Amazon currently has the NVIDIA SHIELD TV on sale for just $179. That is for the model that includes both the remote and the controller – which is usually $199. This is the first time that the NVIDIA SHIELD TV has been on sale since Amazon Prime Day, and it also brings it back down to its all-time lowest price.
The NVIDIA SHIELD TV is an Android TV set-top box, which allows you to watch content from a slew of different sources like Netflix, Hulu, Google Play Movies & TV, HBO GO, and so much more. It also has plenty of Android games included, and with GeForce NOW, you can stream games from your Steam account and play them on the big screen. Which is a pretty fun way to play some of these games. The NVIDIA SHIELD TV is one of the more powerful set-top boxes out there, so it's definitely worth picking up. It also was just updated to Android Oreo, and it has the Google Assistant included. This allows you to ask the Google Assistant to do a slew of things – like how the weather is, what's on your calendar, who is the actor in Anger Management, and much more. Google Assistant can also help you find something to watch on TV, which is also pretty neat.
This item 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.
