He mentions that this marks the first time you can get Angry Birds on a TV. I have been playing it on my PS3 for months.

I thought that too, the PS3 part that is, haven't purchased it on PS3 though. I'll cut the guy some slack though as he probably meant "on tv" w/o a video game console, though a Roku is still a box so it's mostly semantics.

Also, free with the Google Chrome web browser, for the 2 people who haven't played it yet but might want to try it out.

I assume he turned off the sounds for the demo; the soundtrack is a big part of the fun with Angry Birds.

Actually, my comment in the video based on Roku's press release, dated June 1, 2011: "Roku Partners with Rovio to Bring First Angry Birds Experience to TV" On the PS3 are you playing through the browser, or is it an app? I wonder if that's how Roku made the distinction.

James, actually I had the TV audio on and was pretty bummed my camera didn't pick it up. It was low, but clearly audible in the room. Except the camera mics are on top (where I was speaking) and the speakers were well below that height. So the low volume combined with the positioning did it. Ah well.

Ah, technical troubles. Thanks for doing the vid; I enjoyed it, sound or no.
