As we reported yesterday, Google was including 3 free months of Netflix with the purchase of Google’s $35 Chromecast dongle. It sounded too good to be true and it was.
It is over just that quickly. Google is ending the promotion, telling The Los Angeles Times that it couldn’t keep offering it, “due to overwhelming demand.” So if you got in early, good job. Chances are you have Netflix already anyway.
Anyway, at $35 there really isn’t much to complain about with this device. You are getting a lot for the money. But how was this a surprise? Surely they knew at that price point that it would be insanely popular.
