Acorn TV Brings International Fare To Xfinity/Comcast On-Demand
by Bruce Haring

The crime drama No Offence, the BBC comedy Detectorists, and the
Aussie period drama A Place To Call Home are among the shows now
available to US customers as Acorn TV, the largest North American SVOD
specializing in British and international TV, makes its set-top box
debut with Xfinity TV/Comcast.

Xfinity On Demand and the Xfinity Stream App and portal will bring
Acorn to Xfinity TV customers nationwide. It marks the first time that
Acorn TV is available on an MVPD set-top box. Xfinity TV customers
with an X1 Voice Remote can say “Acorn TV” to begin watching today, or
use their remote to navigate to the service within the Xfinity on
Demand menu.

Xfinity TV customers can addAcorn TV to their service for $4.99 per
month.

Oh, fuck that. There are any of two dozen ways to subscribe to Acorn TV
for $4.99 a month.

I have no idea what SVOD and MVPD stand for.

"Multichannel video programming distributor"

SVOD is a little trickier. I assume from the context they mean "SVoD" -
Subscription Video on Demand, and, like the typical lazy dishonest
illiterate reporter, spelled it wrong. With the capital O it refers to
the Silicon Valley Open Doors conference.
