Video Content Moves to HBO Max

The new service will be called DC Universe Infinite but will carry a finite array of comics: Over 24,000 titles at launch, including monthly comics, graphic novels, and digital-first comics. Going forward, new comics will be added to the service six months after the print release date. Readers will be able to download comics and graphic novels to their personal devices for offline reading. The service will cost $7.99 per month or $74.99 per year ($6.25 per month), so DC is not offering a discount despite removing the video content. However, current subscribers and those who sign up during the pre-order period will receive a thank-you voucher for merchandise in the DC store; monthly subscribers will get a $10 voucher, and annual subscribers will receive $25. Also, from now through October 30, 2020, DC Universe subscribers can add HBO Max for $4.99 per month.
HBO Max will carry DC’s streaming content, both new shows and a selection of older videos and DC Universe Originals. Content moving to HBO Max includes Young Justice, Titans, Doom Patrol, and the first season of DC’s Stargirl. The second season of Stargirl is exclusive to The CW (see "DC Universe’s ‘Stargirl’ Renewed by The CW").
