DC Entertainment intends for its DC Universe streaming service to launch in late August 2018, according to DC's Community Manager Dani Snow. During an interview on the podcast James Bonding, Snow got on the topic of the app and revealed her company's intentions for the service.
“We are about to launch, I think, late August, our DC digital platform, which will be a hub for all things DC,” Snow said. “Right now, we’re working on getting everything from the back catalog of animated TV shows and movies on there now, but we will also be producing. I think, right now, we have four in production, original shows, including Swamp Thing.”
DC Universe currently has four announced live-action shows in development (Swamp Thing, Titans, Doom Patrol, Metropolis) and two animated series (Young Justice: Outsiders, Harley Quinn). But it'll be more than just video content according to Snow - there will also be a comics component.
"There will be digital movies, TV shows that you can watch, streaming,” Show said. “We’re going to have a lot of comics on there. There’s going to be a lot of good stuff on there."
Snow doesn't specify the type of comics will be offered with DC Universe, or if it will be new or reprinted content.
