If you’ve ever wondered what Angry Birds and Bad Piggies do when you’re not playing with them on your tablet or smartphone, you will soon find out on Xfinity TV.
With close to two billion app downloads, Angry Birds has been a wildly popular game for all ages. And now, beginning tomorrow, they will win over Xfinity TV customers on multiple screens with the debut of a weekly Angry Birds Toons animated series. Xfinity TV is the first United States-based partner to offer the Angry Birds Toons channel to its customers. The animated shorts will be available for viewing across all platforms, including on TV on Xfinity On Demand, online at Xfinity.com/tv and through the Xfinity TV Player App.
Angry Birds-creator Rovio Entertainment is setting an industry first by launching a video distribution channel across all of its Angry Birds game titles on smartphones and tablets. Xfinity TV will be a premiere TV destination for fans to enjoy the latest adventures of the birds and their arch-enemies, the Bad Piggies, when the animated series premieres on March 17.
Angry Bird Toons will feature 52 three minute episodes, with a new episode released each week. The 13 most recently premiered shorts will be available to Xfinity TV customers of any subscription level, as well as additional special content and featurettes.
