Own a copy of Angry Birds? Then you’ll be able to tune in to a new cartoon series that will launch through the game beginning on the weekend of March 16 – March 17. Rovio announced the news on Monday, and said that the “dedicated channel” will be available inside of Rovio’s published games as well as on other connected devices, such as Smart TVs. Rovio said the new cartoons will also air on TV networks around the globe.
“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 Rovio CEO Mikael Hed. “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.”
So how can you tune in? Easy. Update the game on March 17 (or tune into one of the networks showing the cartoon on March 16) and then open the application on your smart device and simply tap the icon representing the new video channel. Hopefully the cartoon is as addicting as the games.
