Every month, streaming services like Acorn TV have to get rid of some shows to be able to continue adding new ones. It costs money to get streaming rights, so to avoid prohibitively expensive subscription fees, it's a necessary evil.

For most of 2024, the losses at Acorn TV have been pretty minimal – just a couple older shows in most months. In June 2024, however, 11 shows will be leaving that platform. The full list is below, and we've provided descriptions, photos, and alternate viewing options where possible.
