ME­DIA STREAMER

Nvidia’s first An­droid-pow­ered TV box was the most pow­er­ful de­vice of its kind on the mar­ket, and the GPU spe­cial­ist has ex­tended its lead over the com­pe­ti­tion with this new re­vi­sion. Forty per cent smaller than its pre­de­ces­sor, the sys­tem’s headline ad­di­tions are HDR sup­port and, fi­nally, Ama­zon Video, which was un­avail­able on the orig­i­nal Shield TV thanks to Ama­zon’s on­go­ing bun­fight with Google. Else­where, sup­port for Google As­sis­tant and Nvidia’s own Spot tech po­si­tions Shield TV as a smart-home hub, while its game li­brary con­tin­ues to grow, with the GeForce Now stream­ing ser­vice now of­fer­ing new Ubisoft games on their launch days. The best me­dia streamer on shelves just got even bet­ter, then.
