Today, DC and Warner Bros. announced that the DC Universe streaming service is finally available on a game console, in this case, the Xbox One. The streaming service had been previously available on set-top devices like Amazon’s Fire TV, Roku, and Apple TV, as well as via various mobile apps for smart phones and tablets. Adding the service to a game console via an app has been requested since day one, and DC Universe has finally taken that next step.
DC Universe features exclusive content, like the Titans series, which Electric Bento has covered in the past, and the currently airing Doom Patrol series. Joining the DC Universe service later this year is Swamp Thing in May and Stargirl later this summer. Titans will return in the fall for Season 2. DC Universe also features hundreds of hours and DC-based content, like classic films, such as Tim Burton’s Batman and Richard Donner’s Superman, animated features, and entire seasons of beloved animated shows. Syfy network’s wonderful series Krypton was just added as well.
The DC Universe service launched last fall as the go-to place for all things DC Comics. In addition to the hours and hours of video content, DCU also offers thousands of comic books and various forums and in-house produced webisodes of content. To put it simply, DC Universe is the place to go for fans of DC Comics and its menagerie of iconic characters like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Green Lantern, and The Flash.
The move to put the service on game consoles will help DC and Warner Bros. increase their digital imprint as the service approaches its second year. Hopefully, fans will see apps on the PS4 and smart TVs sooner, rather than later, to ensure that viewers have plenty of options on how they stream the DC Universe content.
Stay tuned to Electric Bento for more news on the DC Universe service, as well as reviews of the new content when it becomes available.
