It was announced earlier this week that Acorn TV has made its set-top box debut. Acorn TV is the largest North American subscription video on demand service that specializes in British and international TV. So it's now available on Xfinity On Demand to Xfinity TV customers nationwide.

The launch of the SVOD service marks the first time Acorn TV (owned by RLJ Entertainment) is available on an MVPD set-top box. 

 Acorn TV is accessible in the home on Xfinity on Demand and on the go via the Xfinity Stream App and portal. Xfinity TV customers with an X1 Voice Remote can say “Acorn TV” to begin watching today or use their remote to navigate to the service within the Xfinity on Demand menu. Xfinity TV customers can add Acorn TV to their service for $4.99 per month.

Mike Pears, President of U.S. Distribution for RLJ Entertainment said this about the news:
Acorn TV is excited to continue to expand our distribution through a partnership with Comcast and to offer Xfinity TV customers the very best in British and other English-language drama, comedy, mystery and more from across the globe.
The Emmy®-nominated Acorn TV adds exclusive new programs weekly and features a deep library of recurring mysteries, dramas, and comedies previously unavailable to U.S. audiences presented commercial free.
