Amazon is now offering the Chromecast streaming media player for $35 with free shipping. This total can be up to $6 lower than ordering from the Google Play store when you take into account potential tax savings (at time of purchase) and shipping costs.
This device will wirelessly beam movies, music, web content and more from Android, iOS, Mac and PC devices to any HDTV via a WiFi connection. As of right now the Chromecast supports Google Play, YouTube, Netflix, and Chrome, but Google promises future support for more services. 9to5Google notes that in some respects it is even more versatile than an Apple TV, “Unlike Airplay, the Chromecast stick allows to original device to turn off or go to sleep. It functions as as a standalone streaming device, awaiting orders…”
We are expecting demand to be high for this player so be sure to get your order in early if you are interested.
