September 19, 2019

AMC Networks’ Acorn TV, the North American streaming service for British and international television, is now serving more than one million subscribers in the US and Canada.

Since its launch in 2011, Acorn TV has specialised in original and exclusive mysteries, dramas, and comedies from across the globe including Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Canada, and other European countries.

Miguel Penella, President, Global Direct-to-Consumer, AMC Networks, said:“Since its launch, Acorn TV has led the way for streamers focused on a specialized audience. Surpassing one million subscribers in the US and Canada is a major milestone which underscores that subscribers love the trusted Acorn TV experience filled with highly entertaining and captivating original and exclusive entertainment. Acorn TV’s strong momentum, coupled with the growth of our other targeted SVoD services – Shudder, Sundance Now, and UMC – further underscores that the special interest SVoD market is growing and has vast potential, including some meaningful advantages over general interest SVoD. AMC Networks is just beginning to tap the potential universe for these services.”
