If you’re in the market for a new streaming player then it might be worth picking up a new Chromecast with Google TV HD considering the popular streaming dongle is now on sale for just $19.99.
The Chromecast with Google TV HD is the newest Chromecast from Google and a follow up to the older Chromecast with Google TV 4K. While the newer model is limited to just HD, the player normally retails for $29.99 making it one of the cheaper streaming devices around.
Right now, the Chromecast with Google TV HD is even cheaper than usual after Google slashed $10 off the price at the Google Store, bringing the total down to just $19.99. Matching a December 2022 price drop, $20 is a pretty good deal on what is a pretty good streaming player in our opinion.
For reference, not only has the price dropped at the Google Store, but you can also save $10 on the cost when purchasing at Best Buy, Target, and other retailers. According to Target, the $19.99 price is only good until Saturday. Whether that’s also the case for the other retailers is unknown but that’s something to keep in mind.
The timing of this temporary price drop is interesting considering Walmart is about to open sales on its latest streaming player, the Onn Google TV 4K Streaming Box. Priced at just $20, Walmart’s new streaming player not only runs on Google TV but it is also a 4K streaming player.
It is unclear if Google has dropped the price to help sales during the launch of Walmart’s new player, but it is a possibility. Whether you should buy the Onn Google TV 4K Streaming Box over the Chromecast with Google TV HD is an interesting question, as both come with their own selling strengths and weaknesses.
For those wondering, Google has yet to drop the price of its Chromecast with Google TV 4K, which is still priced at $49.99.
