That’s because the DC Universe subscription service is launching an Xbox One app, growing a platform lineup that already supports various iOS and Android devices as well as desktop and mobile web browsers. In addition to housing a collection of more than 20,000 comics available on demand, DC Universe also offers streaming video connected to a variety of DC properties.
There are old TV shows like Batman: The Animated Series, Wonder Woman, and the recently added Shazam! alongside newer offerings like Doom Patrol, Titans, and Young Justice: Outsiders (as well as upcoming shows Swamp Thing, Harley Quinn, and Stargirl). DC Universe is also where the brand’s animated movies premiere; Justice League vs. the Fatal Five is coming next, on April 16.
There are live-action movies as well. It’s a rotating selection, but right now it looks like the four ’80s/’90s Batman movies — two from director Tim Burton starring Michael Keaton, one starring Val Kilmer, and one starring George Clooney — are available. (There’s also a variety of animated movies you can stream.)
DC Universe costs $7.99 per month or $74.99 per year. It may take some time for the Xbox app to roll out in your area, so just keep checking if it’s not there yet. You can sign up for the service either through the app or online at dcuniverse.com.
