nvidia shield tv

Nvidia launched a new version of its Shield streaming box at the start of this month, but it's also updating the first iteration, adding some great new features.

New apps include Amazon Prime Video, Twitter, the NFL, Comedy Central and video sharing site Vimeo.

The streaming box also runs Android 7.0 Nougat, which is the latest version of Google's operating system.

Plus the box has a new Nvidia Games app, which gives you access to GeForce Now titles.

The Nvidia Shield is primarily aimed at gamers, but its 4K support outguns plenty of dedicated TV streaming boxes (Apple TV, we're looking at you). The addition of Amazon Prime Video means you can now enjoy Jeremy Clarkson and co messing about with cars in 'The Grand Tour'. And some dramatic Nazi action in 'The Man in the High Castle'.

The addition is even more noteworthy given that the Nintendo Switch won't support any video streaming services at launch.

The second version of the Nvidia Shield will have all these new features – plus a new controller – when it goes on sale.
