The Google Chromecast is not only one of the most useful and innovative gadgets of the last few years, it’s also dazzlingly cheap. And if you’re looking to pick one up for the cheapest possible price, you’ve come to the right place! We usually see some decent discounts at this time of year too.
Chromecast is a wifi-connected HDMI dongle that you plug directly into your TV. From there you can use your smartphone or tablet to ‘throw’ video at your TV over wifi, whether it be Netflix movies, live football matches from the major broadcasters or simply just a funny YouTube video. On this page we’ll find you the best prices for the Chromecast Ultra, Chromecast 2 (or just Chromecast now) and Chromecast Audio and explain how they differ.
What is a good Chromecast deal?
This one’s easy. The standard price for a Chromecast 2 is $35 in the USA and £30 in the UK. You should never, ever pay more than that because you can always find one for that price.
However, at certain times of the year, prices tumble. On Black Friday last year, for example, we saw Chromecasts going for under $20 in the US, while the UK’s best price was £18 throughout November. That’s a hefty discount on an already super cheap, amazing gadget.
Chromecast 2 deals
The Chromecast 2, or ‘new Chromecast’ as it’s also known, is very similar to the now discontinued 2013 Chromecast. Sure, it looks a little different. And it’s got slightly faster network performance and a few other tweaks such as coming with a dangly cable instead of as a rigid stick. But essentially the same product in a different shape – that’s why the prices were basically the same. If you can find one for the same price, get this new one.
Chromecast Audio deals
While it doesn’t offer true multi-room streaming at the moment (fingers crossed that comes soon), this easy-to-use and affordable device modernizes any trusty set of wired speakers you already own with wireless capabilities. In doing so, it also opens them up to features that will grow and get even better over time. Got an old set of speakers or an ancient iPod dock? Turn it into a wireless speaker with Chromecast Audio!
Chromecast Ultra deals
Google only recently announced Chromecast Ultra, its new 4K Chromecast device. If you have a 4K TV or are planning on getting one, it may be worth holding on for one of these. This is a cheaper alternative to Amazon’s Fire TV or the US-only Roku 4 for getting 4K content on your TV. Expect Chromecast Ultra deals to launch for £69/$69 in November. We’ll be sure to bring you the best 4K Chromecast prices on this very page.
