At least you get a free Chromecast
Google is trying out a new way to get the Google Stadia cloud gaming platform into more homes … by literally giving it away. Google is now giving free Stadia bundles to anyone who is subscribed to YouTube Premium.
YouTube Premium subscribers can now get a free Stadia Premiere Edition bundle, which normally costs $99.99. The bundle includes a Stadia controller, and also a Chromecast Ultra, which players can connect to their TV to play Stadia games there. Unfortunately, the bundle doesn’t come with a Stadia Pro subscription, which costs $9.99 a month, although new customers can get a 10-day free trial.
A YouTube Premium subscription costs $11.99 a month, but if you wanted to jump on board now in hopes of getting this Stadia bundle, it seems that won’t work. According to a screenshot from Twitter user RandomNoobYT, it looks like the deal only works if you were a subscriber before Nov. 6, which makes this a bonus only enjoyed by those who were already committed to YouTube Premium. This also means that you can’t just start up the YouTube Premium free trial and score yourself the Stadia deal.
Even if you don’t want this Stadia bundle, or don’t plan on keeping the service after the trial, you can still get the free Chromecast out of the deal, so it’s probably still worth redeeming if you’re eligible.
