July 20th, 2011 in News

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Roku is ready to hatch the popular "Angry Birds" video game on a new version of its set-top box for streaming online entertainment to TVs.

The addictive game and a controller will be included on a Roku box that will sell for $100. Prices for boxes that don't include "Angry Birds" and the game controller will range from $60 to $80.

Roku Inc. announced the prices for its next generation of players Wednesday. The devices will go on sale this month. Roku's disclosed its plans to add "Angry Birds" last month.

The new box represents the first time that "Angry Birds" can be easily played on a high-definition TV screen. The game has been downloaded on more than 200 million devices since its 2009 debut.
