Google Stadia Pro launches November 19

Paid subscription streaming service to debut next month as Founder's Edition bundles begin shipping; free Stadia Base to follow next year

Google is almost ready to roll out its Stadia streaming service. The company today announced that the Stadia Pro subscription version of the service will go live at 9 a.m. PST / 6 p.m. CET on November 19.

Founder's Edition bundles (which include a Stadia controller, ChromeCast Ultra, three months of Pro and a buddy pass to give to a friend) should begin arriving for customers the same day on a first-preordered, first-shipped basis.

Initially, Stadia Pro will only be accessible to those who ordered the Founder's Edition or Premiere Edition (a replacement offering once Founder's Editions are sold out). The stand-alone version of the Stadia Pro subscription will be available at a later date. The free version of the service, Stadia Base, is expected to launch next year.
