Angry Birds, which hit 1 billion downloads last year May, has flung itself past another milestone by topping 1.7 billion downloads across the series.
Developer Rovio announced the milestone when revealing that the upcoming cartoon series starring the various birds, as well as the little green pigs, would be distributed via the Angry Birds games as well as other channels.
The animated series will be launching this weekend, via some TV networks, smart TVs and “some of the best video-on-demand providers” but the short episodes will also be available in the game itself at the touch of a button. The in-game episodes will be available once a week for its entire 52-episode run, a day after each episode premieres on TV networks.
Networks in Australia, Brazil, Chile, Finland, France, Germany, Indonesia, India, Israel, Norway and South Korea have all signed up for some Angry Birds cartoon love. At least it isn’t the Farmville TV series.
