Update 01-11-2019: We wanted to repost this story to remind our INTERNATIONAL READERS ONLY that ‘Titans’ begins streaming today on Netflix. In the U.S., the streaming rights remain exclusive to the DC Universe app.
With the help of Netflix, DC New Live-Action Titans series will be available to stream worldwide, reports Variety.
Warner Bros. Television and the streaming giant have inked a deal that will allow Netflix to carry the superhero drama in International markets. The reason for the move is that DC’s newly launched streaming service is not available outside of the United States. One market that will not see the series launch is China, as they do hot have Netflix available there.
This sort of deal is not out of the ordinary for Netflix, as they currently stream Star Trek: Discovery internationally. The streaming platform that series is housed on in the U.S. and Canada is CBS All Access, which is not available in any other market, so Netflix was licensed the rights for that show.
Titans follows young heroes from across the DC Universe as they come of age and find belonging in a gritty take on the classic Teen Titans franchise. Dick Grayson and Rachel Roth, a special young girl possessed by a strange darkness, get embroiled in a conspiracy that could bring Hell on Earth. Joining them along the way are the hot-headed Starfire and loveable Beast Boy. Together they become a surrogate family and team of heroes.
Titans debuted Oct. 12 on the DC Universe streaming service and stars Brenton Thwaites as Robin, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, Alan Ritchson as Hawk, Minka Kelly as Dove, and Lindsey Gort as Amy Rohrbach.
