Chromecast lands in the UK: £30 for Google’s TV stick

Chromecast has finally landed in the UK. The price for Google’s streaming stuff to your TV stick? £30. 

The HDMI dongle that lets you cast content stored on your phone or stream Netflix titles – and now BBC iPlayer too – has been available to ship over from the US since launch.  

While it’s now easier to get hold of, the price is a slight mark up from what you’d pay in the States – $35 currently just over £21 – an increase of seven quid on how the American price converts pre-sales tax. Rip Off Britain strikes yet again, but at the cost of a couple of pints.
