Hello and welcome to JustAnswer, I look forward to assisting you today. Are you able to access other streaming services like Netflix from your TV?

I have Netflix

Okay good. Acorn is not one of the main streaming services, so the only way you will be able to receive it is by using an external streaming device like a Roku or Firestick.

where do I find these? By the way I signed up before I asked my question and then again to get an answer. Will this cause confusion with payments? Thanks for your help.

Here is a LINK for Roku. You can either sign up for membership or simply pay by the question. If you have a problem with your payment options, just contact customer service.
