New NVIDIA SHIELD TV includes Google Assistant


NVIDIA have unveiled a new SHIELD TV at CES today and accompanying the release is one of the first non-Pixel devices to include Google Assistant.

Google has optimised the Assistant experience for use specifically with TV, which will allow you to find content, ask questions, and control video on the screen. It’ll also have the standard Chromecast functionality bundled in as included with the previous NVIDIA SHIELD TV.

The NVIDIA SHIELD TV is also 4K capable out of the box so you’ll be able to play content in 4K natively from Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon.

The new SHIELD TV is now available to order from NVIDIA for $199.99 for the 16GB model that includes the remote and controller. NVIDIA also plans to offer a 500GB SHIELD TV Pro console for $299.99 later in January. The new SHIELD TV will begin shipping to buyers in the US, Canada, and select European markets later this month.

Existing owners of the previous generation NVIDIA TV will also see the new features delivered via an OTA update in January.
