Acorn TV, which specialises in British television, comes with a 7-day free trial. That means you have an entire week to explore the library, assess the streaming experience and figure out if the service would make a nice addition to your entertainment roster. However right now new customers can get an extra long look at Acorn TV, by using the code ACORNTVAU30 for a month long free trial. Here's everything you need to know before signing up.
How do I sign up for the Acorn TV free trial?
To get the Acorn TV free trial, head to the streaming platform's official website. In the top right corner of the screen you'll see the big Start Free Trial button. Click on it, then follow the on-screen instructions to get access to the service.
You are required to enter your personal and payment information. If you have a voucher or gift code for Acorn TV, you can enter that here as well. Don't worry, the service won't charge your card until the free trial period in up.
Is there a catch?
Not really. You get to use the service free for seven days, no strings attached. However, if you don't cancel before the trial is up, your card will be charged. We recommend setting a calendar reminder or alarm 24 hours before the free trial ends. That way, you have time to cancel if you're not enjoying the service.
You might also want to consider data usage. Binge-watching tons of shows takes a toll on your data consumption. If you're on an unlimited broadband plan that won't be an issue. However, Acorn TV doesn't let you download shows for offline viewing, so streaming on your phone while using mobile data will burn through your allowance quickly.
What does the Acorn free trial get me?
Once you sign up for the Acorn TV free trial you'll have access to the platform's entire library of content. That includes binge-worthy British shows, but also international series from Canada, Australia and more. We have a list of the best shows on Acorn TV to help you get started.
The service is compatible with a variety of devices, so you can watch on screens big or small. The list includes PCs/Macs, Android and iOS phones and tablets, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV and Chromecast. Check out our step-by-step guide for setting up Acorn TV.
How much does a subscription to Acorn TV cost?
If you're set on keeping the service after your free trial expires, a monthly subscription to Acorn TV costs $6.99 per month per month. You can save cash by purchasing a membership that will last you an entire year, priced at $69.
