The DC Universe online service has seen a lot of changes in the last two months. First, the app made its way to the Xbox One game console, giving subscribers another option to watch the programming on a big screen TV. Then DC Universe added over 21,000 comic books to the library, making this the largest collection of DC Comics on the internet. Today, DC Universe announced that it has made its original programming available in glorious 4K.
The shows available in 4K right now include Titans, Doom Patrol, Young Justice: Outsiders, and the upcoming Swamp Thing, which is set to premiere on May 31st. In addition to the original DC Universe programming, various animated films in the online service’s library are also available in 4K. These include the following.
The DC Universe app is the go-to place for fans of all things DC — and comic book fans in general. The service constantly adds new programming, including feature films like Tim Burton’s Batman, Richard Donner’s Superman, and entire seasons of animated shows like Justice League Unlimited, Batman: The Animated Series, and even classic TV shows like Shazam and the Adventures of Superman, starring George Reeves as Superman/Clark Kent, and new shows, like Syfy’s amazing Krypton, which is the story of Superman’s grandfather as he battles Brainiac!
The amount of comic books in the library is staggering, with new books added each month, as all current DC Comics titles are added after 12 months of release. We love the DC Universe service and the fact that original programming is now streamed in 4K is yet another reason to subscribe.
DC Universe is $7.99 a month, or $74.99 a year, and is well worth the price. Check back with us as we continue our coverage of the DC Universe app and review and recap its original programming.
