1. Lots and lots of BBC/Brit shows.

An Anglophile's dream.

2. You can look at the offerings of both without subscribing

Both have programming that isn't on the other, and both also have Canadian, Australian, New Zealand, and Irish programming.

Here's the link to Acorn's complete listing:

https://acorn.tv/browse/browseall

Here's a link to Hulu's listings of British TV:

http://www.hulu.com/british

You can also do searches for "Canadian," "Austrlian," and "New Zealand" on their website.

There's little enough overlap that I subscribe to both.

Acorn also sells DVDs, and you get free shipping with a membership. Their shipping of other products is really slow, however. I bought a lovely tunic (it really is lovely), but it took four months to arrive.

3. Bummer...I'd love to subscribe to Acorn, but they don't take American Express

and you have to sign up with Facebook for Hulu.

4. I love it

Inexpensive - lots of BBC, Canadian and Aussie series.

Not as many offerings, but they suit me. Signed up as a gift to myself on a sad anniversary.

Hooked on Kingdom, Vera, just to name two.

Many offerings are dated, but since not shown here, fine with me.

I get Netflix (via a relative), Amazon (via Prime) and now Acorn. Don't have Hulu.

Anything to save me from most Cable Political theater.
