Chicago’s 'cloud tax' makes Netflix and other streaming services more expensive

Chicago’s 'cloud tax' makes Netflix and other streaming services more expensiveThe past five years have seen a huge shift in the way we consume media, as brick-and-mortar stores shift to digital subscriptions.

Watch the powerful first trailer for Rocky spinoff Creed2015 might be Michael B. Jordan's breakout year. With Fantastic Four now on the way for August, the Wire alum's next vehicle will put him in the boxing ring alongside Rocky Balboa himself.
