    (after some research indicates Acorn is a streaming service offering British programming to US and Canada customers...)

    Not possible, unless they decide to work with TiVo to write an app.

    You can't, you need a device such as a Roku that supports it with an app, Tivo does not support it.

    As others have indicated, you can't, since Acorn.TV is its own streaming service -- a TiVo app for which does not exist.

    That said, my mom *was* able to use her TiVo to access Acorn.TV content -- when you could separately subscribe to Acorn content through Youtube. They've since discontinued the Youtube subscription option, likely coinciding with their upgrading their own streaming service's bandwidth performance.

    So it's over to her Roku 3 for Acorn and HBOgo.

    You can access Acorn programs through Amazon Prime as a "channel" but they don't show up in listings or searches. The subscription is paid through Amazon.

    We got a Roku 4 for Acorn. I think there is no “agreement” between TiVo and Acorn thus no Search function.

    Sometimes they are called hit and run. Sometimes one and gone. The OP first post was the last time there was a visit. So over two years ago.
