Let me get one thing said first, this is powerful. Seemingly packed with every feature you could ever want, let alone need. Gone are the days of having your tv surrounded by wires and boxes.

Nvidia packs in 4K HDR10 support with Dolby Vision, for extreme quality visuals, and Dolby Atmos. Your streaming content has never looked so good, seriously. AI-enhanced upscaling utilises the power of the super-fast Tegra X1+ processor, a 25% speed boost on the previous generation. This means your 720p stream can be scaled to 4K. It’s not a gimmick, content looks amazing.

Key Features:

  • 4K HDR10 and Dolby Vision support
  • AI-enhanced upscaling
  • Dolby Atmos and DTS-X surround sound
  • Dual USB 3.0 (Type A)
  • Android TV with Chromecast 4K built-in
  • Bluetooth 5.0 + Low Energy
  • Google Assistant and Alexa compatible

The Shield TV is closer related to the standard streaming sticks available, but with the features built-in, nothing really comes close. The Tegra X1+ processor and 2 GB RAM makes apps and games perform fast.

Dolby Vision and Atmos creates an incredibly immersive experience with next-level fidelity. AI-enhanced upscaling pushes this even further taking your 720/1080p content and upscaling to 4K up to 30fps. Movies and TV can be watched on the Shield TV in the highest possible quality.

Key Features:

  • 4K HDR10 and Dolby Vision support
  • AI-enhanced upscaling
  • Dolby Atmos and DTS-X surround sound
  • Android TV with Chromecast 4K built-in
  • Bluetooth 5.0 + Low Energy
  • Google Assistant and Alexa compatible

Shield Controller

This is probably one of the best controllers available. It’s great to see a featureful controller with great battery life and excellent build quality. NVidia built it for intense gaming in mind.

GeForce Now is the streaming service headlining on the Shield TV, with mobile-first to Triple-A games. Therefore the Shield controller has to be durable for years of gaming use. It’s also fantastic for long sessions, 60 hours of gaming battery, ergonomic design and a built-in high-quality headset jack means you won’t be stopped mid-game.

Key Features:

  • Standard control scheme
  • Dual vibration feedback
  • 3.5m Headset jack
  • Includes voice control built-in
  • 60 hours battery
  • Compatibility with GeForce PCs and Android

Shield Remote

Now, finally we have a modern remote with what we actually need. Voice control, bluetooth connectivity and an IR blaster makes this an extremely useful device for controlling what you need. Searching for games to play or the next series is so easy with commands. The IR blaster means you can control your tvs volume and switch the power. This extends to all your IR enabled devices like sound bars.

Keep losing your remote? Maybe not, but NVidia implemented a lost-remote locator, so if that fixes a problem then brilliant. The motion-activated backlit buttons means no more losing it in the dark. Now that is something we actually need.

Key Features:

  • Voice search
  • Motion-activated backlit buttons
  • Bluetooth
  • IR blaster (volume and power control)
  • Remote Locator

Shield Stand

This is a stand, enabling upright positioning. Thought we would include it, so you know it’s there.
