DC announced Wednesday that its digital subscription service, DC Universe, will launch on Saturday, Sept. 15 - Batman Day, fittingly - while the premiere of its live-action Titans series will drop Friday, Oct. 12. In addition to five episodes of DC Daily a week, original series like Titans will run on Fridays, starting on October 12th.

Titans' first season will consist of 12 episodes, to be released weekly on the streaming service.

The streaming service is set to launch on September 15th, aka Batman Day. Future hosts include John Barrowman, Samm Levine, Harley Quinn Smith, Sam Humphries, Hector Navarro, Clarke Wolfe, Brian Tong, Markeia McCarty, and John Kourounis.

Tottenham laid down a marker with United win, says Harry Kane
But there is little evidence from an illustrious career of an ability to turn things around once the going gets tough. United have lost two of their first three Premier League games for the first time since 1992-93.

Cuomo directs flags to half-staff in honor of McCain
How did you feel when you heard that John McCain had passed away? President Trump , however, was not invited to speak. US Flag Code states that flags be lowered "on the day of death and the following day for a Member of Congress".

Battle of the YouTubers Logan Paul and KSI ends in controversy
The fight got even more heated after the second round when KSI intentionally threw a jab at Paul which nearly incited a brawl. The undercard is also made up of YouTubers, including the main card's brothers, Jake Paul and Deji Olatunji.

During the event Smith also unveiled the inaugural talent that will be working on the daily news show. If you pre-order your yearly service, DC will throw in three additional months for free.

DC Universe will be able to stream on the PC, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Google Chromecast, iOS, and Android devices. Joining them along the way are the hot-headed Starfire and loveable Beast Boy. The brief clip sees Nightwing infiltrating a metahuman laboratory run by the villain Bedlam with an in-ear assist from Oracle, a.k.a Barbara Gordon. But it also gives us some delightful Dick Grayson and Barbara interactions, which gives shippers (like me) joy.

DC Universe bills itself as a "first-of-its-kind digital subscription service". Subscribers can also access fan-favorite titles including Batman: Gothic, The Authority series, Green Arrow: Year One, Shazam, The New Teen Titans, Identity Crisis, The Batman Adventures, Jack Kirby's New Gods, and more. Everything from what features the apps will contain, what classic films and television shows will be featured as well as what original shows are on the horizon.
