Just subscribed to Acorn TV. I previously had an account but I cancelled it.

I get this message when I try to access a program. "You have already subscribed to Acorn TV via ROKU. Please use the credentials you used when you subscribed to sign in. *****" Not sure where to go from there!

Hello, thank you for using Howly. I’ll be happy to help you out! May I ask your name?

Nice to meet you, *****!
Did you try doing anything to fix the issue yourself?

Customer Replay

No, don't know what to do

No worries, just trying to find out as much as I can about the issue:)
Can you tell me on what device did you try to access Acorn TV?

Got you
Can you send us a pic of your TV screen with the message about your acorn account?
You can send it to our email here help@howly.com

Customer Replay

I just sent you the message verbatim on this chat

Yeah but a picture would bring some context to the issue it would help
But if you can't do that it's fine too, just let me know

Customer Replay

I can't do that

Are you attempting to watch Acorn through The Roku Channel and not the stand-alone Acorn channel?

Via Roku

  1. Log out of Acorn on your Roku
  2. Log in to Acorn on the website
  3. Use same payment method to pay to renew subscription. MUST be the same one.
  4. Wait until the website acknowledges account is active again Log back in to Acorn on your Roku (5-10 minutes)
  5. Log back in to Acorn on your Roku
  6. Check your payment for duplicate payment amount (may or may not be for Acorn).

K will try that

Take your time

Is there anything else I can do for you today?
