Verizon Fios offers 100/100MB Data, Custom TV and Phone Triple Play plan now for $69.99 a month (The price is good for one year then it is subject to increase after that time). With it you get Internet with matching 100Mbps upload and download speeds, customizable TV and unlimited nationwide calling with features including voice mail, caller ID and call waiting. You can also choose to get it with no annual contract and as a limited time offer you get free installation ($80 value) but other fees may apply.

This is one of the best deals we’ve seen from Verizon and the free setup is a huge bonus. Typically, we would expect a plan like this to be upwards of $100 a month, especially for such high transfer speeds.

Chromecast and Sling TV have partnered to offer an extended two month free trial of the online streaming service ($40 value). First time Sling customers with a Chromecast have until December 28th to grab a 60-day free peak at the Best of Live TV package. Simply visit this page to begin your trial. You’ll want to cancel the service before the two months is up, otherwise you’ll be charged $20 for the next month.

Typically, Sling only offers a 7-day trial, so if you’ve been holding out on trying this service, now is your best bet to give it a run. Offer does not include any extras or HBO service. Full terms and condition can be found below.

Sling TV launched last January to much fanfare as an alternative to pricey cable and satellite services. It offers popular channels like ESPN/2, AMC, TBS, TNT, HGTV and others. Additionally, it has a number of add-on packages for those interested in premium channels like HBO. Packages start at $20 with more channels available for as little as $5.

The latest Google Chromecast is available for $30 at Walmart (Reg. $35). New users can take advantage of a handful of freebies, including a $20 Google Play credit that is available through the end of the year.
