Savvy consumers can get a brand new Google Chromecast streaming stick, which normally retails at $35, for only $9, along with a 3-month subscription to new video streaming service Ownzones.
If you've been searching for a great deal on a streaming video player, look no further. A special promotion offered by Ownzones will get you a brand new Chromecast along with a three-month subscription to one of the Ownzones channels for just $8.97. At that price, a comparison with Chromecast competitors like Amazon's Fire Stick, Roku's Streaming Stick, and even Apple TV blows the others out of the water.
Though all the different streaming services have their merits, compared at full price, choosing the Chromecast over the others at $9 is a no-brainer. Popular streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu and HBO Go are all available through Chromecast, and though it doesn't come with a dedicated remote like some of its competitors, Chromecast can be controlled via computer, tablet and smartphone.
Ownzones is offering this great deal in order to promote its new movie streaming services. All you have to do is sign up for a three-month subscription to one of two movie channels they offer, and you get a free Google Chromecast shipped to your door. The appeal of the channels is limited, so assuming you don't actually use the service, you'll be effectively receiving the Google Chromecast for under $9. And if you happen to be into scary B-movies or gangster flicks, that's all the better, because your nine bucks also entitles you to use the Ownzones video streaming for three months, either on your new Chromecast or computer.
Better yet, if you sign up for both the Warriors & Gangsters and Monsters & Nightmares channels at $9 each, you can actually get two free Chromecasts. Plus, shipping is free and the offer is good through May 31, 2015 — a rather large window.
Although the terms and conditions state that the Chromecast will be shipped within 45 days, the company claims they are being sent out immediately upon sign-up, and consumers in online forums have confirmed this. Just make sure you cancel your subscription after the initial three months if you don't plan to use it so your credit card is not charged for a subscription renewal.
