  • Great app, love British television.

    By MusiqMysfit
    Im not sure why it had all these bad reviews. I’ve had no problems with the app at all and it is easy to navigate. I’m happy I can finally watch my British shows that aren’t on Netflix or Hulu!
  • Their app, product team, and support team: ALL GARBAGE!!!

    By Mundaful
    I have been paying for a subscription since December 2018. I subscribe through my AppleTV and they pay Acorn TV every month on time. Yet I can no longer access the service for months now, and the Acorn TV help site says to click the “restore from iTunes purchase” option on the apps homepage. Completely normal, all apps that I subscribe to through iTunes conveniently have this option, it makes sense to have this option. The problem is, IT DOESN’T EXIST ON THE HOMEPAGE OF THE APP. This is such a ridiculous oversight by their team. Suggestion: get a product team who knows what the hell they’re doing and ensure the development team understands that it’s a huge effing problem when your own support pages don’t match the reality of your app. Completely ridiculous. I feel sorry for the devs who have to work on this app... they get blamed for all of the problems that are absolutely things other departments should be owning to make sure the customer experience is a great one. Add to that, not a single one of my emails to their support department (7) were answered. Such a monumental disappointment that despite loving the Acorn TV programming, I will be canceling my subscription and demanding a refund for the last five months.
  • Great new & old shows

    By JJCourt
    I have enjoyed watching the old British shows like Time Team but the new Acorn shows are really good too! I have Acorn on my iMac, iPhone & iPad. I don’t leave home without it!
  • Love this Channel

    By kellelist
    Love the shows! Just found out that two of my friends also watch only Acorn. Barely watch Netflix dark same with Prime.
  • Terrible, awful, very bad

    By OliviaCruse
    Don’t even try! This is one of the worst apps I have ever tried to use. We stream via Chromecast, and I have had no trouble with other apps. However, most of the time the app won’t work at all with Chromecast. I have to go through a long and annoying resetting sequence with my phone, the TV, and the Chromecast device and even then the app resets only occasionally. When it works, it locks up about half of the time and I have no access to controls like pause or rewind. I was spending up to a half hour just to get a program started. I contacted customer service and was told to access the program through Google Home, but Google Home showed had no indication I was watching anything in Acorn. After many frustrating hours I gave up and stream from the Acorn website. No problems with that process, so far.
  • Not ready for iPhone X / Xs / Xs Max

    By Mark Bober
    The home indicator stays on while watching video. This makes it almost unusable. Please fix ASAP!
  • Not bad but not great either.

    By Bad Dad 7064
    The app works great on my iPad. My issue is with the limited choices of shows to choose from. It would also be nice to have an app that is compatible with my Samsung television and or Xbox; as I stream everything through the Xbox.
  • BBC acorn

    By seromermebsheila
    I find the app easy to use. But I’m not happy that it keeps telling me “this video is not available outside the USA. I’m in Texas and the last time I checked we’re in the USA!i pay for it but can’t watch it.
  • Terrible

    By AA Manhattan
    With the big players out there, this service trying to computer with a cheap price, unfortunately it is a terrible one, the app is unusable on almost every device, accessibility is even worse, I can’t imagine how this streaming service will survive , no thank you they are a good example that sometimes a small Componey is just small everything else.
  • Worst customer service ever

    By Sherry H
    Forgot my password. Have now spent two days requesting the link to reset my password....NOTHING. When I submit a trouble ticket, I get a computer generated response that my request has been received but not a follow up addressing the problem.
