Google loves giving things away, especially if it can convince you to sign up for one of its services for the first time. For example, you can already get a free Chromecast on Google TV ̵
This is a solid business if you’ve been thinking about YouTube TV and want to see what it’s all about. It’s not that much if you’re not interested in YouTube TV – you can get the new Chromecast right now for $ 50. A month of YouTube TV brings you back $ 65 thanks to the recent price hike. I’m still bitter about that.
But wait! Don’t sign up now – this deal won’t be valid until October 15th. But after that you have until the last day of 2020 to try so that you have plenty of time to make up your mind.
And if it wasn’t clear, this is only for new subscribers. If you’ve had YouTube TV in the past, no dice. If you currently have YouTube TV, you’re on the go too. That’s honestly a slap in the face after the recent price hike and subsequent loss of regional Fox Sports channels … but that’s another story for another day.
If you were planning on jumping on YouTube TV anyway, grabbing a free Chromecast is just the icing on the cake.
