Anybody having a problem with AcornTV?

Just now I tried to go to it on my Roku device and was asked to login. It put up my email address then it would not accept my password. After two tries, I tried to get to the https://acorn.tv/ website for Acorn TV and get "504 ERROR
The request could not be satisfied."

Any idea what's up?

Thanks, I needed a laugh - so I am watching A series of Unfortunate Events.

3. We used to have it.

When there were problems, excessive buffering or outright problems like yours, we frequently found the same shows on YouTube. Some episodes of some shows were broken up into 10 or 15 minute clips, but they were watchable. We finally dropped it after a few years.

5. I've been watching the Murdock Mysteries on Acorn TV

I just signed up for Britbox which seems to have more British shows, including some of the same British shows on Acorn TV.

Hulu only has through season 6, Netflix to season 9, iTunes and Amazon to season 10 while Acorn has up to season 11 and will have season 12 when it comes out.

With their new Roku software, it is really hard to watch a series on Acorn - the software does not keep track of the last episode watched and reverts to offering the first episode of the first season every time. So I have been watching fewer shows on Acorn TV and moving more to other streaming services

4. Just tried and I can't get onto the site online

I just finished watching season 20 of Midsomer Murders last night. So, it seems the issue is on their end.

I really want to finish watching the Murdock Mysteries.

7. This is the first time I couldn't get to the site.

Have you watched 800 Words or The Good Karma Hospital? They are both great shows.

8. Not yet - I've been so frustrated I am down to one show on Acorn TV

I just found their toll free number - 888-870-8047 - but they do not answer this time of night.

11. Mine is OK right now. But it does have a very clunky interface.

Have had it for a year and the price is right, but they don't add fresh shows often enough.

May switch to Britbox.

13. I subscribe to MHZ Choice for $7.99 per month.

It has all foreign movies & series. For fans of Spiral, which was originally shown on Netflix, Season 6 will start in Jun.

Everything is sub-titled, but the content is so compelling, you get to the point where you don't even realize you are reading. I find myself raising the volume on my tv. 😀

I enjoy the French & Nordic offerings. It's very worth it. There is 30 days free, then you may join after.
