Acorn TV dropped roughly 10% of their total titles back in December (33 expired), but January was a little kinder, with just 4 shows leaving the platform. February falls somewhere in between, with a total of 10 titles leaving the service. Below, we'll give you descriptions and alternate viewing ideas where possible.
Sadly, it costs money to make shows available on streaming services, so that means old shows need to leave to make room for new ones. While most of us don't even notice the departures since they're usually older shows, it's always a good idea to check the list to make sure you won't miss anything you've been meaning to watch.
