As Netflix loses all of its Marvel Cinematic Universe content ahead of next year’s launch of Disney+, comic book properties are suddenly a hot commodity in the streaming world. The latest major news concerning comic adaptations comes from the DC Universe streaming service, home to all of DC Comics’ most iconic superheroes. Starting today, DC Universe is now available on all Amazon Fire TV devices.
DC Universe is home to the biggest names in the superhero world including Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, Aquaman, and more. To bring these timeless heroes to the streaming world, DC Comics launched DC Universe earlier this year. The service combines original television shows, animated series and films from DC’s extensive catalogue like the Christopher Reeve Superman films, and even a rotating selection of DC Comics available to read.
Some of the original titles on DC Universe include Titans, a live-action adaptation of the Teen Titans, and Young Justice: Outsiders, an animated series about teenage superheroes who fight crime on the sly. DC Universe has announced many new series in the works including a live action Swamp Thing horror series and Metropolis, a live-action series focusing on the human denizens of Superman’s world.
DC Universe has been previously primarily a mobile and web browser-based streaming service, but the service is expanding its compatibility to reach a wider audience. Starting this week, all Amazon Fire TV devices including the Stick, Cube, and Recast can now all stream DC Universe.
DC Universe subscriptions start at $7.99 per month or $79.99 per year, but the service is currently running a holiday promotion which offers your first 3 months for $3.99 per month or your first year for $59.99. If you’re itching for more comic content in your life, give DC Universe a try for a few months
