Why we like the NVIDIA Shield TV

Your TV setup is a major part of your smart home. So why not have the lines blur between smart home and video streaming device? That’s exactly where the NVIDIA Shield TV fits into our smart home setup. This 4K compatible video streamer is without a doubt the most powerful video streaming device on the planet. But recently they launched a small add-on stick that fully converts the Shield TV into a SmartThings smart home hub. And Google has partnered with NVIDIA to add full Google Assistant voice search support to the streaming device. We’d argue this may be the most versatile smart home device in existence.

Voice Assistant Compatibility

As mentioned above, the NVIDIA Shield TV is now fully integrated into the Google Assistant ecosystem. You can easily search for Netflix and other videos on the device by simply speaking into the included controller which has a Google Home-like microphone on it.

Other Compatibility

This streaming box is perfect for running Plex, Kodi and Netflix, but it is also a fully capable Google Chromecast device. So when you need to you can cast content directly from your phone or tablet directly to the unit. In our tests, the Shield TV’s Chromecast performance is even better than the Chromecast itself. Buffering in our system is almost a thing of the past.

Extra features

The addition of SmartThings support is another big selling point for the NVIDIA Shield TV as it allows the unit to play double duty as both video streaming but also smart home hub. The addition of the SmartThings Link USB stick to the back of the Shield basically opens up the capability of controlling Z-Wave, Z-Wave Plus and Zigbee devices in your smart home setup straight through the Shield TV. This is a game changer.

Speaking of game changer, the video game capabilities of the Shield are also stellar. You can install Android TV games but also stream PC games directly to your TV from your own NVIDIA video card on your computer. They also include the abaility to stream select high-end PC games to the box from the cloud. It’s an amazing level of compatibility that you simply won’t find anywhere else. Not to mention the excellent retro video game emulators that you can download off Google Play…


If I had to pick one central brain for my home theater setup, it would be the NVIDIA Shield TV. It’s sheer level of power and diverse set of integrations with other smart home gear makes this one of the best smart home buys around.
