Chromecast with Google TV & 6 Months of Netflix ($95.94 Worth of Credit) for $139.99 @ Google Store

4490

Google just announced the Chromecast with Google TV for $99, but a little less known is a deal that allows you to tack on 6 months of Netflix ($95.94 worth of credit) for a grand total of $139.99, bringing the effective price of the Chromecast to $44.05.

Seems to be a long-running deal (through to December 31, 2021).

Tips:

  • If you're a Google One subscriber, you'll get 3% back in store credit if you're on a 200 GB plan, or 10% back in store credit if you're on a 2 TB or higher plan.
  • You can purchase three of these bundles per Google account.
  • The deal is available to both new and existing Netflix subscribers.
  • The 6 months of Netflix offer is based on a Standard plan ($15.99/month). Netflix works off a dollar-based credit model, so if you're on a Basic plan ($10.99/month), you'll actually get 8.73 months worth of credit, but if you're on a Premium plan ($19.99/month), you'll get 4.80 months worth of credit.
  • If you've redeemed the Netflix offer, but end up returning the Chromecast, Google will refund you $99; meaning you'll still have scored $95.94 worth of Netflix credit for $40.99.

Note: Previously out of stock, and now back in stock! If it goes out of stock again, keep refreshing the page as Google has progressively added stock on previous occasions.

  • Great deal, just ordered. No-brainer upgrading from a ChromeCast Ultra that I can probably sell for $40-$50 on marketplace

    • I've got the 4K Ultra - whats the benefit in the upgrade? Apart from the TV interface (which I doubt I'd use) what else is better?

      • You also get the remote. I guess where it's a no brainer for me is that I'm already paying for Netflix regardless, so getting the new one for $45 and selling the old for probably the same. Free upgrades are always a no brainer 😁

      • LMGTFY

      • Built in 8GB (4GB usable for apps) no need for phone.

    • Sold my chromecast 3 in new like condition for 40 and bought this, will hardly use it but can give netflix voucher to someone else in family who uses it way more than me.
      Also Still have not received my order from google yet, Website shows delivering in Late November

  • Can the Netflix credit be applied to any plan?

  • +11 votes

    Wouldn't mind one of these devices, but not sure the credit will be of use. Am still enjoying the fruits of paying in another country/currency.

    • How many months is it in Argentinian pesos?

    • Looks like it applies a $96 credit, so assuming that works for a non AU account you could get far more than the 6 months….

      • Interested to hear more on this!
        Like many other I have a couple of Chromcast 4K Ultra, and have been thinking about Netflix (currently on 12 month-free BINGE from Telstra deal).
        Does it worth biting the bullet and sell one of my Ultra's to get this? Suggestions are welcome.
        Ta

      • Can someone confirm this? Would be interested to know!

      • Does it work that way even for non AU accounts? I signed up back when I lived in Singapore and never converted to an Australian plan after I repatriated back.

      • Looks like it might, or it might use Aus pricing as soon as it charges in AUD (the credit is in AUD afterall).

        One way to find out, anybody game to volunteer?

    • i would assume that in that case, you will get more months of netflix, so if the premium plan is 4.8 months, then you would be getting something like 9.6 or so.

      • I wouldn't expect it to work that way. I would imagine the credit would be in Aussie $ and you could not apply that credit an account with payment registered in another country, although I'm happy to be proven wrong.

    • Yes, I'm on the Turkish top plan at about A$7.40. If I buy 3 of these that's 3 years worth IF it stacks and IF it can be used for the Turkish plan.

      • Do you always have to use a vpn to use it? Or only during signup?

        • Only during signup. You also need a credit card that works in foreign currencies. 28 Degrees Mastercard works for me.

          You only need a VPN to get Netflix of a different country for their content, but I don't bother as the Australian is ok. Chasing a VPN that works for that is a pain.

      • The more variables, the more chance for something to go wrong.

      • yo i thought Argentina was cheapest? i checked last time for my 4k plan it was like 12 bucks lol i guess their currency recovered, how much are you paying for the 4k plan with turkey?

    • How much are you paying in another country/currency for Netflix? What’s the process of doing so? Will I need VPN to access the content on my overseas Netflix subscription on my smart tv? I am paying regular Australian price on my Netflix and want to cut that down just like I did with Youtube Premium by signing that up on Youtube India. Thanks

      • It varies according to exchange rate, but about A$8-9 for the top plan. Process described in a post above. Then get some other users to share the cost.

      • It ends up being $9.XX per month for a family level plan from memory after conversion. It fluctuates because of currency changes. I can't remember which country I signed up via.

