ACORN TV – a NEW way to watch British TV!

As I have hinted at here and there over the last few months, the Acorn team has been working for the last year on an exciting new project that launched today. Acorn TV is our new streaming service that makes our many award-winning British mysteries and dramas available online to American audiences. This is an expansion of the Screening Room that I’m sure many of you have seen on our website over the last year. As we did in that Screening Room, we’ll continue to offer some free episodes for all registered users, but now we’re also offering an expanded option that allows Acorn Premium subscribers to watch full series of our shows. Here’s the scoop –

Acorn TV offers full seasons of six different series with the first episode of each season featured online for free. For only $24.99 a year, Acorn Premium subscribers get unlimited access to all of the episodes in each selected season. In addition, Premium members receive free shipping on all orders from Acorn’s distinctive merchandise catalog and website.

Programming for Acorn TV is refreshed weekly, with each season available for six weeks. There are six seasons and more than 40 hours of programming offered at any given time. Each week one season will be added and the oldest season will be removed. Acorn TV is accessible at launch on computers, iPhones, iPads, and any portable device with a browser that runs Flash 9 or higher, and Google TV. Additional devices and applications will follow over the next 12 months.

A FREE TRIAL of Acorn TV is being offered to viewers through August 31 at and the shows being featured this month include Upstairs Downstairs, Brideshead Revisited, The Far Pavilions, Foyle’s War, Agatha Christie’s Poirot, and The Forsyte Saga. Please check it out and let us know what you think!

Jen is the Senior Marketing Director for Acorn. When she’s not working or raising her two young cats (Donny and Marie), she can most likely be found playing Words With Friends or reading her Kindle.
