DC announced this week that they’re launching “DC Daily”, a daily news show that will stream exclusively on their upcoming DC Universe digital service. DC says that the new show will offer fans entertaining news and insights, exclusive guest appearances, interviews and panel discussions with some of the most knowledgeable voices in the DC universe.
Those who don’t subscribe to DC Universe, which is scheduled to launch later this year, won’t be left completely in the dark. Clips from DC Daily will be made available on YouTube and DC’s other social media platforms.
To kick things off, director and comic book fan Kevin Smith will be hosting a live stream on Wednesday, August 29th to tell fans all about DC Daily and what they can expect from DC Universe. The stream will be available for free on Facebook, Twitch and YouTube.
