The countdown begins until New Zealand is in lock-down. If you’re not the one to panic buy toilet paper at this time, then you’re probably one that is feeling particularly anxious over how bored you’re going to be for this period of time. I’m the latter.

I can get away with not leaving my house or seeing a single person for a week, but four weeks? I can only twiddle my thumbs for so long!

GOOD NEWS. For me, and you. We can enjoy free streaming for 30 days with Acorn-TV. Their 7-day trial has now extended to the full month.

How do I get a 30-day free trial?

Enter the code: ACORNTVNZ30 on their website for access to the best of the best British and international programs.

Save the date! April 13th, when we are all well into our comfort binge, AcornTV will be releasing the New Zealand premiere of Finding Joy, a six-part Irish comedy written and starring IFTA award-winner Amy Huberman.
