@Celticdamian :

Not really at this moment in time.  Options currently available are:

  1. Buy Premium Edition (CCU and Controller)
  2. Obtain a Buddy Pass from someone that purchased the Founders Edition and has an unused Buddy Pass
  3. Go for a BT Broadband deal as they are offering a Premium Edition in their eligible broadband packages although Stadia will consume bandwidth on some of those packages for sure...

Else wait until the Base Edition is released in 2020, although we have no news as to when that will be made available yet in 2020.

Alternatively, buy a Premium Edition, create your account and then once you're up and running on Stadia return the unopened package for a refund within the 15 day GoogleStore policy limits etc., policy is here: https://support.google.com/store/answer/2411741?hl=en-GB .

Your account will switch to what is in effect a base edition (even though it isn't available currently) and you can then run that account on your existing CCU hardware and subscribe to Pro again.  

Kudos appreciated if deserved.

Cheers buddy thanks for reply. I checked the firmware on my ultra so it appears it wouldn't run stadia anyway. Will have to get the £119 edition then lol

@Celticdamian : No problem, but the CCU firmware can be upgraded to a compatible version.  So, you could still avoid keeping a Premium Edition if you choose not to.  Of course you would still need to purchase a Stadia controller if you wanted to play on the CCU, but that is still cheaper than buying the Premium Edition.

Good luck.
