Apparently you can get 3 months free Now TV sub for your Chromecast. I can't check it as my Chromecast is at home.

You can get all the other things on that page too, like the X-Men movie and Now TV.

Watch these free videos and get a chromecast.

Google just actualised Freemium coin gathering.

Just tried to redeem it for both our Chromecasts and each one says that the code entered is invalid. Must be a one per Google account thing rather than per Chromecast.

If Mimi has a Play account it might work on that?

Nope. I redeemed both of mine against the same account

Mystery solved. Apparently my Google Wallet account has been suspended so they can protect me against fraud (what?)

All I have to do is send them a copy of my passport or other government issued ID and they'll unlock it for me. For the sake of a fiver I'll say no thanks.

Would dust in the hdmi port cause the chromecast picture to come and go and often fill about half or a third of the screen with a snowstorm?


Buying a new telly sorted this problem, by the way.

Pretty extreme way to get dust out of the HDMI port, I'd have probably just given it a blow.

I've heard that's the way that you solve many problems, Craster.

Well, she wants to watch Scandal when I want to play ps4 and the shop was out of ipad air 2's. So I saved loaDs.

I have bought a Roku 2 to replace the Nexus Player since the Nexus *still* doesn't have iPlayer, more 4, demand 5 or Amazon prime. The Roku, while lacking a certain level of polish, does all of those *and* Netflix, Google movies and Plex.

Plus, it has wired Ethernet and an IR sensor, meaning it works with the Logitech harmony without fuss.

No kodi, though. Meh.

It's weird that it's been exactly one year *to the day* since I bought the Roku and it seems today is the day that I'm going to replace it with a Fire TV box.

Would anyone be interested in purchasing a Roku 2?

I've tricked my fire TV into thinking it's an Nvidia Shield, so I can now play dirt rally on the sofa. I am *really* bad at it
