Nothing against DC Universe, but as much content as they boast, it doesn’t seem like it’s been enough for many average customers — the ones who are casually into DC stuff but don’t necessarily need a whole service dedicated to it. Sure, DC Universe may not be for those people, but it does seem to restrict the potential audience of shows like Titans and Doom Patrol, ultimately making it impossible for the service to truly succeed.
It sounds like DC Universe is starting to roll back exclusivity of their programming, starting with their upcoming Stargirl series, which comes from super executive producer Greg Berlanti, whose Arrow started a whole living, breathing entity on The CW.
According to THR, Stargirl will not only air on the streaming service, but one day later, it will appear on The CW. The show will also appear on The CW’s free digital platforms, pretty much allowing anyone with an internet connection have access to the latest DC show.
The CW isn’t the only thing I have my eye on. DC Universe is own by the company WarnerMedia, which is opening its HBO Max service next year. Previous teasers for the streaming service seemed to indicate that DC Universe would be included as a part of the major package, so when all said and done, it doesn’t sound like a lot of the content on DC Universe will be exclusive for long, even if WarnerMedia plans to keep DC Universe as-is, as has been previously stated.
Do you think the spreading of their DC Universe properties will only further devalue the service? Let us know your thoughts down below!
