I subscribed to Acorn through Amazon, and I access it on my iPad through my Amazon video app.

I've had Acorn TV for the past several years and I do like it very much.  I use my Roku to access that particular channel.  I would suggest you do the free trial period to see if you might like to continue.  I think that would be best since everyone likes their own types of programming.  There is another channel that just started here in the US through Roku.  BritBox.  You might want to do a free trial to see which one of the two you might like.  Acorn TV is cheaper on a yearly basis than, I believe, BritBox is.  I see BritBox took a couple of old Acorn TV programs and put them on their channel.  Hope this helps.

@I also have Amazon Prime and signed up for Acorn through amazon ~ it's $4.99 @ month, but I've been thinking of changing to subscribe through Acorn itself, since they offer a discount if you pay a yearly rate. 

 

I access Acorn through Amazon on my Roku or my Amazon Firestick. 

 

If I change "providers" though, I'm going to have to compile a list of the shows that I'm currently watching so I can add them on Acorn. 

 

does this make more sense now, @Mom in NY? / or have I confused you more?
