App Reviews

  • Love Acorn but hate it too

    By CJmcmcsm
    I love the shows on Acorn but they have a major problem in that if you sign out of Acorn and try signing in again, it never seems to remember your password. It takes them a long time to resolve any problems also. If I didn’t love the shows so much I would deep six this app.
  • I love AcornTV

    By Missusjoy
    There have been a few glitches here and there but that’s with most every app on Apple. I watch AcornTV more than Netflix and Amazon Prime. The app is easy to use. The selection is awesome. It’s easy to use. And it is works well across platforms.
  • Not worth it

    By Oakwater baby
    If you are running the latest software update, forget it. This app will not let you in. If you try logging into your existing account it will keep telling you that your email or password are incorrect. Trying to reset your password? Good luck with that too. That option will not let you complete either. Acorn will however let you into your account if you do it via their website, thereby bypassing the app. This app needs a major overhaul and total revamp since the last system update. Last year I opted for the annual subscription, but I think I will cancel and maybe revert to the monthly option, or maybe not! UPDATE: It’s working again at last. I get royally brassed off with apps that do this, which is a shame really because I love the fabulous content. So for the content, I would amend the rating to 3*.
  • useless app

    By Coachjkr
    Never resumes programming. gotta remember where you left off. Hah. don't bother with customer service. it's none existent. too bad. programs are great. hard to understand how they've let these issues go on for YEARS.
  • App is GREAT

    By Cindykt720
    So the one thing I have an issue with is I purchased it and I use it with screen share on my AppleTV but it doesn’t come across on that I purchased it.... so I can only watch it off my phone but I don’t have any issues at all everything is great And Loch and a lot of the programs are amazing. Airplay on my Apple TV is excellent Striking Out!! ♥️ Agatha Raisin is hilarious East of Everything is really fascinating and he’s hot! about Australia Loch Ness. 👍🏻 Acceptable Risk was awesome crime drama I’m on series 3 of Doctor Findlay It’s good. To slow for some possibly but very heart and medical developments after the war. Like it now xo Wow I look at that I’ve been watching a lot of TV LOL
  • Still having issues with appletv

    By Beckleecottage
    I have unsubscribed several times due to issues with streaming on my apple products. So I relented and subscribed again and same problems I paid for renewal but can't get app to recognize my Apple ID sign on. I love the programming but never have this problem with brittv
  • iPhone version will not connect to Chromecast

    By astrosco
    While my wife’s Android version of the app will happily connect to our Chromecast, my iOS version doesn’t even appear to have the option. What the heck? Please add this feature!
  • Sometimes works sometimes doesn't

    By rthomasl
    The content is excellent when the app works. Right now when I finish an episode of a show and stop casting using Chromecast the screen on my iPhone or iPad goes black and I either have to delete and reload the app or turn off and turn back on the device. The app used to work correctly. So what changed?
  • Hope this gets better, but so far, waste of money.

    By gmeauclaire
    I subscribed through the App Store on Apple TV and —ALL OF A SUDDEN— Acorn required me to sign in directly within their app. No place on the home screen or in settings to restore my App Store purchase/subscription. Lost $14 dollars. Hopefully they’ll get this fixed. Took me a while to sort it. CANCELLED! Anyway, they have cool shows and hopefully they’ll make it better before 2018 is put to bed. When the app allowed me to log in, it was good enough to watch. Best of luck Acorn! Hope you sort it out.
  • Good shows, bad app

    By Kayak patty
    Original review 2 stars — The shows are very good but the interface is not. The most aggravating thing happens when I fast forward - the close captions get out of sync!! It’s horrible. If I don’t finish watching a show or movie and come back to it later I usually have to fast forward to the place where I left off. When I do that the captions are so off that I can’t watch. This happens when I’m casting to the tv. Not directly on the iPad. Also, when I finish watching something and try to go back to the main screen, the app just goes black. Can’t do anything. I then have to do a hard close and reopen it. All in all the app is pretty aggravating. Once I finish a few series I’ll probably cancel and just stick with BritBox and Netflix. UPDATE 8-29-2019: I don’t know what they did but lately I find the app works fine. I’m actually quite pleased with it now And I have updated my rating accordingly. Thanks.
