The NVIDIA SHIELD TV went up for sale this past week, and it brings the Google Assistant to the big screen. Many have already purchased the NVIDIA SHIELD TV, and there are some great accessories that you'll want to pick up to go along with the new SHIELD TV. We've rounded up the best accessories available, and they are listed below.
AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI Cable
This HDMI cable from AmazonBasics is a 6-foot long cable and will make it easier to connect your SHIELD TV to your actual TV, so that you can take advantage of all of the games and apps that are available on Android TV – the platform that the NVIDIA SHIELD TV runs on. AmazonBasics also offers this HDMI cable in 3-feet, 10-feet and 15-feet long versions.
NVIDIA SHIELD TV Stand
The NVIDIA SHIELD TV is already a pretty sleek looking set top box, but with this stand, it looks even sleeker. This is the official NVIDIA SHIELD TV stand that NVIDIA has created for the SHIELD TV. So not only does it look good, but it also works with the SHIELD TV without hindering its performance.
NVIDIA SHIELD Controller
Now, the NVIDIA SHIELD TV does come with the controller bundled with the set-top box (as well as the remote), but you can still pick up a second controller to use with your SHIELD TV. This is great for those times that you want to play a multiplayer game. This is the newest NVIDIA SHIELD controller that came out with the new SHIELD TV in 2017.
Sony XBR55X700D 55-Inch HDR 4K Ultra HD TV
One of the big new features of the new SHIELD TV is the fact that it supports HDR and 4K. So you can get an even better looking picture on your TV from the SHIELD TV. Of course, you need a TV that supports HDR, and this one here from Sony does just that. It's a 55-inch 4K HDR TV, and it's going to provide you with a great looking picture.
Samsung UN65KS8000 65-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV
This is another TV that supports HDR and is a 4K TV, this time from Samsung. This is their latest TV, and it's a 65-incher so it's going to look fantastic in your entertainment setup. With the NVIDIA SHIELD TV supporting 4K HDR content, you'll be able to watch movies and TV shows from Amazon, Netflix and other providers with HDR 10 support.
SanDisk Ultra Fit 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive
If you are looking for more storage on your NVIDIA SHIELD TV, you'll have to check out this flash drive, since they did remove the SD card slot in the second-generation SHIELD TV. The SanDisk Ultra Fit is a 128GB USB 3.0 flash drive which will add plenty of storage for you to add more games and apps to your set-top box.
HDMI Male to 2 HDMI Female 1 in 2 out Splitter Cable Adapter
Some TV's just don't have enough HDMI ports, luckily this splitter will help you out and give you enough space to use your brand new NVIDIA SHIELD TV. You'll still need a HDMI cable though to plug it in, but this will take your one HDMI port and effectively turn it into two HDMI ports.
SecurOmax Braided HDMI Cable 6ft
If you need a HDMI cable that is a bit stronger than the one that we listed above, then this is definitely one to check out. This is a braided cable, so it can withstand being bent a bit more than a traditional cable. This one is also about 6-feet long, making it a great one for just about any setup, whether your TV is close to your SHIELD TV or somewhat far away.
VIZIO SmartCast E-Series E55u-D2 55" 4K Ultra HD TV
VIZIO's E-Series TV's are some of the most popular TV's around. And that's because they offer a pretty great looking picture, without having to spend a boat load of cash on a new TV. This is their 55-inch 4K Ultra HD TV. There's no HDR support here, but it does support 4K so that content that is available in 4K will appear in 4K for you.
LG Electronics 43-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV
This is the smallest TV on the list, so it's likely not the best for an entertainment center, but it is great for a smaller room, perhaps a bedroom. This TV from LG is a 43-inch 4K TV which is going to give you an incredible picture, thanks to it being an LED. It is a smart TV, but with the NVIDIA SHIELD TV, you'll likely never use its "smart" features.
