Rovio Launches Angry Birds Toons Video Channel with Brightcove Video Cloud

We are very excited to announce today that Rovio Entertainment, an entertainment media company headquartered in Finland and the creator of the globally successful Angry Birds franchise, has selected the Brightcove Video Cloud online video platform to support the launch of its Angry Birds Toons animated series.

Angry Birds fans, which equates to 1.7 billion people if you go by downloads of the game, can now watch the latest adventures of the birds and pigs across smartphones and tablets with the help of Video Cloud, which makes it possible for Rovio to publish and distribute the video series to audiences across devices. Rovio will release a new episode of Angry Birds Toons in its Angry Birds games, and to Smart TVs and other devices each Sunday at 8am GMT.

Commenting on the news, Nick Dorra, head of animation at Rovio, said:
"By partnering with Brightcove, we are able to quickly ramp our online video efforts and deliver on-demand episodes to viewers across devices, while ensuring a high quality viewing experience."

We are thrilled to partner with Rovio on this exciting initiative and give Angry Birds fans more opportunities to watch their favorite characters in action on any device.
