However, given that the promotion was one in limited quantities, Google sold out of it so quickly some (including prominent Apple fanalysts) thought it was a mistake. It’s not - the limited Netflix deal was exactly what Google announced it was - limited. Google even released an official message explaining the situation:
“Due to overwhelming demand for Chromecast devices since launch, the 3-month Netflix promotion (which was available in limited quantities) is no longer available.”
Right now, the Chromecast is sold out on Amazon as demand for the tiny TV streamer is huge. You can still get it on Google Play and on Best Buy.
Even without the free Netflix deal, at $35, the Chromecast still seems like a steal to us. What do you think, have you gotten yours already?
