Angry Birds titles that are in the App Store will be updated with a new video channel (http://www.rovio.com/en/news/press-releases/276/rovio-entertainment-to-launch-one-of-the-world's-biggest-video-networks-in-its-games/) that will allow access to the show. The cartoon will also be available on select TV networks, Samsung Smart TVs, Comcast's Xfinity platform, and Roku boxes.
"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."w5px1IbyAjw

How long are these episodes going to be? A year long season doesn't seem feasible for full length episodes...

Personally, I'm more excited for the Cyanide and Happiness cartoons this fall.

As little as I like Angry Birds, it's amazing to think that a mobile phone spawned an entire brand.
