It has taken awhile to fix some of the glitches in this app. If you have troubles chromcasting then I suggest you try EZ Web video Cast l Chromcast by Hecorat to see if it works better. Just put in the acron .TV URL and cast show to your device. The Acorn. Cast app will not always properly.
While the app works on iOS and Amazon FireTV perfectly it won't work on AndroidTV (Nvidia Shield) because it gives an error that it needs a gamepad! The Shield has a game controller and a remote so having this in the code as required and preventing the app from loading is stupid. So this android version gets 1 star because of not working on all android devices even though it says it does. Please UPDATE it to FIX this!
Great shows not so great app. Every other app I use (cut the cable cord 2 years ago) remembers where you left off and has a choice to go right to the next episode. This is the most user UNfriendly app I have used.
Works ok on my tablet, but doesn't work ok when I use the cast screen feature. Everything looks ok on the tv until I try to view a trailer or a show. The sound is there, but no picture (only on my tablet). It's definitely an app issue because I can view if I use cast screen after logging into Acorn through the Chrome browser (picture isn't good, buffering, etc). When I contacted Acorn support with detailed explanation, they said it was a Chrome Cast issue. Nothing to do with Chrome Cast! So, value of this app? Absolutely USELESS if you can't use it to view!!!
Works ok on AppleTV but it does not remember its place in a show if you quit it in the middle and come back later; As for the Android version it puts up an error on a brand new Sony XBR A1E 55" OLED Bravia AndroidTV that says gamepad required and its nonfunctional
Realm I've got it the app downloaded I got to watch a movie off and on off and on off and on off and on 8 seconds in your watch it eight seconds it comes off and then eight seconds later it comes back on what the hell Netflix doesn't do that why do you I'm paying for something I have to sit there and watch for eight seconds and watch it come back on and off and on I don't think so
