For a limited time, Acorn TV is offering a free 14-day trial of its subscription service, which gives you access to every episode of every show that it is streaming, not just the first one, which is available to everyone. This offer is great by itself, but what makes it even better is that you get to watch programs that aren't available for streaming anywhere else, or available but only if you pay a per-episode fee or have an Amazon Prime membershipor Netflix DVD subscription

To see all eight episodes of the legal dramedy, The Brief,starring Alan Davies, you have Amazon Instant Video($4.99/episode) or Acorn TV ($0 during the free trial period).
And while you can rent Netflix DVDsfor the medical dramedy, Monroe,starring James Nesbitt, or stream all eight episodes at Amazon($3.99/episode or $0 with an Amazon Prime membership), you can use the 14 days to watch them for free with Acorn TV.
Those are just three of the 20 programs that Acorn TV is currently streaming.

Another program I'm excited about is the British version of Maigret,starring Michael Gambon. (The French-language version,starring Bruno Cremer, is fabulous.) Acorn TV starts streaming it on 31 Dec, so I'll be taking the Series 1 discs out of my Netflix DVD queue.

Acorn TV streams all shows for roughly a month, and each week three of them drop off the schedule and are replaced by new program choices. To access all of them for as long as they're available, get a subscription for $29.99/year or $2.99/month.
If you don't yet have a subscription, head over to Acorn TV and give it a go with the 14-day free trial before the offer ends.
