NVIDIA is discounting the SHIELD TV ahead of Prime Day, bringing the higher-end model, which comes with the remote and controller, down to just $179. That's good for $20 off of its regular price and also brings it back down to its all-time low. The SHIELD TV doesn't typically drop in price, so it's good to see it drop just ahead of Prime Day. This deal is going to run all week long as well, starting today, through Saturday July 21.
The NVIDIA SHIELD TV is really the only option for an Android TV set-top box, but it is also a gaming console. With Android TV, you're going to get all of the great apps that you'd expect on Android. That includes YouTube, Google Play Movies & TV, Netflix, Hulu, Sling TV and many other apps. It's a great set-top box for those that are looking to cut the cord and get rid of cable, because there are so many options for watching content without the cable box. Now on the gaming side, the SHIELD TV is one of the best gaming consoles out there. Since it does support 4K and HDR, the SHIELD TV doesn't just provide impressive performance for games, but also rather impressive graphics – as long as your TV supports it. There are a slew of games available as well as NVIDIA's GeForce system.
This is also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap (usually $3.99) next-day shipping if you need it extra fast. If you are not an Amazon Prime member yet, you can sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime. You'll get 30 days free (if you're a student, you get 6 months), and then it's $119/year (or $59/year for students). Prime members do get a whole lot more than just free shipping though, so be sure to check out the full benefits.
