DC Universe App Offering 24 Hours of Free Access to Batman Movies, Comics

DC Universe Batman-Publicity-H 2019
The move is in celebration of the Dark Knight's 80th birthday.

DC has announced a novel way to celebrate the 80th anniversary of Batman’s debut in 1939’s Detective Comics No. 27: The streaming service DC Universe — which includes movies, television shows and comic books featuring DC characters — will offer all kinds of Batman-related content to everyone for free, for exactly 24 hours.

From midnight Eastern time through 11:59 p.m. ET on Saturday, March 30, fans will be able to stream 1989’s Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, as well as Batman: The Animated Series, Justice League and Justice League Unlimited and many more titles — a full list of available titles is below — in addition to accessing a specially curated list of Batman-centric comic book titles.

To accompany the 24-hour Bat-centric promotion, all new members who sign up to the service between March 29 and April 4 will receive a special rate for their first month: 80 cents, compared with the traditional $7.99 monthly fee. (After the first month at the lower rate, renewals will be $7.99 monthly.)

The 24-hour Batman free trial period will be promoted on social media using the hashtag #LongLiveTheBat and #Batman80. DC Universe, which launched in September 2018, is available in the U.S. on iOS, Amazon Fire TV, Android, Apple TV, Android TV and Roku and via the web.
