Little Acorn

The BBC's tv partner in America, AMC, has just struck a deal to invest in RLJ, which in turn brings viewers the BET (Black Entertainment Television) channel and Acorn TV, a video-on-demand subscription service.

The announcement proclaims Acorn TV as "the premier SVOD destination for world-class British television, with more than 370,000 paying monthly subscribers (which has grown by 92 percent since December 31, 2015) and a deep library that includes thousands of hours of programming, including exclusive, award-winning content. "

And indeed, Acorn's catalogue boasts many BBC programmes - George Gently, Hinterland, Lovejoy, Partners In Crime, Jamaica Inn, (old) Poldark, Miranda, QI, as well as perhaps more stuff you'd recognise from ITV.

Boats ? Missed ?
