the difference is, the apps use apple's storefront, apple's payment gateway, apple's software and update distribution, apple's ad network, etc, etc, etc. apple is earning their cut.

netflix is ONLY using internet bandwidth that has ALREADY been bought and paid for by them and by their customers. isp's have already made their money on providing the pipes, they don't deserve a penny of netflix revenues, or any 'tax' or 'surcharges' from their customers.

If at first you don't succeed, you must be a programmer.
