The DC Universe streaming service is undergoing a relaunch including a name change and content shift. The platform will relaunch on January 21, 2021 under the new name “DC Comics Infinite,” with a more focused content library containing comics only. Current DC Universe subscribers will not need to create a new account as their DC Universe login will transfer to DC Universe Infinite.
More than 24,000 comic books will be available on rebranded subscription service, and subscribers will get early access to upcoming titles like Aquaman: Deep Dives, Batman: Gotham Nights, DCeased: Hope at World’s End, Superman: Man of Tomorrow, and more.
Additionally, readers will have the option to download all comics, graphic novels and originals to their tablet or mobile device for offline reading. New releases will be available on DC Comics Infinite six months after the release date.
“Our fans love the platform’s robust library of comic books and, with the transformation, we will not disappoint,” said DC Publisher and Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee. “I’m excited to share that not only will DC UNIVERSE INFINITE members still be able to read all of the great comics that they’ve enjoyed but new issues are debuting on the platform quicker than before, digital first exclusives are being created, and the members-only events will begin as soon as possible. There has never been a better time to be a DC fan!”
The fan-favorite community area will be free to all registered and premium subscribers with a full calendar of events planned for 2021. DC Universe Infinite will be available on the web, iOS and Android devices for $7.99 a month or $74.99 a year ($6.25 a month).
This rebranding doesn’t come as a huge surprise since we already knew a lot of the DC Universe content including Harley Quinn, Stargirl, and Doom Patrol were migrating over to HBO Max. In an earlier post, we even speculated that all of DC Universe’s shows and movies might absorb into HBO Max. This new official rebranding announcement proves our prediction true.
