Newegg Adds Chromecast to Its Extensive Portfolio of Consumer Electronics Products

Move Strengthens Relationship Between Newegg and Google

LOS ANGELES, CA -- Newegg today announced that it is selling Google's Chromecast on Newegg.com. Chromecast is an important addition to Newegg's vast array of digital entertainment devices, further cementing the company's position as the go-to destination for today's digital lifestyle products.

"Both early adopters and mainstream consumers are making new choices about when, where and how they view digital content," said Soren Mills, Chief Marketing Officer for Newegg North America. "Chromecast is an important catalyst for this paradigm shift and we're pleased to offer this innovative product to our customers."

Chromecast empowers people to enjoy online video and other web-based content on their home TV screens. Users interact with Chromecast in a familiar way -- similar to using apps and browsing the web on a smartphone, tablet or laptop -- so there's virtually no learning curve. Once users add Chromecast to their TVs, they simply connect to their local WiFi network and then cast videos and other content from their smartphone, tablet or laptop to their TV.

Chromecast's ubiquity makes it extremely appealing to the mass market and a great addition to Newegg.com. The device is cross-platform (Android, iOS, and Chrome for Windows and Mac) and supports many popular content-providers, including Netflix, YouTube and Google Play Movies. Anyone connected to the home's Wi-Fi can send content to Chromecast and the low price point makes it affordable to Chromecast-enabled TVs throughout the household.

Chromecast is currently available on Newegg.com for just $35.00. Join Newegg on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on important product news and to be kept abreast of upcoming contests and promotions.
