Google's Chromecast HDMI streaming media player (1080p video, 5.1 channel audio capable) is now available for PREORDER for just $35 with FREE shipping. As a promo, they're throwing in 3 months of Netflix service (good for both new or existing Netflix customers, 1 per account, $24 value) on top of that... meaning you're effectively getting the Chromecast for $11. We're not sure how long the Netflix promo will last, so get in on the preorder while you can. The real wildcard is the developer preview of the Google Cast SDK being published with libraries for iOS, Android, and Chrome. This may open up a world of possibilities with this device. We here at GotApex.com couldn't resist this deal and have all preordered. GOOGLE CHROMECAST HDMI STREAMING MEDIA PLAYER PREORDER
- Update: No longer orderable. They sold too many. It should be back though. This being said, we're not positive if the Netflix 3-month free will be available when the Chromecast is back for ordering.
- Update 2: Looks like the Netflix promotion is over for good. Everyone who ordered from Amazon when we posted (before the update) will get their Netflix promo though. Per Amazon: Netflix Promotion No Longer Available Please note that the Netflix promotional offer (which was available in limited supply) has now ended. Customers who ordered their Chromecast prior to 5:31 PM PST on July 24, 2013 will receive a Netflix gift code via email within 5 days of their product's ship date.
