ve probably been wondering when showtime will be.

Previously, word had been that DC Universe was set to launch sometime in late 2018, most likely in one of the autumn months. But according to a recent off-the-cuff remark made by somebody in the know, we may be able to get in on the action much sooner than anticipated.

While appearing on the James Bonding podcast, DC Entertainment community manager Dani Snow had this to offer:

“We are about to launch – I think in late August – our DC digital platform, which will be a hub for all things DC.”

If indeed that’s the timetable they’re on, then we obviously won’t have to wait much longer. In fact, an official announcement could come any day. That said, one would think July’s San Diego Comic-Con would provide the perfect place and time to lay it all out, not to mention debut some trailers.