        You only need a VPN to sign up for a particular's country's netflix price. After sign up, you can access Netflix without VPN, but only for their Australian library/content.
        If you want to access overseas shows, you need a VPN but might be a bit slow if your VPN provider isn't good.

        There's another ozbargain thread somewhere in the past that goes through more detail. Do a search and there will be more tips and tricks to help you.

    • This deal would be gold if AUD$96 can be used for foreign currency Netflix accounts. Unfortunately I don't think this is possible as I've looked into Netflix's T&C.

      If I purchase a gift card in one country, can I use it in another country?
      *Yes. You can use a gift card purchased in a different country as long as the gift card is for the same currency as your Netflix bill.

  • I have a Chromecast Ultra. Would it be worthwhile getting this? Not sure if it would be an upgrade or downgrade.

    I don't care about Netflix.

    • probably don't need to upgrade if you have no issues and don't use netflix. But if you don't have either and non-smart tv its a good buy.

      I don't have etiher but don't think I need it, save some dollars and just get a chromecast. Smart TV already has the buttons/apps for viewing paid tv

    • I'd say yes because you're getting the Google TV experience as well as all the 4k chromecasting-ness you had before. You don't need another device now to control the CC, just use the remote included.

    • I had chromecast 3 sold mine for bought 40 barely used. And got this one givin the voucher to sister ( i dont use netflix) hence works out a really good deal upgrade.

  • is this pretty much buying a chromecast ultra (discontinued) + remote (+netflix)

    Also in the US store you can get a new power adaptor with ethernet connection https://store.google.com/us/product/chromecast_ethernet_adap...

  • If the chromecast is the device name, what exactly is 'google tv'? Is it like YouTube TV?

    • the updated interface

    • It's just Android TV, Google being Google again and renaming everything

    • Google TV is their version of Android TV. While most modern TVs come with the standard Android TV, Google has created a new skin on top with new features.

    • It's an Android TV dongle.

      The Chromecast and Ultra were always waiting for a 2nd device to send the stream, ie a Phone, Tablet or PC to connect with the CC dongle.

      Now it's all in one with a remote,

      or HDMI CEC sync for the remote ( if the TV is new enough to have that… It's probably new enough to already have chromecast built in already)

      • Are you certain? This is in the terms.

        Chromecast with Google TV requires a TV with an HDMI port, a Wi-Fi network, a Google Account, a nearby electrical socket and a compatible mobile device.

        It also makes no mention of storage size on the device, that I can see?

        • You need an mobile device, android or iOS phone to set it up. Has about 4GB space inbuilt to download and install apps. Because it’s USB C, you can plug in an USB C hub and get Ethernet, USB ports for external HDD’s, just make sure you have a powerful USB C power supply. The device leaked about a week ago, people in US have purchased and tested all the features, just check out Reddit to learn about it.

    • They plan to Rename Android TV to Google TV
      Same thing, New Name .

  • Would it matter if google home is my account, and Netflix is under the wife’s email and name?

    Also, is there a Foxtel app? (Rather the chromecasting?)

    I was looking at a Foxtel now box for around $59

    • No.

      Yes - but it doesn't work with ALL Google TV devices. I'm guessing it would on this one, but I'm just guessing - the device is too new to have feedback.

      Foxtel Now box is very limiting - full Google TV experience - do whatever you want with all the apps available for Google TV.

    • I don't see why it matters. The logins are not integrated.

      Foxtel APP if not official should be able to be sideloaded, but wait for someone to confirm.

    • Nope, use my missus Netflix on my Nexus Player and Shield.

  • Was probably going to buy one anyway, so for ~$40 nett after Netflix credit which I also spend anyway, no brainer

    "Delivered by 6–9 Nov" though…

    Interesting that the normal one with no Netflix for $99 is out of stock (edit: white only in stock for both variants)

  • It shows Out of Stock now. OP please update

  • So I've got an old Chromecast and cast from my phone. Does this having a remote and interface mean you don't need the cast (like Apple TV)? If not, then isn't your phone/tablet the control anyways?

    • It's actually Android TV which has Chromecast built in. So allows you to run apps directly on the device rather than just cast to them.

      Having a remote is much nicer than getting your phone, unlocking, re-opening app etc.

      • What's the storage size? Can't see any mention of it.

        • Only 8GB total before including OS etc. I'm pretty sure I saw reported. About 4GB free.

          It's not meant for storing anything but does mean installing apps could be limiting, particularly something like Kodi which tends to create a large cache of thumbnails etc. I had to add a USB stick to my Mibox or Kodi would just fill everything - and I don't even use Kodi all that much.
