The DC Universe is making its big promotional push during San Diego Comic-Con 2018, and along with the release of the first Titans trailer, we also got a first look at the actual details of DC's new streaming service -- including the all-important detail of how much it costs.
Here's the breakdown:
- A year-long subscription for DC Universe will run you $74.99, plus whatever sales tax is applicable in your state.
- If you want to take it slow, you can do a monthly subscription, it will cost you $7.99 a month.
The monthly subscription ultimately comes out to be about $95 a year, but probably closer to $100 when you factor in taxes in a lot of states. It's a good play for DC/Warner Bros. either way, but the real measure will be seeing if there is enough brand power left in DC Entertainment to generate a healthy amount of annual subscriptions up front. The next measure will be seeing what the drop-off rate is in monthly subscribers in a six month to year-long span.
You can read the full details of the DC Universe service in the press release below; let us know in the comments what you think about the pricing.
