DC Universe to drop TV and movie content and go comics only

All DC television series and movies will move to HBO Max leaving their DC Universe app as a comics only platform.

Launched in September 2018 the DC Universe app was intended to be a one-stop destination for all things DC related.

Alongside an extensive catalogue of comic book titles, the platform was intended to play host to live-action television series and films, as well as animated content.

Now, with HBO Max becoming the jewel in the crown of Warner Bros’ streaming services, DC’s TV and film output will switch to HBO Max, the platform that will debut the Snyder Cut of Justice League later this year.

The app will be rebranded as DC Universe Infinite and will essentially act as a direct competitor to Marvel Unlimited. Marvel’s digital comic book subscription service.

Boasting more than 24,000 titles, the service will provide unlimited reading of DC’s extensive catalogue of titles, including their Vertigo and DC Black Label imprints that offer more adult content. An upgraded user interface should make browsing and organising titles more intuitive.

Existing users of DC Universe will find their lists and library have moved across to the new app. Ready to pick up reading where you left off.

Pricing is set at $7.99 per month or $74.99 annually with DC Universe Infinite launching tomorrow, January 21st. The service will be available in the U.S. first with a global roll out expected later in the year.
