Review: DC Universe Streaming Service

On Batman Day (September 15), DC Universe was released, and it has lived up to my expectations, for the most part. . .  Here are my Pros and Cons for DC Universe!

Pros

  • Right away, I was happy to see that there was an app because it makes viewing the service on your phone a lot easier
  • There is a huge selection of animated TV shows and movies available
  • The older TV shows on it, like Wonder Woman (1970’s) and Batman the Animated Series (1990’s), were remastered, so the graphics and audio were a lot better
  • There will be original shows coming out like Titans, Swamp Thing, Doom Patrol, and Young Justice Season 3
  • The comic book selection is massive and literally has hundreds of comic books which include new ones, classic ones, and even some of the first ones ever published
  • There is an encyclopedia option where you can find out about practically every character in all of DC Comics
  • There is an option to view merchandise and collectibles that are exclusively available for purchase by DC Universe members
  • The $7.99 price per month or $74.99 per year (a year and three months if you pre-ordered it) is pretty average for a streaming service, and I don’t think it is as bad as it could be

Cons

  • Although they app works pretty well now, at first it kept on crashing, and it still does sometimes
  • On my phone, I can’t use the service on the website because it just keeps on saying to open or download the app
  • There is a good amount of live action movies on the service, but some of them are only on it for a limited time, so I don’t think there are as many on there as they made it seem
  • The original shows aren’t out on the streaming service yet, and depending on when you buy it (if you bought it for a full year), you might not get to see some of them
  • The option to look at the exclusive merchandise isn’t fully functional yet
  • I wish that there was a way to download the app on things like game systems (similar to how you can with Netflix and HULU), so that people could watch it on an actual TV if they don’t have Apple TV

Overall, I love DC Universe, and I would totally recommend it to the ultimate DC Comics fan.
