Every month, Acorn TV brings us a new set of shows “from Britain and beyond”. Unfortunately, the addition of new shows means that some of the old ones must go. In most cases, you won't even notice the shows that leave – but if you miss something that's been sitting on your watch list, you might end up disappointed.
Most of the shows leaving in July are either older shows or documentary/lifestyle programming, so they probably won't be missed by too many – but we like to make everyone aware just in case they've been holding off on something.
Below, we take a look at which shows are leaving Acorn TV in July 2022. We've also gone through and added in alternative streaming options (as available) and suggestions for similar programming.
Prefer to focus on what's new and coming soon? Here's the July 2022 premiere list for Acorn TV.
