NVIDIA throwing in a free Shield Remote with purchase of a Shield Android TV
NVIDIA’s Shield Android TV is one great set-top box, and it’s made even better when you have all of the official accessories to go along with it. Normally you’d need to purchase the handy remote alongside the Android TV box for an additional $49.99, but thankfully not anymore. NVIDIA is now including a free Shield Remote with the purchase of a Shield Android TV. This means you’ll be able to pick up the 16GB Shield Android TV set-top box and Remote for just $199.99. Not bad!
Similar to other set-top box remotes, the Shield Remote features a microphone for Google voice commands, a 3.5mm headphone jack for private audio listening, volume control, Bluetooth connectivity, and a rechargeable battery via Micro USB. We’d say it’s well-worth the normal $50 price tag. So now that it’s being offered for free, this deal is a no-brainer.
NVIDIA is promoting this deal with an awesome promotional video you can find attached above. The video shows someone playing a game on the Shield Android TV while being dropped from a cargo plane at 10,000 feet. We’re not sure if this is 100% legitimate, but it sure looks like it. Either way, please don’t try this at home.
