There’s a whole new world of British and Spanish-language movies and television shows to stream through the Cobb County library website.

The county library system announced on Friday via its Facebook page.

Acorn TV, which advertises itself as having the best selection of programs and movies from across the pond, is one of the additions.

Acorn offers many shows, including “Midsomer Murders” — a very British detective show that has been running on their ITV since 1997.

Described as “Netflix for Latinos,” Póngalo, is a Spanish-language streaming service that has telenovelas and movies. Ever wanted to watch “White Chicks” in Spanish? Dalé.

A creator of the service, Jorge Granier, executive producer of the CW’s “Jane The Virgin,” told the Miami Herald in January 2017 that it was “Netflix for Latinos.”

Library members can now access full-length concerts and music documentaries from Qello Concerts.

There will also be more independent movies and television shows with IndieFlix.

With library membership, those can all be accessed here.
