Worst App Ever

therearenonicknamesleft99

I’ve been using various computer apps for some 35 years, and the Acorn TV app for the Apple TV is the worst app I’ve ever had to use.
To begin, the menu system is completely illogical and user hostile. Unlike, Netflix, with the Acorn app for Apple TV once you have selected the program you want (not always easy with the execrable new Apple TV remote), you then get to try and figure out which episode is next in the queue because Acorn doesn’t bother to queue up the next one. You still have to figure out which one it is, with no clues whatsoever.
Just finding the program itself is sometimes a challenge. If you go to the recently watched list, and click on the program you want, rather than bringing up the overview screen for the program (from which you can at least begin your search for the next episode to watch), it just starts the episode you’ve already watched. And if you hit the go-back button, it just bumps you back out to the home screen rather than the more logical overview screen for that program.
To top off the fun, it will, as often as not, simply refuse to play a program no matter how many times you hit enter on the pad portion of the remote. I end up AirPlaying it from my iPad.
The Acorn App for the Apple TV is completely broken. Which is a shame because the app for the iPad and iPhone — a completely different app — is quite good, And the programming is brilliant. If you can get it to play. Shameful!

OK improvement

Update: Crashing every time launched under iOS 11.3. Apple TV version frequently fails to connect, requiring log out and back in, restarting the Apple TV, or both. Nothing but canned, usually inapplicable replies from tech support and no updates. If Acorn wasn’t the only place some of this content was available, I’d have cancelled my subscription by now. Avoid this service if you can find the content you want anywhere else.

————-

So far it looks good, though there were several aspects of the previous version, including the ability to select a search and see just the episodes in that season rather than the new version which has all the seasons and episodes in a single list with no ability to just view a single season’s episodes. Time will tell whether this version is stable in it’s current release and whether it’s more reliable with AirPlay then the previous releases tended to be. I’m also very hopeful of an app for the 4th-generation Apple TV so that I don’t have to stream from my iPad.

Great Content - App Needs Work - Poor customer support

Sidney Williams

I love Acorn’s content. They have great British mysteries and comedy, and you’ll get some selections before Netflix and discover some things you didn’t know you wanted.

Unfortunately the Apple TV app has issues, and because my account was through iTunes, I spent several days being told I didn’t have account. Really, Acorn, would I have bothered if I didn’t?

One issue resolved on its own, possibly because I was in limbo between billing cycles. Finally got some acknowledgement and one offer for a fix by cancelling via iTunes and subscribing through Acorn directly. Had to go through several rounds of emails to get clearly a known issue acknowledged.

Apple TV app won’t save your spot if you leave and return to a movie or show. Took several days to get support to say that service was not available on Apple TV. It is on the iPad app version, to be fair.

Really some basic and up-front practices in support would go a long way. Smoke and mirrors is a TERRIBLE way to treat “valued customers.” Also getting a new rep with each email wastes customer time, and the Apple TV app sends you to website for support, which seems to confuse support staff who can’t differentiate between billing and technical issues. Also telling me I could use Acorn on another device when I contact about Apple IS NOT HELPFUL.
