Acorn TV and UP Faith and Family

I have a paid subscription to Acorn and Up Faith and family that I watch through my computer ( a hassel). Do I have to cancel those and then subscribe through Roku.

Re: Acorn TV and UP Faith and Family

Have you tried just installing the channels and signing in with your existing credentials? It should work for Acorn, I know nothing about the other one.

Re: Acorn TV and UP Faith and Family

@KLew 

As @denhow indicated, if you install AcornTV Channel on your Roku device, you should be able to use the same login credentials. (You will also continue to pay Acorn directly for your subscription).  By doing this, you will continue to be able to watch Acorn across all your devices.

Problems arise when you subscribe to "Acorn on the Roku Channel" because you are limited to watching Acorn only on your linked Roku devices through your Roku account.

For simplicity, since you have an existing Acorn account, just install the AcornTV channel on your Roku devices and you should be good to go.

Re: Acorn TV and UP Faith and Family

@KLew- Same goes for Up Faith & Family.  Install their Roku up from the channel store, then log into it with your Up Faith & Family credentials (not your Roku credentials).
