If you don’t know about the Nvidia shield, or how it works, it’s an Android box that allows you to stream movies and tv shows as well as live tv for free on this box. The version I upgraded to was the Mini, but there is an older Nvidia Shield version.
For those who use the Firestick, this would be a big upgrade to what you are used to.
