Apple TV and On-Demand Resources (Or: Why Games Are Not Limited to 200 MB on Apple TV)

Serenity Caldwell, writing at iMore:

Based on a screenshot from Apple’s developer guidelines, there are some folks up in arms about the new Apple TV’s 200 MB limit for app bundles (the app you download from the Apple TV’s App Store).

200 MB isn’t a whole lot of storage for game levels, offline content services, or anything really of the sort. The good news is, 200 MB is just the size limit for your initial App Store download. Once you open the app, you can download up to 2 GB more per app, with up to 20 GB of other resources available in the cloud. Apple lets developers do this by using On-Demand Resources, and here’s how it works.

Great explanation.
