    I don't think WB is really expecting to sell this with just two shows. I do think there will be a comic component that will attract quite a bit of people to the service. There's also the proposed Hawk and Dove live action spin off and whatever other animated/live action projects that have yet to be announced.

    Considering that the demographic for season 3 is older, I don't think kids getting their parents to get the service is a concern of DC, since kids aren't the target audience any more.

    It's one reason I think this subscription platform fad is idiotic. It sounds like they're basically selling people one channel at a time by dangling finite exclusive content instead of a person subscribing to a cable company and getting every possible channel they want but not that one exclusive TV show unless it gets a Blu-ray release 1-2 years later. Because why - the studio doesn't want to play ball with companies like Direct TV or Netflix anymore? If this DC Digital Service has all 3 seasons of YJ, all issues of the comic book -- that's potentially a different story. If the service has every single animated series, movie, short, webisode created in the past 25 years -- that's a better hook, imo.

    I do think the service is definitely going to need more to draw people in then season 3 of Young Justice and a live action Titans show by Greg Berlanti.

    That's a scene from Teen Titans - The Judas Contract.

    Edit: What RR said.

    I can't imagine that the streaming service would have comics, but you're dead on that they gotta have SOMETHING more than two shows - and almost certainly will. The question I'm interested in seeing answered is "what will they have" - for example, the DVDs of the Swamp Thing movies and TV series are made by Shout! Factory and the show itself doesn't appear to be a WB production, what does that mean for the streaming rights? How about The Secrets of Isis, which is apparently owned by Universal Television despite also being a DC character?

    It will be really interesting to see what they've got. I'm still fingers-crossed for an official U.S. release of the 1997 Justice League of America TV movie - the launch of a DC streaming service within a year of the big budget JLA seems like as good a time as any.

    Traci Thirteen wasn't in that movie and I don't recognize this screenshot from it either. Or--was Traci a supporting character who was part of Jaime's arc?

    It really is from The Judas Contract. Admittedly, they didn't call her Traci 13 during the movie, but a girl named Traci who wears a T-shirt with "13" on it had to be a nod to her character from the comics. She was working at that soup kitchen, where Jaime Reyes also joined. I think the screenshot is when Dick Grayson comes looking for Jaime and talks to her.

    Thanks, I found a visual reference and her cast credit (voiced by Masasa Moyo) just a couple of minutes ago.

    Can't confirm the authenticity of this, but I read a Reddit post that said that Nolan North told them at NYCC that he just recorded episode 15. I personally believe this because Nolan did say some months ago what episode he had just recorded.

    Going by Greg's old season 1 production updates, this means that the first few episodes are possibly nearing post production.

    Did they ever give us an episode count?

    With this information, my guess would be that (assuming they release the entire season at once) we'll be able to see it for Fall 2018.
    If they are doing half-seasons, maybe we'll see something by next summer!

    You make some great points.

    I wonder, if they don't have too much else besides the two shows, then if they will start off by giving away one month subscription for free if you buy a movie (like JL) on DVD. That would also be a good deal.

    I'm fairly certain there won't be big episode drops all at once. That's new streaming app suicide.

    What is CBS doing with their platform, for example - isn't it $5.99 a month but then for their show Star Trek Discovery, it's a new episode every Sunday?

    Indeed. Another streaming method that seems to be gaining steam is "smaller releases, done more frequently". So a series gets launched with six episodes, then a few months later you drop six more, and so on and so forth (as opposed to releasing all 26 at once at then waiting two or more years to make more).

    I could see either strategy working for a DC service.

    I think some of these 'We have a barn - lets put on a show!" streaming channel plans are absolute idiocy from a pragmatic standpoint, I just don't see people having multiple $5/month throwaway income above and beyond already-expensive cable service, netflix, hulu, etc etc, especially given the nature and ubiquity of content piracy.

    None of which bothers me at all, except I can easily see idiot executives blaming YJ3 for not bringing in enough subscriptions, rather than the flawed concept of the subscription itself.

    EDIT - Nobody will be more pleasantly surprised than myself if they provide enough value to make me eat my words, of course....

    Greg Weisman, Brandon Vietti, Jason Spisak and Christopher Jones will be at Grand Rapid Comic Con (October 20-22). They have a panel together October 21 from 3:30-4:30 pm in Grand Gallery E-F to talk about "Transferring Comics To The Screen and Vice Versa".

    As long as there's some sort of comic component to the streaming app, like Marvel Unlimited, I don't see the service flopping.
