  1. Based on what I saw from the TITANS teaser trailer, I think I will pass, Hulu and Amazon Prime are more than enough for my wife and me!

  2. Yeah, no. Netflix and Amazon for me. As much as I’m interested in Young Justice, I am not paying 8 bucks just for one cartoon.

  3. I may give it a try, but like others have said, I think DC may be overestimating how much people want another streaming service. Whether I remain or not will be dependent almost entirely on the comics content, not the streaming content.

  4. I’ll do what a lot of people will do – wait and get a test subscription or buy for one month and binge what a bunch of series.

  5. pragmaticgolem, getting the rights to old shows and movies in other countries can take time as other content providers often already have contracts for that content. I imagine they are going to focus on the US and then expand if it does well.

    In the meantime, I’m guessing outside the US, they will sell rights to these shows to other networks or even to other streaming services like Netflix.

    Example, Star Trek Discovery is on CBS’ streaming service inside the US, but in Canada it aired on the Space channel and was available on the streaming service CraveTV (Bell Media owns both).
