The entertainment marketplace is changing, and DC Entertainment’s new digital service is just the latest example.
According to Variety, the service will launch in 2018 with a live-actions Titans series as its centerpiece. The platform will also play host to a the long-awaited new season of the animated Young Justice, as well as scores of other DC shows past and present.
Titans had previously been in development at TNT, but was thought dead when the cable network backed out.
The move makes sense given that the last half-decade has seen an unprecedented amount of new broadcast content from DC. The Warner Brothers-owned CW has aired Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, iZombie, and other networks have gotten in the game including CBS (which played host to the first season of Supergirl) and NBC, which aired single seasons of Constantine and the Office-esque sitcom Powerless before cancelling both.
The move should come as no surprise to those who have been tracking the entertainment landscape for the last several years, as the cord-cutting revolution has led many content creators to bypass the middleman of broadcast and cable service providers and deliver their content directly to consumers.
Details on how much access to the service will cost are not yet available, but expect it to be on par with CBS All-Access (which will air the forthcoming Star Trek: Discovery) and similar competitors.
