App Reviews

  • Great Content - App Needs Work - Poor customer support

    By Sidney Williams
    I love Acorn’s content. They have great British mysteries and comedy, and you’ll get some selections before Netflix and discover some things you didn’t know you wanted. Unfortunately the Apple TV app has issues, and because my account was through iTunes, I spent several days being told I didn’t have account. Really, Acorn, would I have bothered if I didn’t? One issue resolved on its own, possibly because I was in limbo between billing cycles. Finally got some acknowledgement and one offer for a fix by cancelling via iTunes and subscribing through Acorn directly. Had to go through several rounds of emails to get clearly a known issue acknowledged. Apple TV app won’t save your spot if you leave and return to a movie or show. Took several days to get support to say that service was not available on Apple TV. It is on the iPad app version, to be fair. Really some basic and up-front practices in support would go a long way. Smoke and mirrors is a TERRIBLE way to treat “valued customers.” Also getting a new rep with each email wastes customer time, and the Apple TV app sends you to website for support, which seems to confuse support staff who can’t differentiate between billing and technical issues. Also telling me I could use Acorn on another device when I contact about Apple IS NOT HELPFUL.

    App for iPad doesn’t work. Paid for a full year in advance and can’t watch a thing. Total ripoff. Please don’t waste your money.
  • Please FIX

    By Clemfam
    Great content, very undependable app performance. Info says last update was 3 mos ago! Why?! Reviews show that many users are having the same trouble. When the apps—Apple TV or iOS—work, all is good. But we can’t count on them working. Please, please fix once and for all.
  • Excellent programs... WHEN THE APP WORKS!

    By Mr.lasouris
    I had subscribed to Acorn TV on a dvd device (non-Apple)prior to owning Apple TV & I never had any problems using the app/watching programs. Fast forward one+ years & its crap shoot if the app works or not! I delete & reinstall but am constantly plagued with error messages (“An error occurred loading...”). However if I use the app from my iPad & screen mirror it onto Apple TV no problems. It’s all too frustrating! Hope you have better luck. 🤬
  • Terrible glitches

    By Novelstoo
    I love so many of the shows but on my iPad there are so many issues. The worst is the Resource Not Available message. It is so annoying not to be able to continue watching a series. After I watch an episode and am ready for the next episode it flips me back several episodes sometimes even an earlier season. It sometimes will not save your place within an episode. It really is aggravating. I quit Brit Box because of their terrible buffering issue now Acorn is just as bad. I am about to give up on it completely and cancel my subscription.
  • Problems all the time

    I love watching Acorn TV—but continually have problems with it. I subscribe via iTunes—but won’t recognize my subscription so much of the time—and, yes, I have double checked my subscription—this has been going on for some time—pls fix it!

    Acorn just plain doesn’t work - at least on Apple devices. Tried on Apple TV, iPhone and iPad. It kept asking me to subscribe, and when I did it said I was already subscribed. But would never play a show! I guess I know why it’s called Acorn - they’ve got a bunch of squirrels as software developers!

    Acorn was working fine with the most recent Apple update Disaster! Sign In is Looping and then it added a Free Trial (which I can’t use) in addition to our membership which was charged this month. The last update has been a nightmare!
  • So long, Acorn!

    By Bravelass
    Tried to renew again tonight. And AGAIN the app doesn't recognize my iTunes subscription. Pitiful. If this isn't resolved tomorrow, I won't ever renew my subscription. It'll be BritBox instead. **No response to customer service contact. Last time I'll try Acorn. The new version of the app is simply awful. You can't tell which episode you just watched. You can't even tell if you've watched any of them. Every time you start a new episode, it asks if you wan to resume or start from the beginning. Then, when the episode ends, it just sits there, doesn't return to the episode listing or continue or to the next episode. It just sits there with a dark screen using up battery doing nothing. Most frustrating if all, when watching on my phone, I have to turn the ringer on to get sound. Every other app on my phone that uses sounds plays with the ringer off, but no, Acorn has to be different b
