You can now subscribe directly to the channel from within Apple’s TV app on any supported device. Recent original shows include London Kills and Queens Of Mystery. Irish broadcaster RTÉ and Acorn Media Enterprises recently co-commissioned a Victorian mystery, Dead Still.
You’ll also find Acorn TV on other streaming systems, including Amazon.
