Disney recently announced a $30 Season Pass for the full season of Star Wars Rebels, which is available on iTunes. iTunes is currently offering the third episode, called Droids In Distress, as a free download. Since the first two episodes were combined to make Star Wars Rebels: The Movie, iTunes must consider episode 3 as the first official episode of the series. So iTunes is providing a free sample for those interested in the series.
What makes this even more interesting is that this episode has not yet aired on the Disney Channel or Disney XD and wont for a few more weeks.
Special thanks for the site FuriousFanboys.com for the heads up!

Here is a description of the episode:
Droids In Distress – The rebels intercept a shipment of weapons intended for the Empire and accidentally end up hosting a pair of droids.
Star Wars Rebels is an animated TV series set between the events of Episode III and IV. The series will begin five years before Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, fourteen years into the reign of the Galactic Empire. The general premise is described as follows: “It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. But there are a select few who are brave enough to stand up against the endless Stormtroopers and TIE fighters of the Empire: the clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, have thrilling adventures, and become heroes.”
