All passes are checked out through the RBdigital website or app. After a pass is checked out, you can download the regular AcornTV app using a Roku, Roku television, or Amazon Firestick. Use the same login and password as the RBdigital account and the app will work immediately. If a message appears offering a free trial, you need to check out another 7-day pass. All the programs may be watched through the RBdigital app since the “AcornTV” app does not work with all devices.
