Yes, although, they may ask you for a US zip code (they did me) and just look one up on google maps and add it, I actually used the first 5 digits of my Singapore postcode and it was accepted. Before that, I tried 90210, like many other children of the 80's I guess this is one that most non-US dwellers know, but, seemingly they didn't like it!

I used my SG bank issued AmEx.

You can always use this address:

1 Infinite Loop
Cupertino, CA. 95014
USA

It'll check out and pass all address checks. It's quite appropriate since it's for Apple TV.

A friend of mine suggested a Google USB thumbstick device that you can stick in your TV, is anyone using that?

It's a lot more limited than an Apple TV, as you must tie it to a computer for almost everything (Where as an AppleTV has most of those services built right into the device). Unless the cost difference between the two will break your budget, I'd suggest the AppleTV. It does a lot more than the Chromcast.

If you actually want a Chromcast in Singapore, PM me as I have one new in the box I'm looking to sell.

I bought my Chromecast for S$45! Beware Qoo10 and their rip-off price

Why not share where you bought it? Did you actually get it in Singapore? If you paid S$45 but no one else here can take advantage of the deal without your 'connections' that's not really a fair comparison. It's $35 USD in the US, but that doesn't include the costs of shipping or GST that you'd have to pay unless you happen to have a buddy toss one in a suitcase for you on a trip.

S$63 from a local ebay seller with good record
http://www.ebay.com.sg/itm/GOOGLE-CHROM ... 51b53af9b3

This actually indicates that S$45 including shipment should be possible but not necessary in Singapore.

Hi zzm9980, thanks for the offer. I'll ask my partner if we'd like to get one, and reply to you. Don't hold on to it for me though..
