New Nvidia Shield TV sees its first sale, and you can buy its remote separately
Nvidia’s newly updated Shield TV is one of the best Android TV streaming devices you can get. It offers reliable performance, a sleek, unobtrusive design, and a super functional remote. Now, the new Nvidia Shield TV is even cheaper than before, thanks to its first-ever sale. And if you have an older Nvidia Shield TV device, you can now pick up that remote separately over on Nvidia’s website.
It’s no secret: We love the Nvidia Shield TV lineup. The company’s first iteration was best in its class, and only its successor could dethrone it. Unfortunately, Nvidia also makes some of the most expensive Android TV boxes.

We think this device is a substantial upgrade over the older model, but not a necessary one. Nvidia’s first-generation Shield TV is still a solid Android TV box, and now, you can get a slightly upgraded experience without spending too much money.
You can now pick up the 2019 Nvidia Shield TV’s remote separately and use it on your old box. The device is available for only $30, but you can only pick it up from Nvidia’s website right now. We don’t know if this will work on other Android TV boxes or not, but it’s worth considering if you have the first generation Nvidia Shield TV model.
Whether you just upgrade your remote or you upgrade your entire Nvidia Shield TV box, you won’t be disappointed with your decision. We’re not sure how long the Nvidia Shield TV will keep its new lower price tag, so if you are on the fence about upgrading, you should decide quickly before you miss this sale.
