Nvidia unveiled its new Nvidia Shield TV media streamer and gaming device at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) last week.

The redesigned Android TV-based device will ship with both a remote and a game controller, support 4K high dynamic range images, and in the coming months will be expanded with artificial intelligence capabilities – including hands-free Google Assistant integration on TV.

The device will give users access to streaming services like Amazon Video, Netflix, YouTube and Google Play Movies, as well as access to an expanded catalogue of streamed games – including Ubisoft catalogue games like Watch Dogs 2 and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.

Shield TV is available to pre-order now and will ship in the United States, Canada and select European regions later this month. Including controller and remote, it will be priced at US$199.99 in the US, £189.99 in the UK and €229.99 in Germany.
