With San Diego Comic-Con now upon us, DC Entertainment has officially revealed the subscription price for its highly-anticipated streaming service.
DC fans based in the United States can now pre-order the streaming service for the yearly membership fee of $74.99, with the monthly subscription coming in at $7.99. Those who pre-order between July 19 (9:30 a.m. PT) to July 22 (5 p.m. PT) will have the chance to win two tickets to the U.S. premiere of Warner Bros. and DC’s Aquaman movie, which opens this December.
If that’s not enough, DC is also offering three months of the streaming service for free for those who sign up for a yearly membership before its launch this fall. The company has yet to announce the streaming service’s launch date.
In addition to the original content available exclusively on DC Universe, the service will also provide classic DC shows and films including Batman Begins, the Christopher Reeve Superman films, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Batman: The Animated Series, Super Friends, and the recently released animated films.
The service will also provide “a curated selection of thousands of DC comics,” including 938’s Action Comics No. 1 – in which Superman made his debut – through the recent relaunches of Justice League, Swamp Things and Harley Quinn. The titles will be accessible on multiple platforms, although the selection of available comics will change from time to time.
DC Universe is scheduled to launch in beta mode in August, with a full rollout set for later this year. Fans can register for beta access here.
