Wonder Woman rebirth is there. So, it can be assumed comics will be included along with the film and tv backlog

It’s definitely ‘Batman Returns’... really excited for the announcement, hopefully with pricing details included.

Saw that too, but how many/which comics is now the question. I'm hoping it's a DC version of Marvel Unlimited, with almost all of the back catalog, minus current issues.

This'll save me a little on Comixology which is $6 per month. With a backlog of films and television, it'll be tremendous in savings.

The fact they have films, tv, and comics all coupled with new content is enough. However, pricing is important at this point

I'm disappointed this is going to be U.S.-only, at least at the start. I understand there are likely rights issues involved but it still seems unfair to fans outside of the U.S.

I'm still looking forward to learning more and it's cool to hear that the Wonder Woman series will be an HD remaster which hopefully means a Blu-ray release.

July 19th:
Via the Hollywood Reporter, the Service will launch this Fall, and they announced the price.
Coinciding with the launch of the DC Universe Experience, a pop-up attraction at the Hilton San Diego Gaslamp Quarter, DC and Warner Bros. announced that pre-orders for DC Universe have opened at DCUniverse.com for an annual fee of $74.99 (plus tax, in applicable areas), with a monthly subscription of $7.99 also available at launch. All fans who pre-order before launch will receive an additional three months at no cost.
July 22nd:
I found a video with Jim Lee talking about the original live-action shows that will be on DC Universe. This must have been before Stargirl was announced.

EDIT:
IGN also has an interview with Geoff Johns from Comic-Con. He talks a little about the live-action shows between approximately the 0:42 - 3:34 minutes marks.

At Fan Expo Toronto, Dan Didio stated the app is set to launch in Canada in the near future. It is currently in beta. Ideally this means other worldwide locations will follow.

One of the good things about Disney's Fox acquisition is that they finally acquired the distribution rights to A New Hope. I hope they can re-release the original trilogy without the Special Edition alterations.
Don't just kinda TV. Time Warner Cable is now WarnerMedia Satellite by AT&T|DIRECTV.
Vasantham has arrived.
I might as well need to make my April Fool's Day pranks for this year because why not, yet there's also the issue with studying.
