The Arrowverse is streaming once more in India. Amazon Prime Video introduced over the weekend that it had secured streaming rights to Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Gotham, and Legends of Tomorrow. Four of these belong to the Arrowverse, whereas Gotham is standalone and unrelated. The Flash arrived Monday on Prime Video with all episodes, together with final week’s The Flash season 7 episode 10. All six seasons of Supergirl will probably be obtainable subsequent Monday, May 31. Arrow, Gotham, and Legends of Tomorrow are all coming quickly — the latter is the one ongoing sequence amongst them, as the opposite two have completed their runs. We’ve reached out to Amazon for remark.
For Indian DC followers, this will even assist offset the troubles with Colors Infinity. The Viacom18-owned channel has been the cable residence of Arrowverse in India for some time now, however it has not been airing the newest seasons of any ongoing sequence: The Flash season 7, Supergirl season 6, Legends of Tomorrow season 6, Black Lightning season 4, or Batwoman season 2. The pandemic is accountable, Colors Infinity says, however that hasn’t stopped Amazon from getting its arms on all the brand new Arrowverse episodes. It’s likelier that it has to do one thing with Amazon’s new deal. We’ve reached out to WarnerMedia for clarification and can replace once we hear again.
With this, the majority of the Arrowverse — Arrow and Black Lightning have been on Netflix, for what that is value — returns to streaming in India practically 13 months since they left our screens due to Hooq shutting down. (Hooq had a deal in place with Disney+ Hotstar that briefly made it each the house of Marvel and DC.) Warner Bros. Television Distribution had remained mum on the matter ever since, besides to say that it was at all times in discussions with companions and that it recognised that DC followers in India needed to look at their favorite superheroes on streaming. Now, after a full yr and extra, these followers have been seen by Prime Video and Warner Bros., although not all of them annoyingly.
For occasion, there’s nonetheless no phrase on the opposite two remaining Arrowverse sequence: Batwoman, and Superman & Lois. Batwoman has aired on Colors Infinity up to now, however Superman & Lois has but to formally grace India. Neither have been picked by Amazon seemingly. That can also be the case for different DC TV exhibits in Doom Patrol, Swamp Thing, Pennyworth, and DC’s Stargirl. The Superman prequel spin-off Krypton was briefly obtainable in India, however it’s not presently streaming. Titans is the one different DC present formally obtainable right here, on Netflix. While Marvel is consolidated on Disney+ Hotstar, it appears Indian DC followers won’t ever get an analogous remedy.
Still, it is now going to be higher than it has been. The Flash is now streaming on Prime Video. Supergirl will be a part of it on May 31, with Gotham and Legends of Tomorrow following quickly. Arrow is streaming on Netflix in the mean time, and can expectedly transfer to Prime Video quickly.
