chromecast hands-on

After a similar promotion for new customers in October, YouTube TV is giving a free Chromecast with Google TV to existing ones this holiday season.

The “[Special thanks] Enjoy a Chromecast with Google TV, on us” email was sent out to current subscribers (member or family group manager) that have not “paused or canceled from June 1, 2018, through December 10, 2020” [Update]. Additionally, you’re ineligible if the separate “YouTube TV discounted price offered for Chromecast purchasers” has been redeemed.

We wanted to say thanks and offer you, a longtime friend of YouTube TV, a new Chromecast with Google TV — on us.

Click the button below to get a new Chromecast with Google TV (a $49.99 value) in the color Snow. Please be sure to claim this gift soon because it’s only available through December 31.*

With the new Chromecast, you can level up your YouTube TV experience with features like a homepage that makes YouTube TV recommendations based on shows you like, as well as a voice remote to quickly jump to your favorites.

Additional fine print notes that “this offer is exclusively yours to enjoy and isn’t eligible if forwarded.” However, since the “Claim your offer” process opens the Google Store, you can just enter a different address at the shipping stage.

Be sure to claim the free Chromecast by December 31, with YouTube TV only letting users get the Snow (white) variant. It comes as the cord-cutting service is closely integrated with the new Google TV experience and its “Live” tab. At last count, YouTube TV now has 3 million paid subscribers.
