TechRadar Deals: The best Chromecast deals for Black Friday 2015

The Google Chromecast is one of the most useful and innovative gadgets of the last few years. And if you’re looking to pick one up for the cheapest possible price, you’ve come to the right place!

The Chromecast is not only super functional, useful and easy to use but it’s also dazzlingly cheap – what’s not to like?

If you’re unsure what Chromecast is, it’s a wifi-connected HDMI dongle that you plug directly into your TV. From there you can use your smartphone or tablet to ‘throw’ video at your TV over wifi, whether it be Netflix movies, live football matches from the major broadcasters or simply just a funny YouTube video sent to you by ‘that’ friend who always sends you ‘funny’ YouTube videos.

There are three different models of Chromecast, so on this page we’ll find you the best prices on each individual one and explain how they differ.

What is a good Chromecast deal?

This one’s easy. The standard price for a Chromecast is $ 35 in the USA and £30 in the UK. You should never, ever pay more than that because you can always find one for that price.

However, at certain times of the year, prices tumble. On Black Friday last year, for example, we saw Chromecasts going for under $ 20 in the US, while the UK’s best price was £18 throughout November. That’s a hefty discount on an already super cheap, amazing gadget.

Honestly, we would be more than happy to pay the regular $ 35/£30 asking price for Chromecast because it’s such great value. But equally, you should always make sure you’re getting the best price!

1. Original Chromecast deals

The original Chromecast came out in 2013 and has the capability to stream video and music to TVs, monitors and any other HDMI-ready display. This model has recently been replaced by the Chromecast 2 so while stocks last you might be able to pick one up cheap.

2. Chromecast 2 deals

The Chromecast 2, or ‘new Chromecast’ as it’s also known, is very similar to the 2013 Chromecast. Sure, it looks a little different. And it’s got slightly faster network performance and a few other tweaks such as coming with a dangly cable instead of as a rigid stick. But essentially the same product in a different shape – that’s why the prices are basically the same. If you can find one for the same price, get this new one.

3. Chromecast Audio deals

While it doesn’t offer true multi-room streaming at the moment (fingers crossed that comes soon), this easy-to-use and affordable device modernizes any trusty set of wired speakers you already own with wireless capabilities. In doing so, it also opens them up to features that will grow and get even better over time. Got an old set of speakers or an ancient iPod dock? Turn it into a wireless speaker with Chromecast Audio!
