It’s finally happened, DC Universe Infinite is going international! The original app launched in the US back in September 2018, although it’s undergone a few changes since its inception. Initially, the service was used for streaming DC shows and movies but also offered the option to read comics digitally. The streaming content was removed in January 2021 and the app was updated to contain just comics. Now, after more than 3 years, DC Universe Infinite will be available outside of the US.
Here’s what DC Senior Vice President and General Manager, Anne Leung DePies, had to say on DC.com:
DC is thrilled to soon welcome comic book fans from other countries to our digital service for the first time. Making DC UNIVERSE INFINITE available globally is one of our major priorities and this launch is the first of many more to come. It is one more way fans of every generation around the world can engage with DC’s iconic Super Heroes!
At the time of writing this article, the app is already live in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. DC Universe Infinite will reach UK shores on April 28, 2022, with Brazil and Mexico currently scheduled for Summer 2022.
Loads of DC content
Fans will have access to over 25,000 comics from DC’s archives, right up to modern-day (6 months after retail release) as well as access to digital-first comics on the day of release (such as Harley Quinn: The Animated Series: The Eat.
