Midsomer Murders

by Kathleen Costa


The pandemic has directly effected our lives in many ways and we have tried desperately to find ways to keep ourselves engaged or distracted. We’re used to reruns, and in many cases don’t mind binging our favorite sit-com and movie series, but there’s On Demand, Netflix, Pay-Per-View, and a wide selection of streaming services for reasonable to “Ouch!” fees. For several years now, my “reasonable” membership in two streaming services has provided this Anglophile access to a wide variety of UK television shows and movies, some new and some longtime favorites.

So many streaming options are available nowadays, each varying in type of programming, devices needed, and membership requirements. I have been a member of AcornTV for over two years, and with a reasonable monthly fee and annual payment option, I have been thrilled with the diversity of genre, original air date, country of origin, number of episodes, and length of availability.

BritBox and Acorn-TV are the best to whet any Anglophile’s appetite, and with very few, if any, overlaps in programming, I can justify having both services.
