Amazon is offering the Google Chromecast for $30 with free standard shipping (3-5 days) for all orders or 2-day for Prime members (free trial). That’s a savings of 14% off list and about the best you’ll do on one of these gadgets except for the student-only promo we featured last month. Also available from Staples with the possibility of an extra 5% back in rewards. Rated 4 out of 5 stars from nearly 12,000 Amazon reviewers.
The Chromcast will wirelessly beam movies, music, web content and more from Android, iOS, Mac and PC devices to any HDTV via a WiFi connection. It supports Google Play, YouTube, Netflix, and just recently added compatibility for Plex, Vevo and several other apps. Here’s our Chromecast ‘how-to’ guide to help you get set-up and streaming within minutes.
