Shield TV Reveals New Design, Adds Amazon Video App

shield_tv_16gbAt CES in Las Vegas NVIDIA revealed a newly designed Shield TV streaming media player and a long-awaited supporting app for Amazon Video. This means Amazon Prime members and Amazon Video customers can stream 4k video through the device, as well as content encoded in HDR (High Dynamic Range) color specifications such as Amazon’s original series Bosch, Mozart in the Jungle, and Transparent.

Shield TV also supports 4k Ultra HD content from Netflix, YouTube, Google Play, and Vudu. And, in the coming months the YouTube flagship TV app will be launching on Shield with the ability to view 360-degree video streams.

The new design of the Shield TV media player is sleeker than the previous generation, with a new hardware design, artificial intelligence and hands-free interaction with Google Assistant, and SmartThings Hub integration.

The new 16GB Nvidia Shield TV is available to pre-order for $199 with a game controller and remote. A Shield Pro model will also be available later this month and in addition to game controller and remote will also come with a headset jack and 500GB of storage for $299.

There is also a new, optional smart controller called NVIDIA SPOT ($49.99) coming soon to the platform that integrates with Shield TV and can control lighting, temperature, and alarms within your voice.
