Chromecast comes to Brazil at a steep price

Google's Chromecast is now available in Brazil, but customers will have to pay a much higher price for the device than in other parts of the world. While other countries can get the dongle at a relatively low price, like $35 in the U.S., £30 in the U.K, Brazilian customers will have to shell out, R$199, or around $88. This is par for the course in Brazil, where many imports face heavy taxation.

Brazilian Chromecast owners will be able to watch Netflix, YouTube, their Google Play movies, and more. There don't seem to be any Brazil-specific apps or services. Chromecast is now available in 19 countries around the world, and customers in Brazil can order it directly from Google right now.
