Fundamentally different since physical items are not subject to the mandatory use of Apple in-app billing and the 30% "Apple tax".

Isn't the tax, 15% now?
Only for subscriptions, not for individual items (like buying or renting a single movie). There are also some more conditions:

- Non-video subscriptions are 30% for the first year, and 15% after that
- Video subscriptions apparently can be 15% right from the start as long as they support the new TV app (according to this Bloomberg report). I also suspect that Apple gave sweetheart deals to some providers like HBO, but of course nobody will publicly confirm this.
