The Chromecast Ultra streams in 4K and is $20 off, down to just $50 at Best Buy. This is the big boy of the Chromecast family, able to stream in 4K and supporting both HDR and Dolby Vision.


If you don’t need 4K streaming, then you can save some cash and get the base Chromecast. This third-generation model is only $25 at Best Best this Black Friday, which is a saving of $10 on its usual price. You’ll get 1080p streaming in a compact package that’s easy to tuck behind your TV.

Alternative streaming devices

If a Chromecast doesn’t stir your fancy, there are plenty of other streaming devices on the market. In fact, we recently rounded up the best streaming devices of 2019.

First up, there’s the Amazon Fire TV Cube, which is down to $90 from its usual $120 price. As well as being a streaming device, this acts as a control for your whole entertainment system via its Alexa integration. You can turn on your TV, switch between apps, and switch to other inputs like gaming consoles, all via voice control. And it offers 4K and HDR playback, with an option for Ethernet cables for those who prefer the reliability of a wired connection.
