Rovio has teamed up with Comcast to offer access to the cartoon on Xfinity on Demand, the Xfinity TV Player app, Samsung Smart TVs, and soon Roku set-top boxes. More platforms will be announced in time. The gaming studio has also teamed up with Activision, Paramount Pictures, BlackBerry, and Sony Pictures for the launch.
 
We've already got to know some of the cast of the cartoons, having flung them to their doom countless times, but we'll get a more personal look at their lives and personalities. There is Red, Chuck, Bomb, Matilda, Terence, and the Blues. And let's not forget the Pigs.
 
“We want to combine the feel of cartoon classics with modern twists on an unprecedented scale. Our team has been working tremendously hard to once again delight our fans with a new way to experience these loveable characters,” said Nick Dorra, Head of Animation at Rovio.
