Contest: We Have 5 Chromecasts to Give Away!

chromecast contest

So, I’m not exactly sure why there are five unopened Chromecast devices sitting on my desk, but I do know that they need to go away.  And that means you have a chance to win one. Well, five of you have a chance to win one since there are that many sitting here.

Even though the price shock and impulse buy-worthiness of the Chromecast has disappeared a bit since launch, it’s still one of our favorite new tech products of 2013. The potential is here, we just need Google to open it all up. This is your chance to get in on that potential without spending a dime. 

As always, the contest is incredibly simple thanks to this little contest app called Rafflecopter. We’ve given you four different ways to enter using the form below. Don’t feel like you have to do all of them, but the more you do, the better your chances of winning. Ready?


Prizes: 5 (five) Chromecasts for 5 different winners.

    For me it has to be BBC iPlayer and 4OD (Both UK only) that I’d like to see get Chromecast support. These would make me very happy :o)

    As a bonus, if the Android gallery itself somehow supported chromecast for biewign photos and videos, that’d be even more awesome!

  • Chris

    It makes owning DVD players a very obsolete object. I used to use a dedicated laptop plugged into my TV to run BlueRay, DVD and Internet Streaming videos. I wish this would have came out about 3 years ago to save me spending $700 on a media laptop and the bluetooth keyboards to make it wireless. But my daughter doesn’t complain…she got a newish laptop upgrade early. So on behalf of my daughter…thank you Google.

  • Shaun O’Toole
