Warner Bros. Streaming Service w/ Arrowverse?!!!

I hope not. I’ve been a huge DC fan but not putting the Arrowverse shows on DC Universe as well would be a major dissapointment. Not sure how accurate this news is but it’s better to speak out now. Are you ok with buying another streaming service if you want to watch the Arrowverse shows?

Well, I already have Netflix as it is and that’s another service.

Yeah the Arrowverse shows are already on Netflix so I’m already paying to watch them separately, I don’t find it that big of a deal.

There has been more information about the Warner Bros. streaming service rolling out today, but there is not yet any final word on how DC Universe will be packaged with the service, and it has not been fully declared that the CW shows WON’T be on DC Universe. It’s a bit too early to interrobang (such a good word) about it yet.

Thank you for the update Applejack, much better to hear anything from someone within DC Universe/DC than to guess from an article. :slight_smile:

Googles “interrobang”

Plus, there usually are a bunch of news articles that provide a different spin, yet announce the same content. This article did not have any “siblings” from what I saw. What I did see though is that Berlanti has a deal going on, from a few different sources.
Also, the link you provided mentioned that there is no set deal in place, similar to what Applejack said, but if it does go through, other shows like Big Bang Theory (potentially Supernatural) and other shows would be on there. Not bad if the service does something like that.

Applejack, my guess is that the CW shows will be accessed on the WB App through the DC Universe App. I would also guess the DCU will be available as a stand alone service as it is now, or on the WB as part of a bundle

I hope there is a bundle, I have/love HBO and DC Universe. So if there was almost a triple play with HBO/DCU/WarnerMedia service I would jump right on it.

HBO is a subsidiary of WarnerMedia, just like DC Comics. I agree it would be awesome if WarnerMedia had an app for all of its subsidiaries. Then Looney Tunes, HBO films, and Reign of the Supermen (for instance) could be watched within a couple seconds of one another.

It’s interesting that the list of films in that latter article didn’t include Harry Potter. But regardless, I’m paid through mid December and I’m prepared to see what happens then. Hopefully there will still be a DC option at a reasonable price.

It says the entire library of films released by Warner Brothers Pictures… not sure I buy going out that the entire library will be released. I mean maybe but that is a LOT to all be availiable on launch. but we shall see I guess.

I don’t think it mentioned the entire library because it talked about content will still be curated as well as still allowing DC Universe to keep exclusive content like Titans, which is produced by Warner Bros.

I’d be very surprised if the contents of the entire Warner Brothers film vaults are on the WB service throughout however long that service will last (I hope it has a very long, glorious and prosperous run for years and years).

WB has the largest film catalog in history, surpassing all of the other movie studios by quite a bit. Their entire film catalog (which, again is HUGE) has never been released on any home video format in the past or present. I see no reason why streaming media would change that, especially if the content is rotated like ALL other streaming services do.

In any event, (and usual) there’s nothing to hyperventilate over. Just chill out and relax. Everything will be fine.

Even more interesting is the reporting that WB wants ‘original DC Comics programming’ for its streaming service starting in 2020.

I mean, they could always borrow and expand the DCU stuff that’s already in production … but imagine a world where BOTH streaming services are creating separate, all-new avenues of content…

What a great time to be a DC fan…

At least now, on most streaming services, you don’t have to waste your time watching commercials.
