As part of Amazon’s Black Friday Sales that have just gone live are both packs of the NVIDIA Shield TV. If you don’t need a game controller, the NVIDIA Shield TV w/ remote is $149 or $152. This is the new package with only a remote that is normally $179 and this is the first time it has ever gone on sale. If you do want a game controller for not much more, the NVIDIA Shield TV w/ controller and remote is $169.99. That package is normally $199.99 and this sale price matches the lowest price it has ever been.
The bundle without a game controller has been flipping between $152 and $149.
The NVIDIA Shield TV is currently on sale for $169.99 on Amazon. This is the latest model that was released at the start of the year. It’s the package that includes both the remote control and game controller which normally sells for $199.99. This sale is the lowest price that the Shield TV has ever been. There have only been two other sales that I know of and they were both $10 more than this current sale price. The $179.99 package without the game controller and the $299.99 Pro model that includes a large hard drive are not on sale. The Shield TV is a very capable gaming and streaming device that runs Android TV and is a great alternative to the Fire TV if you’re looking to do things beyond basic content streaming, like running a Plex server on it or using it as an OTA recorder.
NVIDIA is now making their Shield TV available without a game controller for $179. That’s $20 less than the original $199.99 bundle that includes both a game controller and remote control. This is new bundle includes the same 16GB model that was released in January of this year. Considering the Shield game controller costs $59.99 on its own, you’re going to want to be pretty certain that you don’t want a game controller before buying the new bundle. The game controller is also required for the hands-free “Ok Google” capabilities that were promised in January of this year but have still not arrived. Pre-orders for the new bundle begin today and ship on October 18.
