NVIDIA SHIELD TV (2017) is launching today


Less than two weeks after making its debut at CES in Las Vegas, the new NVIDIA SHIELD TV is now available.

The NVIDIA SHIELD TV (2017) is officially launching today, with NVIDIA and several other retailers offering the 16GB for $199.99. A Pro model with 500GB of built-in storage is expected to launch later this month for $299.99.

In exchange for your hard-earned dollars, you’ll get a new NVIDIA SHIELD TV (2017), complete with Google Assistant, support for 4K HDR in Amazon Video, and more. Also included is a redesigned controller for your gaming needs and a voice remote.

You can order the new SHIELD TV (2017) directly from NVIDIA, and you can also snag an extra controller ($59.99), remote ($49.99), or a vertical stand ($19.99) for the device. Several other retailers are offering the new SHIELD TV, too, including Amazon, Fry’s, Best Buy, B&H Photo Video, and Newegg.

The original NVIDIA SHIELD TV (2015) is widely regarded as one of the best Android TV boxes on the market, and the new model looks like another solid offering. If you’ve got the original SHIELD TV, NVIDIA has announced that it’s pushing an update to that device that’ll include some features of the new model, but if you want to upgrade to the new hardware or just want a new Android TV box, you can now get a SHIELD TV (2017) of your very own.
