The Nvidia Shield TV 4K HDR gaming edition streaming media player is down to $176.45. This deal comes thanks to a price drop from its $190 street price and an on-page coupon you'll need to clip that takes an extra $2.03 off. This is one of the lowest prices we've seen on the Nvidia Shield TV since January, and it's even less expensive than the normal version that doesn't include a controller.

The Nvidia Shield TV is a device undergoing constant improvements, and this price is one worth paying attention to.

The Shield TV 4K device functions not just as a streaming player but also as a media server and a smart home hub with fully customizable settings. It offers 4K HDR video quality along with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X surround sound pass-through. It can download apps like Netflix, Hulu, Spotify, NFL, YouTube and so many more once connected to your Wi-Fi network at home. This version adds a gaming controller you can use to play games you've downloaded to the player.

You can also use a device with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, like the Echo Dot or Google Home Mini, to control the Shield TV using your voice.
