Google offering YouTube TV subscribers new Chromecast with Google TV for free
It sounds like Google is in a giving mood as we head toward the holidays. The search giant is apparently giving select YouTube TV subscribers a free Chromecast with Google TV.
The offer is being extended to longtime YouTube TV subscribers, according to Android Police. Unfortunately, that means you can’t sign up today and take advantage of the offer. An email being sent out to subscribers says the offer will expire on December 31.
“We wanted to say thanks and offer you, a longtime friend of YouTube TV, a new Chromecast with Google TV — on us,” the email from Google reads.

To qualify for the offer, you need to have been a YouTube TV subscriber since June 2018, with no pause or cancellation in your subscription. It’s a nice gesture right before the holidays, especially since Google recently raised the monthly price of YouTube TV.
The new Chromecast with Google TV was announced in September for $49 and is one of the best ways to stream content. In our review, we said the dongle is the perfect gateway to live TV streaming.
One of the best things about the new Chromecast with Google TV is how easy it is to use, thanks in part to the remote and revamped interface. Google TV does a nice job of consolidating content from your Google Play library and various supported subscriptions, including Disney+, Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video.
