Direct from Google Play. They went in and out of stock quite a lot this morning, so I guess I got lucky.
It'll goto YouShop then myself.

Oh and not sure if I'll be able to redeem more than one free 3-months of Netflix if I buy more Chromecasts..?

I heard it was per order, and the offer was recently removed.

My order has a dispatch date of "Dispatches by 7 August 2013" and it doesn't meantime Netflix anywhere at all, but the deal was there when I purchased.

Here is an excerpt regarding whether you need the external USB power outlet or not:

The power adapter is an optional requirement. In fact, most modern TV's with HDMI 1.4 or higher spec are supported. The Chromecast can draw power from the HDMI port it's plugged into. If your TV doesn't support that, there's also a USB cable and power adapter included in the box. I have a 2012 LG LED and a 2013 Lenovo 27" Monitor with HDMI input and the ports power it with no cable.

If you currently use a VPN service for Google Play on your Nexus 7 will the Chromecast allow you to stream to your TV?

The device accesses the web independently, so I think you'll have to find another way.

I've just ordered 3 sticks. Curious about whether Netflix offer is still valid. Go Youshop.

Were they in stock when you ordered them?

I couldn't resist a stab at Sky:

I'm back in the US in a few weeks so hoping Best Buy will have some stock.

freitasm:
ir1141: I have ordered two from Amazon shipping to shipito.com. I have used shipito.com in the past to get my Nexus 4, had no issues at all. Unsure on how much it'll cost via shipito.com, can update if people want me too


I'd like to ask (as usual) for those ordering from Amazon to please use our Amazon Kindle order page to get to Amazon or go to the Google Chromecast on Amazon page (with our aff link)... That'd be a great help to us :)

And yes, ordering one now...



Thanx for the info.  I alway thought that this link was only for ordering the Kindle from Amazon and not other stuff  but if I can order   CDs, movies,   hardware etc   via that link then I will from now on..




Regards,

Old3eyes

freitasm do you also get anything from amazon.co.uk if we just change the .com to .co.uk ??

I often order movies, books etc from .co.uk as they have better shipping rates a lot of the time.
