Roku has announced it will be bringing Rovio's insanely popular Angry Birds game to television through its Roku players. Roku will also feature an Angry Birds video channel and a store selling merchandise.
We just announced that Angry Birds will come to the Roku platform by the end of the summer. Roku will offer Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio video games; launch an Angry Birds video channel featuring Angry Birds animated shorts; and sell Angry Birds merchandiseóall via the Roku Channel Store. Iím personally super excited about this! My kids wonít have to fight over playing games on smaller screens and with all the Angry Birdís cartoons coming to Roku, everyone will have plenty of ways to see their favorite feathered friends.How will you play Angry Birds on your television? The details of that have not been released. PC World says some sort of new controller for the Roku may be needed. Bloomberg says people who want to play the game will need a new Roku Player.
