AMC Networks’ British-themed subscription streaming video service Acorn TV is launching operations in Spain.
Acorn TV, which is part of home entertainment distributor RLJ Entertainment that AMC owns a majority stake in, last December announced plans to launch service in Australia, New Zealand, India, South Africa, 10 European countries, South America, as well as Caribbean countries.
Consumers can go to acorn.tv to subscribe or access the service via apps on Apple TV, Android, iPhone, iPads, and Roku streaming players. The programs will be in English-language with English and Spanish subtitles available. The Acorn TV streaming service is available for €4.99 per month.
“Streaming is booming in Spain with 74% of users watching TV content through the Internet, placing Spain as the largest streaming penetration country in the world – even ahead of USA”, Miguel Penella, CEO of RLJ Entertainment, said in a statement.
