Google is making the holiday season jollier by offering yet another freebie for Chromecast users. What now you ask? Two months of subscription for CBS All Access free!
That's right. Starting Saturday, Dec. 26, Google Chromecast owners will be able to sign-up for CBS All Access and get two months of viewing free. The Google offer is a limited period one and ends on Feb. 6, 2016. So if you've been thinking of purchasing a Chromecast Christmas offer from Google (or already have one) this is a great deal.
This is not the first promotional offer Google has offered consumers eyeing the new Chromecast. Earlier in December, Google took out a deal whereby one could purchase two Chromecasts for $55. A single Chromecast costs $35, so consumers would save $15 thanks to the promotion.
A few days later, Google followed it up with the $20 Play Store credit offer when one purchased a Chromecast. To avail the offer, consumers would simply need to purchase a new Chromecast and register it prior to January 2.
The current offer on the Chromecast is not bad if one were to subscribe to CBS All Access, they would need to shell out $5.99 and the free trial is only for a week. So Google is basically giving you freebies worth $11.98 for two months. You get access to all CBS programs and can watch shows such as "Big Bang Theory," "Supergirl," "The Good Wife," "Limitless" and more.
Sports buffs would do well to remember that CBS does not have the rights to stream any sporting event over CBS ALL Access.
If the Chromecast offer sounds too good to be true and you're wondering if there is a caveat, yes there is. The catch is that those interested in availing the free two-month CBS All Access offer will still be required to give their credit card details to activate the trial service.
So in the event you sign up and forget to cancel the subscription once the two-month free trial period runs out, you would have automatically been charged $5.99 for the next month as subscription fee.
The Chromecast offer is only applicable for select Chromecast devices and not all. Therefore, those who own the TV Chromecast will be eligible and not ones owning the Chromecast Audio.
