Nvidia has let us know that they are discounting the SHIELD on Amazon by $20.99, this means you can now snap it up for $129. The tubular SHIELD streaming device launched just over a year ago at $149.99 and has generally held its launch price ever since.
As a reminder the NVIDIA SHIELD has a Tegra X1+ processor, which is 25% faster than the models powered by the Tegra X1, and supports Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. It's also capable of upscaling 720p or 1080p content to 4K.
It comes with 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot. The SHIELD supports dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth; in terms of software, it comes with Android Pie out of the box, and Chromecast 4K built-in.
There's also a remote included. The triangular-shaped controller has backlit buttons that turn on when motion is detected, a built-in mic for Google Assistant queries, and a remote locator in case you misplace it. It connects to the Shield TV via Bluetooth, but it also has an IR blaster for use with your TV.
Unfortunately there is no word on a discount for the SHIELD TV Pro, which still costs $199.99 so if you are hoping to bag that model on a discount, you may have to wait until Black Friday passes, as this deal will stay live until Monday, November 30th 11:59 PM PT.
