  • Worst customer service ever.

    By Mercuria09
    It simply does not work with Apple devices! Not as advertised! First I could not log in on my Apple TV, it would just loop back to home and not stream any program. Temporarily addressed by mirroring via my iPhone. Alas, this is no longer possible on either my iPhone or iPad, I get a message that I do not have an active account, which is not at all accurate. Update: customer service is not very responsive either. I really enjoy the programs but what’s the point of the App if I can’t watch them? Update: Finally heard back from customer service. They told me to take it up with Apple, as though Apple is responsible for their terrible App developing.
  • Great content, horrendous app

    I can’t take the frustration. I will re-up when they improve user interface and friendliness.
  • We love it

    Works great from iPhone or iPad. True it takes some adapting. But worth the bother for us. Off and going now.
  • Doesn’t work

    By Lexiblue
    I love Acorn TV. However this app does not work well. Even though it let me sign in (it even shows what show I watched last), every time I try to watch something it tells me that I don’t have a subscription. When clearly, I do.
  • Makes it impossible to cancel - some racket

  • Horrible app, useless tech support

    By Berkeley Bob
    I wasted several hours trying to sign in and view content after buying a one year subscription for $69.99. Their tech support was worse than useless. Fortunately Apple gave a full refund.
  • Needs work

    I’ve got the app on my iPhone and ROKU. The ROKU app will not let me access my content directly. I have to use browse to get to the shows I want. The Iphone app doesn’t keep track of the last episode I watched. It reverts to the last one I watched on the ROKU so I’m constantly having to browse through and find the episode I left off on and access it that way. It’s quite annoying. But I love the shows so it’s something I’m willing to put up with. But really Acorn fix this issue!
  • Season 3

    Watching Nothing Trivial and the last 8 episodes including final show all seemto be playing the same old episode. Can you fix. Thank you. Now unable to watch any shows please fix.
  • Buggy on iPad

    By Hirschid
    Love the programming but app does not remember which videos you've watched. Recently viewed stopped working. If you leave a video before finishing app does not remember where you left off. Sometimes stalls with the obscure message "resource not available" (quite by accident I discovered if you swipe down in the episode list the list will refresh and the episode will play then).
  • Don’t recommend

    By Maziemaze
    I have paid fir and am not able to watch. After many attempts to get my account activated acorn continues to say my account has expired, try to subscribe says my account is active until March 17. I have spent days trying to solve this and only get the same remedies to try, retry, retry. Totally done paying for a subscription I can not use.
