Google is no longer including three free months of Netflix with Chromecast purchases. Just one day after introducing its minuscule streaming device, Google has quickly ended the promotion that made Chromecast's already cheap $35 price seem like even more of a bargain. "Due to overwhelming demand for Chromecast devices since launch, the 3-month Netflix promotion (which was available in limited quantities) is no longer available," the company told The Los Angeles Times in a statement. Both new and existing Netflix customers could redeem the three-month subscription code that was included with early purchases. Presumably existing orders will receive the bonus as promised, but the Netflix offer has already been wiped off of the Chromecast product page at Google Play.
