I do. I use the direct app (great PQ) on my Sony UHDTV. Much quicker than the H3.

We use it for Doc Martin and almost nothing else.

I subscribe through Amazon so it shows up in the Prime Video app on Dish. Very convenient.

I do the same.
By the way... My wife used my FireTV Stick to subscribe to Paramount+. I can't get to it by logging into the Paramount+ app (username or password are wrong), but I can get to it via Prime Video without logging into Paramount+ at all. This works on all our FireTV Sticks, but does not work on our Roku TV's. On Roku TVs neither logging into Paramount+ (either part of Prime or separate app) with my Amazon credentials, nor my wife's, allow us to view Paramount+. :(

Any ideas?

Our county library offered Acorn free but you had to renew your account every two weeks which was a pain. We now subscribe to Britbox. If you having a streaming device, you can find some of the shows on Acorn available on other apps for free.

Yep. Thank you. But Doc Martin’s final season is our only interest.

Instead of logging into Paramount+ on your Roku, install Amazon Prime Video and log into that. It will have your Paramount+ subscription.

That is a great suggestion. Unfortunately, I already have the Amazon Prime app on my Roku TVs, and it's even logged into my Amazon account. And still I cannot watch my Paramount+ sub.
