If you want to instantly upgrade any TV to a smart TV, the Chromecast is one of the easiest options. This small device lets you add streaming features from services like Netflix or Hulu to your current TV by plugging it into the back of your TV via an HDMI port. Chromecasts are already affordable, so they don’t often go on sale, but to help you save some cash and find the best Chromecast deals, we’ve rounded up some of the best offers available below.
Google Chromecast was the original smart TV platform and gave way to a lot of options you see today, such as the Apple TV. While it may be a little bit dated at this point, it is still a great little device that can stream at 1080p, which is great if you haven’t picked up a 4K TV deal and are dealing with an old-school “dumb” TV. Even better, its age has made it quite cheap, even though the software inside of it is relatively modern, having all the modern streaming apps like Disney+ and HBO Max available. While it doesn’t have a remote, which is a bit of a letdown given most modern smart TV platforms do, you can still control it through your phone, so it’s not a huge loss, and the lack of a remote does also help keep the price down.
One of the biggest competitors of Google is Apple, and if you’ve been looking through some Apple TV deals, you may be leaning toward getting one of those instead. Well, don’t rule out Google just yet. The Chromecast with Google TV is their answer to the Apple TV. You just plug the Chromecast into the HDMI port on your TV and start streaming. It supports HDR and resolutions up to 1080p. Connect it to your other Google smart home accessories like the Nest and Nest Cam to see your security camera on your TV.
