This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

The Nvidia Shield TV Pro 2019 is currently £199.00 RRP. However, I've noticed you can you can select the currency you wish to pay with when ordering from Nvidia directly.

The price for the Shield in Euros is €219.00. When using my Halifax Clarity Credit Card, the amount I've been charged is £184.38. You can also pay with PayPal if you don't have a fee-free card and the final price is currently £192.58 using their exchange rates.

Please be aware that the final figure paid will differ for you depending on when the transaction is made as well as accounting for any exchange rates or transaction fees if using another bank or PayPal. Still, a saving to be had for those in the market for a new Shield TV.

Cashback also available via Quidco (£3.58).

I'm pretty sure I've read the cylinder runs 32bit OS and is incapable of running 64bit apps.
This is ok but tbh, unless you need the better remote (it's really nice) or Dolby Vision for streaming or you need to have a device process the Dolby E-AC3 codec, then buy the older one. Both are great devices, the newer one is a little faster and as I said, it had a really nice remote.

its mainly for playing games. Nvidia streams a lot of cool games to it, and you can also stream them from your home PC (e.g. play a game like metal gear solid on your shield/TV while it runs on your PC) . They used to be touted as some amazing super great streaming device, but if you ask me nearly £200 for a streaming device is insane. I have one, and to be honest I wish I hadn't wasted the money on it .. yes it plays everything, but so does my £20 4K firestick So unless you want it for the gaming stuff, it's a very overpriced streamer

Have got a 55 OLED Sony AG8 and Fire 4K stick. Usually watch netflix, Prime video and Coronation street on ITV hub. is it really worth almost 200 smackers or would it just be an expensive ornament :\


It's got special use cases imo. For me personally, it's the only way to get Dolby Atmos on netflix for me. It has very good 1080p to 4k ai upscaling. It's good for using Plex with a local server as it's quite powerful. This is pretty much my only reasons for a potential purpose.

If you are buying it just for the sake of having something more expensive, I wouldn't bother. A cheap Roku/Chromecast/firestick will do a similar job but just doesn't suit my needs

Good find OP,
This is the cheapest price since release.
Side note, my fat fingers voted cold by accident.

Anyone figure out the battery issue on the game pad on the old one? Mine has to be permanently plugged in
The new cylinder one (streaming box) is £125 on amazon.com after fees, £150 in the U.K., is it any good?
Will this will come with an EU plug?

Should be a UK plug as you're purchasing it in the same way you would normally, just changing the currency charges at checkout. Delivery is within 1-3 days so I can confirm once received.
Nice spot OP. I checked out the other currencies (czk, dkk) also and they worked out more expensive. Purchased through quidco. For those considering the tube version, it's also cheaper to buy on here using the same method. However, the tube only has 2GB RAM and is only 32bit rather than 64bit so won't run apps developed for 64bit devices.

I agree to some extent.

No value in upgrading if you already have the 2017 model unless you're benefitting from what you mentioned. If you wanted to, you could buy the new remote for £30 and it will now work with the 2017 model.

However, definitely worth the upgrade from the 2015 model or if buying fresh - especially as the going rate for 2017 models go for £120-£150 on fleabay.

You're lucky, common issue with battery on game pads. Nvidia offer zero help. I've spent hours on the forums there seems to be no simple solutions. Problems with the charging thermistor burning out

If it's draining down quickly make sure you don't have Google Assistant set to be always listening as I believe that uses the mic in the remote and gamepad and so drains more battery.

You're right. But did that fairly early on in the fault finding process.

Unfortunately there is a fault in the charging process in some units. From what I've read some people believe the thermistor that stops the battery overheating burns out easily. Nvidia won't acknowledge the problem as then they'd be liable for costs.

That's correct, not an issue for most people but if you want to run the Dreamcast emulator then there's only a 64bit version of that.
Most importantly, will it run Mobdro and ShowPopcornMovies app?

None of the stuff I watch seemed to benefit from that. It always seems to be incompatible. So I just tried to some YouTube HD clips and it didn't seem to make any difference at all. But my TV has great upscaling so in a way that is probably good news. It may depend on what you are watching though because overall I've seen mixed reviews. So......

anyone have this weird issue where the audio just goes after a while ?
i have mine hooked up to my surround amplifier, then the amp to the TV (yes i've tried it the other way, and with and without ARC)
but after watching say 3 or 4 TV episodes (in VLC , Youtube or Kodi - doesn't matter) occasionally there will be no audio at all until the shield is restarted.

it's driving me nuts, to the point im thinking to return the shield pro and replace it with a 4K fireTV stick for much less money (I don't play games so that's not really a winner for me on the shield, I got it to stream because it's supposedly the best streamer out there)
its worth the hype, i have used libreelec and kodi boxes for years and you always had to fiddle with them, this just works

get it early so you don't endup holding out for the next version in 2 years...
FooFighter28/01/2020 08:10

You did something wrong then. I setup some £25 android boxes on coreelec for a few people late 2018 and all are still working great, playing 4k hdr etc ever since, they auto update and I've not touched any of them since.

Ive just upgraded to a £25 x96 air, amlogic s905x3, 4gb ram, 32gb storage (64gb available for £5 more), dual band WiFi, gigabit ethernet. Running coreelec it'll easily match the shield for media playback, the only thing missing is dolby vision but it supports the potentially better hdr+ anyway.

no, it worked...... did'nt stream as nice as the shield, i don't think the amilogic drivers were great and also if a new version of kodi comes out you need to reflash....

also i run my own personal TV server in the house and the Shield integrates nice with that using Android IPTV apps and also the Android version of plex is nicer than kodi's

i don't think i would buy another box without the Android Tv interface, it makes everything much more plesuable

That just confirms even more you didn't know what you were doing. I can happily play 80gb 4k hevc hdr files just fine with no issues at all, if you couldn't then it was a network or user issue (or you were using dodgy illegal streams). They update to new versions just fine with no need to wipe it or re-set it up. I run a TV server on a raspberry pi with XBox one tuners, works perfectly and the inbuilt pvr/epg works fine.

Ive not booted into android on any of them since the day I got it. Find kodi a much better interface.

I can play the 140mbps jellyfish sample perfectly (525mb for 30 seconds).
