DC’s New Digital Service Gets A Name

DC’s new digital service now has a name. The platform, a joint venture of Warner Bros and DC Entertainment announced last year, is called DC Universe and has a landing page.

The site, announced today on social media, describes DC Universe as “a first-of-its kind, immersive digital experience designed just for DC fans” which includes unlimited access to its original series.

The DC-branded direct-to-consumer digital platform marks the second major new service launched by Warner Bros Digital Networks. DC Universe is designed as more than a traditional OTT service, rather as an immersive experience with fan interaction that encompasses comics as well as TV series.

Its inaugural slate includes high-profile comic book-themed original TV series: the live-action Titans, from the king of the CW DC universe Greg Berlanti, Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Sarah Schechter and Warner Bros TV, with Brenton Thwaites, Anna Diop, Teagan Croft and Ryan Potter set to star; and the anticipated revival of cult animated series Young Justice, from Warner Bros Animation. It will be titled Young Justice: Outsiders. Also on the slate is Harley Quinn, a half-hour adult animated action-comedy series from Powerless executive producers Justin Halpern & Patrick Schumacker and Dean Lorey via Warner Bros. Animation; and Metropolis, a new drama series from Gotham executive producers John Stephens and Danny Cannon and Warner Bros. TV.
