November starts tomorrow, and that means we have a whole new month of Acorn TV premieres to look forward to – including the return of Acorn TV Original mystery Whitstable Pearl (based on Julie Wassmer's cozy mystery book series).
If you don't already have access to Acorn TV, you can sign up on their website HERE. Use code IHBT30 to get an extended 30-day trial (instead of the usual 7 days).
If you have a smart TV that isn't compatible with the Acorn TV app, or if you just prefer the convenience of Amazon's Prime Video platform and unified billing (for those who use multiple streaming services via Amazon), you can sign up HERE instead.
Either way, you can cancel easily – and ONLINE – when and if you choose. Both options have the same programming (we've gone through and verified this on a number of occasions), but some people report that one or the other seems to give them a better streaming experience – and Amazon occasionally has a very slight delay when adding or removing shows (usually no more than a few hours).

Whitstable Pearl, Season 2
Based on Julie Wassmer's Whitstable Pearl books, this mystery series follows the middle-aged Pearl Nolan – oyster restaurateur by day, private investigator in her free time. Once a struggling single mum, her boy is older now and she's able to pursue her dream of investigative work while also catching the eye of newly-transplanted-from-London police investigator Mike McGuire.
The whole thing is set against the backdrop of the gorgeous coastal town of Whitstable in Kent (that's in southeastern England near Canterbury, for those not up on their UK geography).
- November 28th: Episodes 1 & 2 of 6 (more coming in December!)
Transport (2022, Finnish)
This crime drama begins with a question: what is the value of life? It's not just about human life, either. What about animal life? A unique series, it looks for the moment when our sense of justice and integrity is either celebrated or compromised.
