Can't access Acorn through Roku on another user's device

Husband has purchased Acorn through Roku on his Roku account.

I want to be able to watch it with his login on my new Roku device (different account).  When I click on Acorn TV in the Roku Channel, I only have the option to trial/subscribe.  I do not have the option to log in with my husband's ID and password..  Shouldn't Acorn T on Roku be available on any account with the correct name and password?

Re: Can't access Acorn through Roku on another user's device


Subscriptions made through Roku are attached to the Roku account being used at the time.  They can only be viewed on a Roku linked to that same Roku account. 

If you want to view on other Roku accounts, and/or other device platforms altogether, subscribe directly with the streaming service on its website.
