Netflix To Air DC's Titans Outside US

Robin's angst to spread worldwide.


Netflix has acquired the foreign streaming rights for DC Universe's new Titans series. The series launches in the US on October 12, while the Netflix streaming deal gives DC a cash infusion to show it elsewhere, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The series was originally developed for TNT, but then joined the newly launched DC Universe streaming service as its first scripted drama. It follows Robin as he steps out from the Bat-family to lead a new group of heroes, including superheroes Starfire, Raven, and Beast Boy. DC Universe costs $8 per month, bringing together original television series, comics, and classic movies.

Now Playing: Titans - Official Starfire Trailer | DC Universe

So far the service is in its infancy--it only launched last month--but we've been impressed by what seems like a solid start with room to grow. The model works similarly to CBS' All Access, which offers Star Trek Discovery as an exclusive streaming show.

"DC Universe, as a beta, isn't filled with too many bugs and actually works exceptionally well for something this large," wrote Mat Efring. "The only real downside is the lack of certain content, specifically the DCEUDC extended cinematic universe movies. DC Universe will be a thrill to DC Comics readers and enthusiasts but doesn't have that mass appeal it needs yet. Hopefully, that will change with the release of series like Titans."
