Acorn Media Group has launched Acorn TV, a streaming service that makes British shows like Upstairs Downstairs, Brideshead Revisited, and Agatha Christie’s Poirot available for viewing online. A free trial of Acorn TV is being offered to viewers through Aug. 31 at acornonline.com/TV, which currently features a full season of six different series with the first episode of each season available for free. (For $24.99 a year, Acorn Premium subscribers get unlimited access to all of the episodes.)
Programming for Acorn TV will be refreshed weekly, with each season available for six weeks. There are six seasons and more than 40 hours of programming offered at any given time. Each week one season will be added and the oldest season will be removed.
