Celebrate the YouTube TV 4K launch with a free Chromecast with Google TV (if you're lucky)

Celebrate the YouTube TV 4K launch with a free Chromecast with Google TV (if you're lucky)
Launched all the way back in early 2017, YouTube TV somehow didn't offer 4K content viewing support until just a few days ago. In contrast, this has been a thing on Netflix since 2014 (!!!), although Sling TV (which is far more similar to Google's streaming TV service) still doesn't come with a 4K option.

Speaking of options, we're pretty sure a lot of YouTube TV subscribers were put off by the $20 monthly cost of the "4K Plus" add-on after already seeing their base package jump to $65 last year, but for what it's worth, Big G is reportedly throwing in a nice little deal sweetener.

Unfortunately, not everyone can qualify for a free Chromecast with Google TV, and in addition to obviously being a US-only thing, you'll have to meet a couple of other special conditions to claim your $50-worth gift.

Aimed at "loyal" YouTube TV members, the hot new promotion naturally requires an active subscription with "at least one valid payment" made prior to the redemption of this offer. 

That's certainly not very restrictive, but on the not so bright side of things, you'll also need a specific "coupon link" delivered by email to be able to order a gratis Chromecast with Google TV from the company's official US e-store, and only select YouTube TV users are seemingly getting these emails.

Basically, if you're lucky, you're lucky, and if not... there's nothing you can do, regardless of your "loyalty" and longevity using YouTube TV. If you are lucky, it would definitely be a shame to miss Google's email and/or forget to redeem the freebie by July 31.
