Acorn TV Australia: Price, features and content

Australians can binge-watch some classic British shows with Acorn TV.

Acorn TV

Acorn TV is the streaming home for British television from the folks at AMC Networks, who also own Shudder and Sundance Now. Acorn TV offers a wide selection of TV shows from the United Kingdom and beyond at an affordable monthly price. With new episodes added every month and some quality originals being created for the service, it's not a bad deal for fans of British telly.

What is Acorn TV?

Acorn TV is a subscription video-on-demand service with a strong focus on British television shows. Users pay a monthly or yearly fee to access a growing library of television shows in Acorn's library. The platform primarily offers TV series from the United Kingdom, but there are also some classic Aussie shows, like Jack Irish, available to stream.

Acorn first started distributing British television in the United States in 1994; first on VHS, then DVD and Blu-ray. It eventually launched a streaming platform and quickly became a service focused on offering British dramas, comedies, mysteries and documentaries, all ad-free.

It's similar to BritBox, but with not as many new titles.

Stream British TV including Line of Duty, Luther and Poldark. Monthly or annual subscriptions available.

How much does Acorn TV cost?

Due partly to its niche selection of television shows and a comparatively small library, Acorn TV comes at a fairly generous $6.99 per month. Better yet, you can knock 2 months off the price if you subscribe to a full year of Acorn TV, paying $69 for a 12-month subscription. That's a good deal for anyone still paying for Foxtel to access UKTV.

There's also a one-week free trial if you're curious to check out what's on offer.
