Acorn tv outage
Acorn tv keeps kicking me back to Roku homepage. When attempting to go back to the app, I need to sign in, and an error message says my email and password are incorrect. Called acorn and they said they’re having an outage. I tried getting back in, and finally I was successful. Who knows how long it will last.

Norma      59 days ago  # + 1 -
What is going on Acorn? If I get logged in, it will kick me out to login again. All of my watchlist is gone. This is on all devices

I can't log on at all. Just sits on the log in page and does do anything...

Jill      59 days ago  # + 1 -
When I opened the app it made me login again even though I was logged in earlier. Gives me multiple different error messages from "no internet" to login info incorrect.

Acorn froze about 30 minutes ago. Now "error message" when I attempt to log in...either on the TV streaming, or the website.

We keep getting an error message on whatever tab we attempt to use; it says we need to sign up for a membership when we already have one.

Can't Access Acorn - Error Message 2019-403000-000
Can't access Acorn TV on Samsung Smart TV. Get errir message "Access to this resource is forbidden by access policy. 2019-403000-000 and I have sent help tickets and called and no one does anything. I was able to watch it two days ago - but it kept booting me off and I had to try several times to watch an episode, starting it over and over. What is going on?

Guest      87 days ago  # + 0 -

acorn tv is not is degrading. will soon not function at all.

Gordon L      88 days ago  # + 5 -
The app is acting differently than it used to. I now cannot erase searches. I cannot access Murdoch which I have successfully watched for months. Auto play does not work on all programs.
This is on Apple TV. I have deleted the Acorn app and reinstalled, reset Apple TV. Still having problems.

Billie      92 days ago  # + 2 -
Same issues everyone else is having below. Getting worse, not better. Becoming increasingly glitchy over past couple years. Seems to be a server issue for the app itself bc not having probs with other apps. Trying to watch the long-awaited Doc Martin 10th season and 10 secs into the opening them-booted back to Roku menu.

Some shows that played last week will not play now. Murdoch Mysteries, Wild at Heart, etc.

From last night and still going I can not play or sign in on any format even though I am paid up and active through Google account. I can sign into the web but then the same thing happens.. press play episode and the red rotating circle starts and locks out screen and nothing works until I press return. All my other apps play fine.

Earlier error message on Roku: 2231-000000-000
Current error on PC: Waiting for
Current error on Roku: From Roku menu, I click Acorn. In Acorn, I click on an episode and it kicks me back out to the Roku menu.

I keep getting this error:
"error establishing a database connection"
Restarting the computer does not fix it.

Similar to previous comment "resume" is meaningless. Tonight between episodes I was kicked off and can't get back to Acorn on Roku when other services are working. I also got logges off and can't login again. Happy Friday nite!

Guest      119 days ago  # + 0 -

Resume doesnt work. Starts over at the beginning. Fast forward is glacial. Basically useless unless you finish every episode.

Becky      133 days ago  # + 0 -
Acorn does not remember where I left off on a show, so I have to fast forward to the spot where I left off. This has been an ongoing issue for a long time. None of the other streaming services have this problem

Lisa      137 days ago  # + 0 -
Every five seconds, it starts caching...the video srtarts blur, and clear, and caching...can't bear it. The trouble shooting in the website blames the internet/WiFi/interfering by other devices...but at the same time, I never have this type of problem from NETFLIX, amazon PRIME, Disney+, ACORN is just rubbish. Pity it holdss POIROT and other English TV which I like.

BG      140 days ago  # + 0 -
App does not keep track of track of where I was when I have to stop a program.. I have to fast forward To where I was.

Also, I can't load many programs.It's very frustrating and I pay yearly

Glitchy, freezing up. Stopping. Kicking me out of show. This is a free trial. Not impressed. I stream everything. Never had these issues

Guest      167 days ago  # + 0 -

Shows frequently fail to stream especially Murdock
H Mysteries and 800 Words. Just platitudes from customer service no solutions. Hoping they get bought by Britbox which runs 100%
