Lightning deal: Nvidia Shield TV is $40 off for a limited time | Apps & Software
If you’re in the market for a 4K HDR media streamer, consider the Nvidia Shield TV. After all, it’s deeply discounted for Prime Day 2018.
The device, which is powered by Nvidia’s Tegra X1 SoC and runs Google’s Android TV, is now on sale in the US for $139. It normally costs $179. This is a Lightning deal that will last five hours or until all the units are claimed. You can also get in the UK for £135 here.
This particular model features 16GB of onboard storage and comes with a voice remote and gaming controller. It offers all the usual streaming apps, like Hulu and Netflix, but it also doubles as a Google Assistant-compatible device, giving you control over your smart home.
You can also get a version with the game controller, but still packing a remote control, in the UK for £150.
You can use Shield TV to control many experiences with just the sound of your voice. Dim your lights, stream Netflix to your TV, shuffle your favourite playlist, and more. Other features include support for the add-on Samsung SmartThings USB dongle, which gives you even more control over smart devices, and it supports GeForce Now on-demand cloud gaming for streaming of roughly 225 AAA PC games to your TV.
