Acorn TV has been busy this past year with a number of strong entries to the entertainment buffet that is the current state of TV. The streaming service is submitting three sole commissions in multiple categories for the 2019 Primetime Emmys (Agatha Raisin for TV Movie, London Kills for Limited Series and Queens of Mystery for Drama Series) as well as iconic actress Hayley Mills for upcoming family drama Pitching In.
The service is racking it up with Line Of Duty, which has proven to be a buzzy show for the Brittish Isles centric service. Among its boasts
- The new season is the highest-rated UK show of 2019 with 11 million viewers (a huge number in the UK)
- LINE OF DUTY has an overall Rotten Tomatoes score of a stellar 98%6) Stellar season-long guest stars The Walking Dead’s Lennie James in Season 1, Bodyguard’s Keeley Hawes in Season 2 and Westworld’s Emmy winner Thandie Newton in Season 4
- Ratings increase every season with the new season being the highest yet
Acorn TV is a relatively cheap option for those looking to get into TV from overseas $5.99 per month and has been expanding to more countries over the past year. This is an important move for any service as terrestrial audiences will eventually top out.
