"A Disney branded app for Star Wars will launch on Apple TV devices, with plans to distribute the final Clone Wars episodes exclusively digitally only through the Apple TV device for a limited period of time. This will happen in this holiday season.Let's break this down. The rumor seems to be that The Clone Wars bonus content will be exclusive to this Star Wars channel (channels are equivalent to apps on Apple TV) for a limited time, and that Episode VII news and some kind of Rebels content will also be on the app, but not necessarily exclusively.
In 2014, plans are in an early stage to use the platform to deliver SW7 production news 'live' from the sets, followed with Star Wars Rebels in late 2014 taking us all the way through to SW7 release."
"Distribution will only be on Apple TV devices capable of running iOS7 and there has been no confirmation if the same app will be available to other iOS devices such as iPad or iPhone."Jedi News notes that this seems to exclude the first-generation Apple TV (pictured here), because it may not be able to run iOS7, Apple's latest mobile operating system. Additionally, this Apple TV channel will not necessarily translate into a traditional iOS app for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch devices.
