They say that there is no such thing as a free lunch in this world, and perhaps they are right. But when it comes to three months of free Netflix, you might be on to something here. It was announced at Google’s Chromecast reveal a couple of days back that the $35 media streaming dongle would be accompanied by three free months of access to Netflix with each purchase. Well, Amazon’s sold out on the Chromecast, with Google Play pushing back its estimated ship date to sometime in the middle of August, and that can only mean one thing (after all, good as well as bad things tend to come in threes), that the three free months of access to Netflix? It is no longer available.
This was apparently “due to overwhelming demand,” at least that was what was mentioned in a statement which was sent to the LA Times. Netflix currently charges a $7.99 monthly fee for access to a huge library of movies and TV shows, meaning the promotion was worth $24, and if you were to perform some basic mathematical functions, it would have “reduced” the price of the Chromecast dongle to a mere $11 sans taxes or shipping charges which could apply, making it a real sweet deal.
