The drama orientated subscription video-on-demand service, which is still relatively new in the UK, has become more widely available.
Acorn TV’s arrival on Amazon Prime Video Channels and Apple TV channels means users of both services can now add the service as an optional extra.
Acorn TV, which launched just over a month ago, specialises in UK and international drama, including original dramas such as the Emmy-nominated mystery series Queens of Mystery and hit French crime drama Balthazar alongside British classics including Foyle’s War and Inspector George Gently; contemporary Agatha Christie BBC adaptations of And Then There Were None, Partners in Crime, and The Witness for the Prosecution.
Acorn TV is also available on Roku, Fire TV, Android, Apple Mobile and Apple TV (as an app outside of the Channels service). Following a free trial period, Acorn TV costs £4.99 a month.
Stuart Shaw, Managing Director, Acorn Media International said:
Since launching just a month ago, Acorn TV in the UK has exceeded our expectations and we’re thrilled by the social media engagement of our new subscribers and viewership, particularly for our Acorn TV original series Queens of Mystery. We want to ensure that Acorn TV is available on as many platforms/devices as possible, so we’re excited to quickly add Amazon Prime Video Channels and Apple TV Channels to our subscriber options.
