Like Amazon’s Fire TV Stick, the Chromecast is an inexpensive way to make any TV (or even a computer monitor) smart.
The only snag with the original Chromecast was that you had to use your phone as a remote control. But the Chromecast with Google TV fixes that and includes a remote control and a proper interface on your TV, just like a Fire Stick.
But don’t take too long deciding if it’s the one for you: this Amazon Prime Day deal ends at midnight and is the best price we’ve seen.
It may not look it at first glance: you can get a Chromecast with Google TV for £39.99 from just about every big-name retailer in the UK at the moment including John Lewis, Currys and Argos.
The difference is that Amazon is offering an extra £10 voucher – simply tick the box to apply it – which brings the price down from £59.99 to just £29.98.
There are two catches: one is that you have to be a Prime member to get Amazon’s deal price and the second is that delivery isn’t as swift as usual: it won’t be until 2 August. (If you’re not an Amazon Prime subscriber, you can get a free 30-day trial.)
