DC Comics has just introduced a new streaming service (finally) to compete against Marvel Comics Unlimited service. Below is a small FAQ on my experience with it.
DC Blog 6/28/18: Introducing DC Universe: A First-of-its-Kind Digital Subscription Service Designed Especially For Fans
- What is DC Universe?
It is a streaming service for watching DC Movies, TV, and reading comics.
- 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?
DC Comics has a streaming service for DC shows and movies which Marvel currently does not have. The content is generally for an older audience and can contain sex scenes with live action nudity.
- 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?
- How big is the comic library?
As of 1/14/19 there are 2932.
As of 2/10/19 there are 4251.
As of 2/12/19 there are 4432. (Nearly 200 added in 2 days.)
As of 2/24/19 there are 4625. (Nearly 200 added in 12 days.)
As of 3/11/19 there are 5332. (707 added in 15 days.)
As of 3/25/19 there are 4871. (460 removed in 14 days. This may also be a bug in the counting system. I noticed that when viewing all comics several duplicates were listed. After refreshing the page these were no longer present.)
As of 4/3/19 there are 7130.
As of 4/12/19 there are 7239. (109 added in 9 days.)
As of 4/14/19 there are 7239. (0 added in 2 days.)
As of 4/16/19 there are 16095. (8856 added overnight!)
As of 4/24/19 there are 21608. (5513 added since last week!)
- Is this for all ages?
No. Considering the live action shows like Doom Patrol can contain nudity I'd say it is for adults only.
- How recent are the DCUniverse comic releases? New comics are released on DCUniverse every week and are 12 months old or older. ref
