Many shows on Acorn TV are available to download and watch offline on iOS and Android devices. To use this feature, (on available content) view the requirements and instructions below:


iOS 9.0 or later

Android 4.4.2 or later


Tap on any TV show or movie and look for the Downloads icon (downward facing arrow) to see whether it can be downloaded. Not all titles are available for download.

If your account is cancelled, TV shows and movies you’ve downloaded will be deleted from your device. You will need to download them again if you rejoin in the future.


Open Acorn TV app and select View My Downloads (if offline).

Find the title you want to watch and select Play.

Downloaded TV shows and movies are available on the device that was used to download them. Downloads will expire after a period of time, and some have a limit on how many times they can be downloaded per year.
