Some information may become outdated with time
This is not an official source of information, just me doing my best to answer some FAQs, so sorry if any information isn’t correct and please correct me in the comments.
Q:When will DC Universe be on PS4?
A: It’s an incredibly common request, so they’re probably working on it. However, there is currently no official release date or even an estimated date of arrival.
Q:Where is Batman vs. TMNT?
A:They have no news on if or when it is coming. It is not included in the list of movies coming to this service this month or next month. It is probably difficult to secure the rights to since it features characters owned by another company.
Q:Where is the rest of Young Justice: Outsiders?
A:Episodes will start releasing on July 2nd.
Q: Where is Vertigo (or some other comic)?
A: In order to have the full library of DC Comics, DC Universe agreed to NOT have some things on the service. Comics not included on the service are:
- Comics publishes less than a year ago
- Comics under an imprint, like Vertigo
- Comics that were originally published in graphic novels
- Comics that exclusively target a young audience
- Recent hits, like Tom King’s Mister Miracle or Batman: White Knight
There are exception to these rules. For example, Doom Patrol and Swamp Thing are on this service despite being Vertigo titles because DC Universe has original series based on them.
Q:Why are episodes of originals released weekly?
A: Most streaming services release episodes weekly. The only services that drop a full season at a time are Netflix and, more recently, Amazon Prime Video. This makes sense from a business standpoint. If somebody is super excited for a single show and wants to watch it as soon as possible, companies don’t want that person to purchase a month of the service and then immediately drop it or just use their free trial. However, the weekly release of episodes is also very good for the community. It builds excitement, sparks conversation, allows for weekly watch alongs, and lets us experience the show together as a community.
Q:Why isn’t there every DC show & movie here?
A:This service was never marketed as having everything, and there are multiple reasons why not everything is here. There are many DC shows and movies that are not owned by WB. Some shows and movies were already licensed out to other services before the creation of this service, so they can’t come here until the contract expires. And last of all, it is not feasible for such a niche service to have everything on it. It wouldn’t make a profit and would have to be shut down.
