In the UK, it costs £30 and is available from Google Play, Amazon, Currys and PC World – those latter two got a bit ahead of themselves and actually put it up for sale ahead of launch.

It doesn’t just work with Android tablets and smartphones either, it can also be used with iOS devices via the Chromecast app, with Chrome for Mac or Windows, or using a Chromebook. For a list of supported services, check outthis list.
