Spoiler: The specs don't matter as much as which platform you live in and which streaming services you use. That being said, the Shield TV 4K is too great of a package to pass up on, unless you have others in the home that rely on Apple's TV+ streaming service.
The Apple TV 4K (2021) has landed, and it's a quite impressive streaming device if you're in the market for something new. But if you're looking at the best of the best, how does it stack up against the NVIDIA Shield TV Pro?

Several new streaming devices have launched or are launching within a month of one another, cramming in new specs and features while driving down prices to compete with one another. We're weighing the best dongles, sticks and devices from Amazon, Google, Apple, Roku, Nvidia and other major tech players to decide which streaming device is the best for you.
Apple is finally updating the Apple TV 4K with a new chip and a desperately-needed remote upgrade, but it's too pricey, and too late compared to the Chromecast with Google TV. Google TV may still have a few bugs, but Apple's new box is way too expensive to put up a good fight.
Google has announced that it's bringing the Apple TV app to its Android TV platform, starting with Chromecast with Google TV devices. This will expand Apple TV+ to more users beyond those who own Sony TVs.
Google and Apple now both offer 4K, HDR, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos on their respective streaming platforms. Chromecast with Google TV costs much less, but does that mean that paying for Apple TV 4K means paying for better quality streaming? We break down which device will best suit your needs.
