The Nvidia Shield TV is probably the best Android TV box in the world, offering high-end hardware and plenty of gaming goodness. Toss in a constant stream of meaningful updates over three years, and it’s clear we’ve got a standout streaming box.
Hoping to get your hands on a discounted device? Well, Amazon U.K. has you covered for a starting price of just 129.99 pounds (~$167), down from 179.99 pounds. This doesn’t include the Shield gamepad, however, so you’ll have to make do with the included TV remote.
You can also grab a Shield TV bundle with a controller for 149.99 pounds (~$192), down from 189.99 pounds. In other words, you’re essentially paying 20 pounds for a gamepad that usually retails for over 60 pounds.
All in all, you’re getting a pretty compelling package for the price. The Shield TV supports 4K, HDR, 120Hz playback, Google Assistant, and Amazon Alexa. The best thing about the Android box might be its gaming support though, allowing you to use the GeForce Now streaming service.
Don’t care for game streaming? Then Nvidia has you covered with a slew of console/PC ports, ranging from Tomb Raider and War Thunder to Half Life 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
