As the weather starts to cool in many parts of the country (and as wildfire season continues in the west), indoor TV time becomes all the more important. The good news is that Acorn TV has a solid lineup of programming as we move into September – so there should be no shortage of good things to watch.
If you don't currently have an Acorn TV subscription, you can sign up on their website HERE. If you have a smart TV that isn't compatible with their own app (like a Samsung) or if you prefer to subscribe through Amazon's Prime Video service, you can sign up HERE instead.
Either way, you get a free 7-day trial, and both offer easy online cancellation if you decide it's not for you. Both options have the same programming, though some people on slower internet connections have reported slightly smoother streaming on Amazon (and occasionally, a delay of a few hours for new programming to appear).
