Here’s Why Google Inc (GOOG) Really Dropped the Chromecast Netflix, Inc. (NFLX) Promo

In fact, I’m sure I’m not alone in kicking myself for not purchasing Chromecast yesterday when I had the chance. Sure, missing out on those three free months of Netflix will cost everybody an extra $24 from now on, but Chromecast’s price is already so low it invokes an unmistakable “What do I have to lose?” mentality, anyway.

And while Netflix is surely happy to go along for the ride, Google, for its part, has everything to gain from Chromecast, which serves to broaden consumers’ exposure to three of its flagship products and services in YouTube, Google Play, and the Chrome browser.

Well played, Google. Well played.
