That's an interesting idea. I've also wondered how they come up with enough content to justify the cost. Clearly it won't be tons of new programming right out of the gate. Will they make previous DC animated series available? Previous films? I'm onboard I think as long as Titans is a level up (or more comic faithful) from/than, say, the CW DC shows.

I think that's the intent--to have all the old animated shows available as well. But still...DC has a very limited library compared to other streaming services, even if you take all the old stuff into account.

I agree.

even if the DC service is only $3 or $5 a month, I'm still not paying that subscription to just watch one show ( Titans ).

That's why I'm hoping there will be a free tier where you can watch the show on their site a day later ( or even a week later ).

otherwise, I'll just seek out alternative video streaming sites where I'm sure the eps will pop up. though, I'd prefer to watch directly from DC for the best quality and less hassle. but I'm not paying for that service, though.

The amount of stuff you could put on a "DC-only" streaming service is actually pretty significant.

Here's a list of everything, television-wise, that's been based on DC properties, courtesy of Wikipedia:

Ehhhh I still wouldn't call that list significant.

Plus, who even knows what movies and current shows they'll put on the service. The licenses that put these shows/movies on other services like Netflix probably won't expire for another few years. By the time they do, and go to this "exclusive" service, I bet the service will be dead.

^ How is 71 different TV properties (not counting aired/unaired Pilots) "not significant"?

You've also got numerous movies that could be put on the service as well.

DC has more content available for its own streaming service than people are giving it credit for.

Yeah I'm REALLY not a fan of the fact that EVERY studio is now trying to jump into the streaming game. It's gonna get beyond confusing. Disney is starting theirs, apparently DC is starting one. How many more are gonna pop up, and who the hell is gonna be able to afford ALL these services?!

Well Netflix currently has about 15,000 titles to stream. Amazon Prime says it has 17,000. So yeah, I'm sticking with 71 being "not significant." Even when you add the movies in.

I bet the only people that would even consider subscribing are the type of folks that are on the Hype--the people with a very targeted interest in comics/DC. Which is way too small of a market for the service to stay viable long-term.

It's just that the market is becoming way too saturated with streaming sites. Disney is going to run into the same problem with their new streaming service--even though I think they'll last longer since they have lots of children's programming from their owned cable channels to include.

I'm probably not likely to subscribe, but I'd consider it if I have free weekends to binge this show (after it's released in its entirety) along with all the Bruce Timm shows. Then I'd cancel it after I finish.

I think its less a matter of "too few" as "too narrow". To make a viable streaming service, you need breadth of content. If the only thing a service provides is DC TV shows, the only people who'll sign up are hardcore DC fans.

Now, if they put the majority of WB-owned content up on it, including all their TV shows of all types, *then* we'd be talking. Though I suspect they still wouldn't end up succeeding, ultimately, as the market probably won't support a whole bunch of studio/network specific services.

This would be the dream if you ask me. As long as the price is right.

I have to admit, as a Blüdhaven Nightwing fan, I'm happy to see that.

Honestly, the whole "Nightwing by night, cop by day" thing should have been used by people after Dixon.

CW's Titans Teaser Trailer - (Fan-Made)

20K views

Here is my version of a Titans show on the CW. Since we already have some of the members already, as well as, villains then it should work out. I tried to focus on the main five, such as Nightwing, Arsenal, Mon-El (Superboy), Miss Martian, and Kid Flash. I also tried to include some past villains from the shows, comic series, and the Teen Titans animated show. If you're a MAJOR fan of the Teen Titans then you should recognize some of the characters in the trailer. Anyways, hope you guys enjoy!

It would seem that Brad Anderson of Fringe is directing the pilot.

Tell you what, if they get Batman: The Brave and the Bold on there I will struggle to pass. Love that show, as does my youngest.

nice!!

my only "issue" is his age. He's 22 and Raven actress is only, what, 13 or 14?

so I guess that nixes any possible Raven/BB romance, which I wanted to see.

Based on the rest of the casting choices, perhaps they should have cast an older actress for Raven.

but man, she really is the baby of the group........lol.

I want as little romance between members of the team as possible so I'm happy with it.

aww....c'mon. there's got to be some loving......lol.

I predict the main love drama, if there is one, will revolve around Dick, Starfire, and Dick's police partner.
