We don't always get a lot of notice about shows leaving streaming services (even THEY don't always know too far ahead), but we just saw that another handful of shows are leaving in late January, so we wanted to spread the word.

Below, we take a look at what's leaving Acorn TV in January 2022. Hopefully, these losses will open up room for loads of great new content to arrive on the service in the next month or two. In many places, we've offered alternative viewing options or suggestions for similar programming in case you miss the show in question.  

Prefer to focus on what's new and coming soon? Here's the January 2022 premiere list for Acorn TV, and here's a look at 5 brand new Acorn TV Original shows coming out later in 2022

Hidden Britain by Drone

Hidden Britain by Drone, S1 – Sir Tony Robinson (Time Team, Blackadder) hosts this intriguing series that uses drone technology to look at normally off-limits parts of Great Britain. While it might sound a bit boring to watch everything from above, it's not like that at all. Part of the footage is taken from above, by drone, but other parts feature Robinson himself guiding the viewer or interviewing experts. Locations include everything from billionaire underground wine vaults to WWII shipwrecks and abandoned homes in Scotland's Hebrides Islands.
