NVIDIA SHIELD TV is just $119 on Amazon ($60 off)

Monday, November 26th, 2018

These days, the only Android TV worth purchasing is NVIDIA's SHIELD TV. Earlier this month, we saw this box discounted to $140 on Amazon, but it's been even further discounted for Cyber Monday. It's temporarily out of stock, but Amazon is currently offering the SHIELD TV for just $118.99.

The SHIELD TV has a pretty long list of features to its name. Of course, it can do everything a normal Android TV box can do, but it can also act as a Plex server, a Samsung SmartThings Hub, and even a gaming console with NVIDIA's GeForce Now cloud gaming service.

Nvidia is testing a Shield TV app with virtual remote, mousepad, and keyboard [APK Download]

Wednesday, August 15th, 2018

Probably the only Android TV box worth consistent attention is the Nvidia Shield TV, which does just about everything the right way. It comes with a handy physical remote, but still, some users have called for a mobile app. Nvidia is finally giving them what they want.

The Shield TV app is currently labeled 'unreleased' and is being tested by Nvidia ahead of a formal unveiling. It includes several virtual tools, such as remote buttons, a mousepad, and a keyboard.

NVIDIA Shield TV Smart Home Edition comes with a SmartThings Link hub for $219.99 ($1 more than if bought separately)

Tuesday, August 14th, 2018

Despite how much I love my Shield TV and how often we use it in my household for streaming videos and playing games, I can't help but scratch my head a little at what NVIDIA is doing here. The company is rehashing its streaming box for the umpteenth time with another bundle and no price incentive to make anyone want to jump on board.

The new 2017 Shield TV, which was more or less a rehashed version of the older one, already comes in three versions: a $299 Pro with 500GB of storage and some hardware enhancements, a $179 16GB version with just the remote, and a $199 16GB with the remote and the game controller.

NVIDIA halts SHIELD TV’s Oreo update because of “a couple of issues”

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

NVIDIA started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update to its SHIELD TV last week, and with it came the new launcher, the latest security updates, plenty of improvements, but also "a couple of issues." That's why NVIDIA is halting the update until it can fix things and resume the rollout.

The news was announced by a tech support rep on the GeForce forums. Here is his statement:

Hi All

We’ve uncovered a couple issues thanks to feedback from our preview program that we’d like to fix prior to rolling out SHIELD TV Experience Upgrade 7.0 to more users.

SHIELD TV gets new Assistant capabilities, including broadcasting and security camera streaming

Thursday, January 25th, 2018

Since the Nvidia SHIELD TV added Google Assistant support last year, it's been slowly catching up with other Assistant-enabled devices by adding new functionality. It looks like a couple more capabilities are now available. At least we think so, as Assistant features across different devices are so inconsistent that it's sometimes hard to tell what's new and what's not.

According to Nvidia, broadcasting messages and the ability to summon your security camera stream on your TV via the Assistant are both new additions.

Android TV streaming boxes: an uneasy start and apparent death

Sunday, January 21st, 2018

Android TV is very much alive, as was made abundantly clear by the plethora of new Android TV powered televisions with Google Assistant capability shown off at CES 2018. Streaming boxes powered by Android TV, however, are conspicuously missing—the last Android TV set-top box to be released in the United States was the Xiaomi Mi Box in October 2016.

Apple TV and Amazon's Fire TV products both received hardware refreshes last September, while Roku products received hardware refreshes in October.
