The coronavirus pandemic has caused tons of disruption to many industries across the globe, and major professional sports are no different. Public health is the number one priority right now, so the NBA, NHL, and MLB are all suspended for the time being while the US is undergoing a period of self-isolation and social distancing and the NFL is lucky to be in its off-season. This couldn't come at a worse time for sports fans who are stuck at home with little to do, but thankfully the big four sports have made a bunch of classic content free to watch. Read More
With every update, small or big, Nvidia's Shield TV gets better and better. Three years on, it's still easily the best standalone Android TV box you can buy. Today's update to Shield Software Experience 7.2.3 isn't a major one by any means, but it brings a feature I've wanted since the start: the option to restart WiFi and re-scan for networks. Read More
All I know about Hockey is that it's like football (the real one), but with pucks and sticks and skates, plus the players smash into each other way too often. If you know more about the game and follow NHL teams or the entire league, then you'd be happy to know you can now do so on your Android TV device as well. Read More
Based on the results of our Super Bowl poll earlier this year, most of our readers here at Android Police aren't much into sports. And that's fine, neither are we. But for those of you that are interested, ESPN has just announced a new ESPN+ streaming service for only $5 a month, as well as an updated app. The actual selection of live content might leave a bit to be desired, though.

2K just released NHL SuperCard 2K18 on the Play Store as a continuation of their free-to-play SuperCard series of games. Much like the popular WWE SuperCard, you will be collecting over 450 different cards in order to battle opponents in real-time through its PVP focused gameplay. Read More
A trio of titles from 2K games have been discounted significantly in the Play Store, making it a good time to jump on the bandwagon if you haven't already. Civilization Revolution 2, the latest in the Android entries from the Sid Meier franchise, has been reduced by $10 to $4.99. XCOM: Enemy Within, a standalone expansion to its popular XCOM predecessor, is also at $4.99 (an $8 discount). Last but not least, NHL 2K can be had for just $2.99, down from $7.99.
Each of these games has more than solid reviews, but XCOM: Enemy Within stands out in that regard with a 4.5 average rating. Read More
I don't watch hockey, and the closest I've come to the sport consisted of living in Pittsburgh for a year and a half, a place where people adamantly stand by their NHL team. (I got caught in traffic when visiting just this weekend due to a Penguins game at the Consol Energy Center, only to see the same match on TV at the restaurant where we wound up that night.) Away from that city, I'm hard pressed to think of someone who can name more than a couple teams. So when I tell you that NHL 2K has come to the Play Store, that's pretty much all I know about the game. Read More
