Google really wants you to buy a Chromecast, latest freebie mix worth $80


If you haven’t yet treated your TV to a Chromecast stick to stream content from your Android devices, Google would really like you to do so. The company has been playing with its mix of freebies again, with $80 worth on offer if you buy between today and 19th April.

Current offers include three-month trial subscriptions to Google Play Music, DramaFever and Sesame Street GO, as well as one month of Qelio Concerts and a free Play Movies rental thrown in – and you can even save a few bucks on Amazon at the moment … 

Engadget speculates that Google wants to increase the number of Chromecast devices in use in order to boost its negotiating power with content providers.

Google offered a free $6 movie credit to Chromecast owners last month, and has been gradually adding to the functionality, most recently allowing you to play and pause content with your TV remote.

As always with free trials, check the small-print to ensure you cancel by the cut-off date if you don’t want to start paying for a service, and keep an eye out on 9to5Toys for all the latest deals.
