The NVIDIA SHIELD TV handles 4K HDR playback like a champ, has enough power to act as a smart home hub, and can even be used as a Plex server. If you’ve held off on getting the SHIELD, it’s now cheaper than ever.
Amazon and Best Buy both have the SHIELD TV down to $140 from the standard $180 price. Both retailers are also including a free 3rd Generation Echo Dot at that price, which ties in nicely with the SHIELD recently getting Alexa support.
Keep in mind, NVIDIA’s first party controller isn’t included in this bundle, so if you want to game you’ll need to either buy the $200 version of the SHIELD TV, or buy the controller separately.
The SHIELD TV runs Android TV, and it includes support for almost every streaming service you can think of. The same goes for digital purchases as well: you can buy movies through Google Play, or get them from Amazon Video, Vudu and others. The SHIELD’s remote includes a microphone, so you can search for apps, movies and more without dealing with the virtual keyboard.
We’re not sure how long this deal will last, so make sure to jump on it quickly—it’s a killer price for one of the best steaming boxes on the market.
