UK retailers cut Chromecast price by a third
The Google Chromecast has dropped in price in the United Kingdom. The streaming dongle was previously available for £30 ($50), though The Next Web notes multiple retailers in the country have simultaneously slashed the cost to £20 ($33) and in some cases £18 ($30), including store chains Tesco and Currys PC World. The Google Play listing for the device still lists the original price, though the collective price drop by other Chromecast sellers suggests this is more of a permanent change than a time-limited deal.
