There are less than 24 hours to Launch Night In and we’ve already seen some last minute leaks. The latest comes from the Canadian Google Store, which briefly revealed tonight how Chromecast with Google TV buyers in that country will get six months of free Netflix.
A Reddit user spotted the unannounced Chromecast with Google TV on the Canadian Google Store’s special offers page. We get another view of the incoming streaming dongle and the blank voice remote. It will cost $ 69 CAD, compared to $ 49 in the US. For comparison, the Chromecast Ultra costs $ 69 in the US and $ 90 in Canada.
However, what’s more interesting is how you̵
This is a significant offer that essentially pays for the new Chromecast. It comes as the included remote features a dedicated button (along with YouTube) to start the popular streaming service.
Google has since removed the Chromecast with the Google TV special offer touting Netflix. This was allegedly a first reveal from the Google Store, but it could also just be an initial marketing copy that has since changed. It’s possible this deal will only be available on devices purchased through the Google Store, which would be a phenomenal incentive for direct purchase.
Another unknown is whether any other country will receive the same six-month offer. Those who managed to get a new Chromecast early in the US did not receive any documentation or communications referencing this deal. Of course, they all bought from third-party resellers.
