DC Universe will be rebranded as DC Universe Unlimited from 21 January 2021, marketed by Warner Bros and DC as “the ultimate coomic book subscription service”. Better still, an international rollout is planned for later into 2021, meaning Australia could actually gain access to it.
“Our fans love the platform’s robust library of comic books and, with the transformation, we will not disappoint,” DC’s Jim Lee said of the change. “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!”
DC’s current library of ongoing and legacy television shows — so the titles we’ve mentioned above alongside TV and films like Richard Donner’s Superman and the Wonder Woman TV series — will also find a new home on HBO Max next year.
In terms of local access, Australians can’t subscribe to HBO Max as yet. Even more confusing, titles like Titans will remain available through Netflix rather than HBO Max or an equivalent. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
