When it comes to streaming your favorite episodes and movies and such, you have a lot of options. When you need a device that hooks up to your TV, though, few options are as powerful and robust as the Nvidia Shield TV 4K (opens in new tab), and right now you can get it for $20 off its regular price. We used to see a lot more deals on these media streaming devices, but this is only the second time this year it has dropped this low. The previous price drop didn't last very long, only about a day, so expect this one to disappear just as quickly.

You might find you already have a lot of stuff you can use with the Nvidia Shield. For example, Xbox controller support was added at the beginning of the year. There is a Nvidia Shield gaming edition (opens in new tab) that has its own controller, but why not use the controller you already have and save some money? Plus, it's a controller you're used to and already love.

Are you an Xbox Game Pass subscriber? Well, then you probably know that this includes Project xCloud, which allows you to play your favorite games from the cloud. And that is compatible with Nvidia Shield as well. Not only is it compatible, but it works almost as well as the real thing.

This version of the Nvidia Shield improves performance over previous generations by 25% thanks to the advanced Tegra X1+ processor. It is the fastest streaming media player for Android TV, and it comes with support for tech like Dolby Vision HDR, Dolby Atmos audio, and more. Enhance your surround sound and get an awesome audio experience. It also has AI upscaling so everything you watch looks amazing.

It even improves on its size, making the device so compact it can fit behind your entertainment center so it's out of sight while you use it. It still includes a Gigabit Ethernet port so you can hardwire for stable, speedy internet while streaming. There's even a microSD card slot to add more storage. It has a built-in power supply and dual-band Wi-Fi.
