Rovio has announced that it will air its new animated series 'Angry Birds Toons' via its Angry Birds games, select on-demand providers, Smart TVs, connected devices, and select TV networks.

“We’ve long wanted to tell our fans the story of the Angry Birds and the Bad Piggies, to introduce their personalities and their world in detail.” said Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio. “We’re delighted to introduce all this through our new channel, with easy and instant access to the stories in the palm of your hand. With over 1.7 billion downloads, we can reach a far wider and more engaged global audience than traditional distribution would allow. Launching the channel, and partnering up with some of the best video-on-demand providers and TV networks, is an important milestone for us on our journey towards becoming a fully fledged entertainment powerhouse.”

Angry Birds Toons will feature 52 episodes, with a new episode released each week, starting March 16th on TV broadcast and March 17th in all Angry Birds apps and on video-on-demand platforms. To watch the series through Rovio’s Angry Birds Toons channel, fans simply download the latest update to any Angry Birds game, which will unlock the new channel button in the game homescreen on March 17th.

Additionally, an Angry Birds Toons channel will be available on all of Comcast's video platforms in the US including Xfinity on Demand, online at Xfinity.com/tv and the Xfinity TV Player app and globally on Samsung Smart TVs at launch, followed by Roku boxes and other platforms.

On March 16th, Angry Birds Toons will land on television networks around the globe. Fans can tune in each week to FOX8 in Australia, JEI TV in Korea, ANTV in Indonesia, Cartoon Network in India, MTV3 Juniori and MTV3 in Finland, the Children's Channel in Israel, 1+1 networks in Ukraine, Gulli and Canal J in France, SUPER RTL in Germany, TV2 in Norway, Canal 13 in Chile and Gloob in Brazil to see the latest Angry Birds Toons episode.
