Why Google Drops Free Netflix-Chromecast Promotion?

Google's Free Netflix-Chromecast Promotion is Not Available Now

'Due to overwhelming demand', Google was forced to close its free Netflix-Chromecast promotion worth $24 a day after its launch. From now on the offer will be unavailable.

Google had launched its $35 Chromecast dongle just a day ago. The service allowed both audio, video streaming of YouTube, Netflix and others directly on TV via smartphones, tableta and laptops. Three month’s worth of free Netflix was given along with the dynamic device. But all that is no more. In part due to an astronomically high demand for the service, the deal had to be struck off the list. Many clever customers calculated the benefits that would accrue to them thanks to the lucrative deal. And so the package sold like hotcakes. Now Google has terminated the service barely 24 hours after its launch according to the Los Angeles Times. This has led to the device being readily available on the black market for as much as thrice its original cost price. Google doesn’t seem to have handled the whole operation very well.

Netflix consumers may avail the three month subscription code and even receive a bonus on their orders as promised. But one thing is for sure. The service is gone with the wind. The Chromecast dongle cost a nominal $35. The offer of three month’s worth of free Netflix sounded like a dream come true. And that is exactly what it turned out to be: a dream. The fact that the Netflix service cost $24 and Google had given a discount offer on it so that it was reduced to $11 had the customers in lengthy queues just to buy the promotional service. Now though those who purchased the offer in the nick of time are the lucky ones. The rest can only dream on!
