App Reviews

  • Worst app it’s wasting for money and time

    By MeDo M.FiRe
    Advice Don’t download it cause they are charge u for nothing 😤😤👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
  • Now it works. Good start

    By Dumbhead
    It works now on all devices, finally, though I will never understand the management process that made the customer experience so bad. And I am still surprised that they did not contact users who had written or called them. Now it works, and content is good. But unlike other streaming we use, Acorn is unique in not making it easy to see where we left off in watching episodes. This is not a good way to be unique. Recent review: First Acorn removed essential functionality (tracking progress on series, for example). Then the app stops working with iPads and iPhones. Then the app stops working with Apple TV. And through it all Acorn decides not to reach out to customers to describe the situation and their progress, and not to tell customers that their remaining option is to log in on web browser. So, self-created technical problems compounded by a poor customer service decision. I think Acorn is shooting itself in the foot. I wonder what will happen to # subscribers, and how many will take this as a signal to try Britbox. An addition to my review from a week ago. At that time Acorn sent me an email telling me they had reset my password and that the app would work with the reset password. It did not. I just received the exact same message. And exactly like before, nothing changes with the reset password. This feels a bit like like the Keystone Cops.
  • Content great - app is awful!

    By jodimdl
    Until recently I would have given 5 stars, but the last couple weeks the app constantly crashes. The app just blacks out!
  • worst apple tv app

    By SF_KL
    works great with iphone app. but worst apple tv app EVER! the apple tv app keep asking for $. which I have paid for a full annual subscription. At this day and age there’s no excuse to not to get all ios app (iphone; ipad; apple tv) working together!
  • Poor quality app and substandard customer service

    By Fictreader
    One of the most user unfriendly and poorly designed apps I have seen. I had a service issue with the streaming site and was very displeased with the lack of customer service and assistance. It took multiple emails and calls initiated by me to not resolve the issue. I can’t say I would recommend the service, but the programming is top shelf.
  • Doesn’t play on Apple TV

    By Libraryfriend
    What’s the point of it if it doesn’t work? Watching on my iPad for now. But seriously. How hard is it to get an app working?
  • Missing support for TV app

    By ❤ 
    The app both on iOS and, more importantly Apple TV, does not integrate with the TV app. This means that searching for shows in the TV app doesn’t include Acorn TV in the results nor does the recently watched section show anything watched on Acorn TV. The missing search results is really bad since it means you need to search in two places if you want to see if it’s in the AcornTV app as well as I our other apps (like iTunes, Netflix, Amazon, etc.). Not much point in having the app if your global searches won’t check it. 😔
  • Abysmal Tech Support

    By KelleeKSikes
    I have had Acorn TV account since 2014. I subscribed on a whim to be able to watch full season of Miss Fischer’s Murder Mysteries (Now on Netflix). From time to time I have found other shows I like to watch. However... - Their buffering is awful on networks where Netflix, Hulu and Prime do not have issues - Many shows that are new to the app they release an episode a week, and movies and series may be on the app only for a blink of an eye with a month long teaser before they arrive - my mail box is constantly deluged with emails from Acorn on videos I can buy from them (um...I stream, I don’t buy) - Their interface is clunky and a pain to navigate, without a watch the next episode feature you are trying to remember where you left off - Their selection is small and most of it very old (I am curious to see how Brit Box compares But the Kiss of Death is the number of subscription tech issues I have had and the number of general tech issues, when the only support they provide is by email. And in most cases I have been sent a form reply that clearly shows that no one read my tech issue in the first place. Prefect example, for the last month I have not been able to watch anything on Acorn on my Apple TV, although it works fine on my iPad. Acorn says it is an issue with Apple and I need to resolve it through iTunes. Apple, after an hour on the phone with them and escalated to level 3 support says there is nothing wrong with my Acorn subscription, or the Apple TV - Apple Support is Great - but they could not resolve the problem so it is back to Acorn. Whose support takes DAYS to respond and who keeps sending me a form letter saying I need to address the issue in iTunes. This is probably tech issue 10 I have had in the last 4ish years. So... I am thinking of watching the last of Hamish McBeth and canceling my subscription before my annual renewal comes up in a few days. I just not sure the hassle is worth the limited and old show selection they have.
  • Paying for nothing

    By DragonLady4
    I’m paying a subscription fee through iTunes for Acorn, but it won’t let me log in on my iPad. The content is first rate, but the company needs to fix the app.
  • Horrible response. No connection. If

    By dd's details
    If you do get in and actually pick a show it stops about five minutes in and goes nowhere. Do not waste your time or money.
