DC Blog 6/28/18: Introducing DC Universe: A First-of-its-Kind Digital Subscription Service Designed Especially For Fans
- What is DC Universe Infinite?
It is a streaming service for watching DC Movies, TV, and reading comics.
On 1/21/21 it was announced that DC Universe would now be DC Universe Infinite. ref. This includes the Vertigo imprint, DC Black Label, comics come to DC Universe Unlimited in 6 months as opposed to the previous 12 months, and Free to Read comics. DC Universe videos were moved over to HBO Max around August 2020 ref.
- How much is it?
The price is less per month than Marvel's at $7.99 vs. $9.99, but more annually at $74.99 vs Marvel's $69.00.
- When did DC Universe start?
- How is this different from Marvel's Digital comics Unlimited?
The comics list is much more extensive than Marvel's.
- Is DC Comics available on Comixology Unlimited?
Yes! For some time DC Comics was only available in print or for individual sale on Comixology. As of 1/8/19 DC Comics is now available on Comixology Unlimited ref. Comixology is a digital service much like Marvel Unlimited or DC Universe.
- DC Comics crosses over to other series a lot. Are there any curated or collected lists?

As of 1/14/19 there are 2932.
