Default Streaming DC UNIVERSE

The new trailer is everything and more than I'd hoped for. New shows like YJ season 3, Titans, Doom Patrol, and Swamp Thing will be on the service as well as what looks like the ENTIRE DC library. There's animated movies, tv series both old and new including the Fleischer Superman shorts, Batman Beyond, etc.

Now what REALLY caught me off guard? The service includes monthly DC Comics. It looks like only the top character's titles, but it was mentioned the service is still just going into Beta testing soon. The idea you could pick monthly comics and series in the future and not JUST what they offer in the beginning has me beyond speechless. There's also a Networking type of feature like PS4 or something, but IDK about social networking in that manner.

The only downside is due to deals with other streaming services [looking at Netflix and Hulu] DC Universe won't have the CW stuff.

On the original content front it's been mentioned the studios are looking at Kelsey Grammer to play the Chief in Doom Patrol... which would be F***ING AMAZING.

With everything finally coming forward about the service what does everybody think? Will this be a new beginning for the digital era of DC Comics?

It looks good but it seems like everything is getting it's own streaming service. At some point we'll be paying to stream commercials.

It's true. I can't really afford these. I currently do Netflix and am on a trial run of WWE Network (for old wrestlings shows). Theoretically, I'd love to have Youtube Red, Amazon Prime, CBS Access, and now this, but that's just not practical on my budget.

5 to 10 years all these streaming services will realize their cutting up far to small of a pie to survive. At which point the first "Streaming Hub" service will come into being where you pay one price and like with Cable TV pick a "Package" of streaming services to get access to for a single price. Its coming mark my words.

I agree. It's running wild at this point. But it does seem for now that there are a number of people who are willing to pay for two or three services.

It initially might be. But even Netflix is looking at adding ads between shows now. It's something that will happen. I mean IHeart Radio and most "Streaming" services both radio and "Television" are running ads now. Its an inevitability given the massive revenue source that providing ad space can be for these services on top of their subscriptions.

I don't mind the Youtube ads so much when I'm watching a long video (like 30 minutes or more), but it's annoying when I just pop in for a movie trailer (which is already an ad!) or a quick song and I have to wait to skip a truck commercial first.
