It's nearly October! Autumn, Halloween, Bonfire Day, and chilly weather are all just around the corner (for most of us, anyway). A new month brings new British TV on our favourite streaming services, and October is no exception. In the upcoming month, we'll get one new British TV series, a new episode of Agatha Raisin, and a continuation of new Doc Martin episodes (it premiered in September) – plus a variety of other programs from Ireland, Australia, Italy, and America. 

If you don't already subscribe to Acorn TV, you can sign up on their website HERE. If you have a smart TV that isn't compatible with their app (like a Samsung) or you prefer to subscribe through Amazon Video, you can sign up HERE instead. Either way you do it, you get a free 7-day trial, and both offer easy online cancellation if you decide it's not for you. Both options have the same programming, though some people have reported slightly smoother streaming on Amazon (and occasionally, a delay of a few hours for new programming to appear).
