Where To Buy Chromecast 2 In Australia

Google's latest version of the Chromecast media streaming device is finally available in Australia. Hurrah! From today, you can pick it up from a range of Aussie retailers, including Jb Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman for $59.

The latest version of Chromecast was previously only available as a grey import from Kogan and other online suppliers. Today, it is finally being sold by retailers in Australia. You can pick it up for $59 from JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman, Bing Lee, The Good Guys or Google's online store.

$59 might seem like a pretty steep markup compared to the US price of $35, but once you factor in US tax and currency conversion, the RRP actually isn't too bad. You're basically being slugged with a $5 premium, which we think is wearable.

The Chromecast 2 adds a range of performance-enhancing features, including a speedier interface, 802.11ac support and triple-antenna Wi-Fi that can switch between 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands on dual-band networks. It also sports a more compact "hockey puck" design that can be tucked away from sight.

The new Chromecast comes in three colours: black, red and yellow although it seems only the black is available at the moment. (Google's online store will reportedly be selling the other colours from this Friday.)

    Picking up my Chromecast Audio today from JB w00t w00t!

    Going to grab one today, been waiting for these to drop in Australia for a while since the announcement but I'm glad they finally have so I feel comfortable picking a Chromecast up/

    Don't mean to be the stickler but the chromecast 2 is 58 on Harvey Norman not 59? Although HN is 7.95 delivery while good guys is only 5 dollar delivery, which makes HN cheaper overall. ALTHOUGH good guys have a price match guarantee here http://www.thegoodguys.com.au/30-day-price-guarantee so you could possibly actually get 120 percent of your money back if it works?

    Ughh meant to say goodguys is cheaper overall. My Bad (Not sure if mod can merge?)
