When it comes to 4K HDR media streamers currently on the market, the NVIDIA SHIELD TV is one of the more powerful entries available. The device is powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra X1 SoC and runs Google’s Android TV operating system. For those of you that haven’t already managed to snag a SHIELD TV, Amazon is giving you a prime opportunity to strike on Prime Day.
Prime Day kicks off today, July 16th, starting at 3PM EST, and the SHIELD TV will be on sale for $139, which is $40 off its regular price. Checking out the trusty CamelCamelCamel price tracker, the lowest price that this particular variant of the SHIELD TV has been on Amazon is $159.97, so the Prime Day savings undercuts the previous low by $20.
This particular configuration will get you 16GB of onboard storage and comes with a voice remote controller. In addition to supporting the usual staple of streaming apps like Hulu and Netflix, the SHIELD TV can also serve as a Google Assistant-compatible device, giving you control over your smart home. It also supports the add-on Samsung SmartThings USB dongle that gives you control over smart devices.
And as we previously reported, the SHIELD TV now supports GeForce NOW, which allows you to stream AAA PC games to your TV — there are currently 225 games in the library. And NVIDIA is actually quite good about keeping the SHIELD TV up-to-date by giving it the latest releases of Android and new functionality on a regular basis.
We should note, however, that the $139 price won’t be in effect until tomorrow afternoon, so you will only see the regular price if you click on the link right now.
In addition to the discounted SHIELD TV, there are a number of Prime deals that you can take advantage of right now. The Echo Show is available for $130, which is $100 off its regular price. Amazon is also providing three months of Kindle Unlimited for $1 (normally $10/month) for first-time subscribers, while four months of Amazon Music Unlimited will only cost you $1 instead of the usual $7.99/month rate. Finally, you can get three months of Audible for $4.95 per month instead of the usual $14.95 per month.
