DC Universe — a streaming platform that includes original TV shows, classic DC Comics movies, and digital comic books — has been off to a hot start with its original shows since it launched in September.

Its first three originals — “Titans,” “Young Justice: Outsiders,” and “Doom Patrol” — have consistently been among the seven most in-demand streaming shows in the world, according to weekly data provided to Business Insider by Parrot Analytics.

A spokesperson told Business Insider that the biggest upticks in free-trial sign-ups, aside from the initial launch, have corresponded with the premiere of new series.
