Nvidia Shield Android TV now available from Nvidia and Amazon, Pro model coming soon
The Android TV platform has been out for about a year now, though the selection of Android TV boxes has been quite scarce so far. That’s starting to change today, as Nvidia has finally made its Android TV-powered set-top box available for purchase from a few different retailers around the web.
The Nvidia Shield Android TV can now be purchased from Nvidia and Amazon in the United States, with the standard 16GB model going for $199.99. There’s also a 500GB Pro model that will be available for $299.99, though this variant won’t be available until June. Both models come with a $30 Google Play gift card and a 90-day free trial to Google Play Music, and the Pro model will come with the Android version of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel when it launches in July.
You can also purchase some additional items along with the set-top box, including a remote for $49.99 and an extra controller for $59.99. You can also purchase a nifty little stand for the box for $29.99, but these are currently on backorder through Amazon for about 1-3 weeks.
Best Buy will also have all of these items available, but the Shield Android TV box is currently listed as “coming soon”. If you’re interested, follow the links below to purchase your own, and be sure to check out the new promotional video Nvidia just launched.
