Acorn DVD is a trading name of RLJE International Ltd, a British company that publishes and distributes DVDs, as well as selling home-video products and streaming videos with a particular focus on British television.
Launched in 1997, Acorn Media U.K. Limited distributes collectible home video products in the U.K. market. By design, Acorn U.K.'s product line often overlaps with the Acorn Media U.S. line. This division of the company also serves as a permanent presence in the U.K. television programming community, a primary source of both Acorn Media U.S. and Acorn U.K. acquisitions.
Important programming franchises for this Acorn division include New Tricks, Criminal Justice, Midsomer Murders, Foyle's War, Trial & Retribution, Wild at Heart, Wainwright Walks, and Inspector George Gently.
In April 2007, Acorn Media U.K. launched Acacia U.K., a healthy joyful living brand encompassing licensed and original programming on DVD.
