One of this year's hottest gifts is a streaming media player, and there's a good reason for their popularity. Streaming media player boxes, like Roku and Apple TV, or streaming sticks like Amazon Fire TV Stick and Google Chromecast, are inexpensive and they enrich your TV viewing experience.
Chromecast is already one of the most affordable streaming TV gadgets on the market, but for the holidays, its giving you more bang for your buck.
When you buy a Chromecast by January 2, you can get $20 in Google Play credits for cast TV shows, movies, music and more with Google Play. Even better, buy the Chromecast at Best Buy, which has an offer for $5 off Chromecast right now.
But that's not the only offer. You can also use your newly-purchased Chromecast to redeem one free month of YouTube Red, YouTube's ad-free option, as well as 90 days of free, unlimited access to music on Google Play, and there's also a free movie rental to take advantage of.
With Chromecast, you can stream videos, music, slideshows and more to your television via your smartphone, tablet or laptop. All you have to do is plug the Chromecast into the back of your TV through the HDMI connector port and link it up to your gadget with the Chromecast app through a secure Wi-Fi connection.
You don't even need a remote! You can control everything from your smartphone, tablet or laptop. Chromecast works with both the Apple and Android platforms so you don't need to go running to the store to pick up any more gear.
With so many choices for streaming media players out there, picking the right one can be tough. How do you know which one is best for you? Use the Komando.com Streaming Media Chart to help you decide if the Chromecast is right for you or not.
