Acorn TV Founders Get into the Fitness-Video Game
RLJ Entertainment, the company behind the British-TV subscription streaming service Acorn TV, is launching its second digital channel. The company has unveiled Acacia TV, a new digital video service focused on providing all sorts of fitness content.
RLJ and Acacia have been producing fitness DVD content since 2006. The plan is to now bring all of that existing content, as well as newly produced stuff, to Acacia TV.
In total, Acacia TV, which can be found online and on Roku devices, offers 75 hours of fitness and exercise content, ranging from yoga and Pilates, to other disciplines like strength training, dance, barre, abs and core, pregnancy, low impact, therapeutic, cardio, tai chi, and kettlebell.
The service’s workout programming features instructors such as yoga specialist Shiva Rea and longtime fitness guru Kathy Smith, as well as recognizable faces like Bethenny Frankel, Kenya Moore (“Real Housewives of Atlanta”), and Olympic gold medalist Kristi Yamaguchi.
Similar to Acorn TV, Acacia TV is available for $6.99 per month, $14.99 for 90 days, or $49.99 per year. The subscription service features no ads, and also offers a 10-day free trial to new users.Tags: Acacia TV, Acorn TV, Bethenny Frankel, fitness, Kristi Yamaguchi, RLJ Entertainment, streaming video, SVOD, Yoga
