If you've owned a Chromecast with Google TV since last fall's launch, your long wait for Stadia is nearly over. Despite having been on the market for nearly a year and a half now, Stadia still isn't officially playable on Android TV — but that's changing, and soon. Earlier this month, Google announced that there'd be an official Stadia client up and running on Android TV on June 23rd, but if you're really impatient, you can get the app pre-installed on your device right now.
Your TV is only as good as the streaming dongle attached or built into it. NVIDIA's Shield TV Pro is a great way to upgrade your current setup. It comes with plenty of essential features like Chromecast support and Assistant integration, as well as premium extras such as 4K AI Upscaling and Dolby Vision. Normally retailing for $199.99, Amazon currently has the streaming device on sale for $179.99 — a cool $20 discount.
To nobody's surprise, Nvidia's extensively-leaked new Shield lineup is now official. There are two devices: the tube-shaped "dongle" simply called the Shield TV and a higher-end model that more closely resembles prior models named the Shield TV Pro. Both are available now from Nvidia.
We've been seeing leaks pointing to a new Nvidia Shield TV for a while now, and today, we've received confirmation: a listing appeared on Amazon for the Nvidia Shield Pro this morning. Upgrades include the inclusion of the new Tegra X1+ chip and support for Dolby Vision HDR.
