Update: This contest is now over. We are happy to announce that Damon Rose has taken home all the Chromecast brings. NO worries if this isn’t you as we currently have two TELUS HTC One M8’s up for grabs.

Fancy a Chromecast? Google officially made this HDMI dongle available to Canadians and it allows you to easily stream the web to your TV. We’ve covered Chromecast a number of times, including many of its available apps, but the good news is that we have one of these beauties for a giveaway!

To enter this contest all you have to do is either follow us and re-tweet this contest on Twitter (@mobilesyrup), “Like Us” on Facebook (Facebook.com/MobileSyrup), join us on Google+, or sign up for our e-newsletter. All current Facebook, Twitter and Google+ followers are automatically entered.

This contest closes on March 31st.
Good luck to all who enter!

    ohh was about to buy it but ill hold until winner is revealed

  • WebWhip

    A Chromecast costs 24 bucks on Ebay. So you want me to “like” you on the promise that “maybe” you’ll give me a 24 dollar toy? Makes you seem not only needy but cheap as well. I know a girl that will give me a lot more than that for 24 dollars.

      I don’t get why you’re complaining.. If you don’t like how they’re promoting themselves for you to enter a contest.. Don’t do it! This is not needy.. its marketing for a business. This is also not cheap, because they’ve done contests for phones and gadgets worth hundreds of dollars in the past.

    • wahwah

      Wah wah.

    • WebWhip

      I think for a couple extra bucks, she’ll even tell me that she loves me.

    • Blueliner

      I’m glad you’ve found the love of your life so easily then 🙂

    • WebWhip

      Hardly. What an odd concept you must have of true love.

  • Martin Chan

    Why not? Need to see if it’s useful.

  • IanDickson

    Cool. Wouldn’t buy one cuz I have a computer hooked up to my TV, but would be neat to have when I go out of town!
