The platform is launching on the web, iOS, Android, Apple TV, Android TV and Roku. Anyone that signed up early will have access starting today, allowing them to celebrate with a wide-array of Batman-themed content. In celebration of the official launch on “Batman Day” tomorrow, the service will enable fans to access and interact with a wide variety of unique Batman movies, animated series, comics and giveaways throughout the month of September.
The first exclusive original series to premiere on DC Universe will be “Titans,” which is set to debut on October 12, 2018. That series will be followed up with other exclusive series like “Young Justice: Outsiders,” “Doom Patrol,” “Swamp Thing,” and “Harley Quinn,” and “Stargirl”. Starting on Batman Day and running through the month of September, fans will be able to access a variety of content ranging from more than 400 issues of Batman comics to acclaimed films like The Dark Knight. DC Universe will kick off 30 days of giveaways for members starting with the DC Gallery: The Joker 1:1 Bust by Rick Baker, #1 of the limited series.
