Google One subscribers get 10% back as store credit...

Buying this direct is the deal to beat. I'm waiting for CM to see if I can find this below Google's direct price but if you can't wait until Monday this is the best I've seen.

remember these need to be plugged in to stream 4k. it won't with your tvs usb, which is such a scam. needs to be advertised on the box as suck.
Why would you think this would work solely from a USB port, or not at all?

Via their description:
"Chromecast, Chromecast Ultra, Chromecast Audio require: a TV with an HDMI port, a Wi-Fi network and a compatible (Android, iOS, Windows or Mac OS) computer or mobile device."

I believe he means the power provided through a TV's USB port (usually 5v @ 1A) will be insufficient and result in reduced performance. You'll need to plug it in using their wall wart which may mean running another cord.

That said I don't think they need to advertise that on the box. Some TVs may spec their USB ports to supply enough power. It has nothing to do with the Chromecast.

Do I still need a Chromecast Ultra if I have a PS4 Pro, Xbox One X, and Roku Ultra (2019)?

Concerned about streaming YouTube Premium in 4k and Google Play movies in 4k.

I have an xbox one x, which I use for netflix, etc. I wanted this for an easy way to mirror my computer screen or phone. It works pretty well and was simple to set up.

I streamed videos in 4k through wifi to test it and it did fine. There is a ethernet port on it too.

This looks better than the old version of chromecast I had before.
