DCUI ULTRA Tier: Community FAQ

DC Universe Infinite ULTRA Tier launches October 10!

The official launch of DC Universe Infinite ULTRA Tier is upon us, and the team here at DC Comics is thrilled to bring the ultimate DC fan’s membership to all of you! We understand there are a lot of questions from the community members, so this thread will act as a living FAQ so everyone can get all the information needed about ULTRA Tier. This FAQ will be updated throughout the week as more questions and information come in, so keep your eyes out in this thread for answers to any questions you may have! Let’s get into it:

What is DCUI ULTRA?

DC Universe Infinite ULTRA is the newest membership tier for the DC Universe Infinite service. With ULTRA Tier, users will be able to read the latest releases from DC one month after they are available in comic shops. Recent titles that will be available to ULTRA subscribers on Monday, October 10 include Black Adam #1-4, Batman: Beyond the White Knight #1-4, Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #1-4, Flashpoint Beyond #1-5, Poison Ivy #1-4, and more. The brand-new ULTRA tier launches at 12pm PT on Monday, October 10, and is available for a special limited-time introductory price of $99.99 USD a year in the US, $119.99 CAN in Canada, $134.99 AUD in Australia, $134.99 NZD in New Zealand and £72.99 BPS in the U.K., plus applicable taxes. The introductory pricing rate is available until November 28, 2022, and remains valid as long as your ULTRA Annual subscription is in good standing and you do not cancel. Current DC UNIVERSE INFINITE subscribers can upgrade their monthly and annual subscriptions to ULTRA. Members who remain on their current monthly or annual subscription will continue to receive new comics six months after they are available at comic shops.


How do I upgrade to DCUI ULTRA?

There are a couple of ways for you to gain access to the DC Universe Infinite ULTRA tier. Once you have registered and logged into DC Universe Infinite, you can always navigate to MyDC > Settings and click on ‘Subscription’. From here, select the ULTRA plan and complete the required information to upgrade to this tier. Additionally, you can click/tap on any comic book with the ‘ULTRA’ badge to be taken through the upgrade flow (these comic books will appear throughout the app). Once you are in the comic book detail screen, click on 'Read Now with ULTRA’. From here, you can upgrade to ULTRA by selecting the ULTRA plan and completing the required information. Once you upgrade, you will gain access to your new benefits immediately! You will be charged for ULTRA at the same time that you pro-rated refund for your old subscription will trigger.


What if I get billed through the app store?

If you get billed through the app store, the user flow remains the same. You will receive a refund for the remainder of your current subscription, and the ULTRA Tier price point will be charged at the start of your subscription renewal date.


What happens to my current subscription if I cancel to upgrade?

Don’t cancel your subscription! Once you are logged into DC Universe Infinite, you can navigate to MyDC > Settings and click on ‘Subscription’. From here, select the ULTRA plan and complete the required information to upgrade to this tier. Additionally, you can click/tap on any comic book with the ‘ULTRA’ badge to be taken through the upgrade flow (these comic books will appear throughout the app). Once you are in the comic book detail screen, click on 'Read Now with ULTRA’. You will be charged for ULTRA at the same time that you pro-rated refund for your old subscription will trigger.

Would be great if you let us know what email address to expect the email from, so it doesn’t get lost in junk/spam.

Thank you for this great update.

I signed up for Ultra by changing my subscription plan. In my settings, it says that I now have Ultra as my current plan. However, I have not gotten a confirmation email, nor can I see any new Ultra comics on my tablet (which I have already upgraded to Ultra. Is there any assistance you can provide to straighten this out?

Thanks!

So I upgraded to ultra but it said I won’t be charged for it until my subscription renews in December will I still keep the $99 promotion price even though it won’t renew until the promotion is over ?

Yes. You will just be getting the first months cheaper.

I went to my account info to upgrade and I don’t see anything about Ultra.

Can you tell me what device/OS you’re using? You will keep the promotional price, but it should have charged you immediately. Any additional info would be helpful!

6 Likes

If you subscribe via Google Play or the App Store, you have to manage your subscription from within the DCUI app on your mobile device instead of through the website. Let me know if you need more assistance!

will the new issues that are only available to ultra populate in a list anywhere on the app, or do they have to be searched out? also will the whats new this week for ultra members now include issues from the reduced 1 month window?

What is the list of Vertigo books being added to ultra? These books would be the only reason I would upgrade my subscription. I looked thru the list above & there doesn’t seem to be much, especially older stuff. I barely see any Sandman Universe related titles, or ones like Shade the changing man or other early titles.

3 Likes

I did it. Many thanks!

Glad they’re finally doing the thing that makes sense, but I wish they’d grandfather in the annual users. I’ve had the app since before launch and I don’t super love the idea that my subscription fee will increase by $50 if I want to read the books in the ultra tier.
