The NVIDIA Shield 4K Android TV gaming box for a special $50 Black Friday discount deal
Stephan Jukic – November 25, 2015
NVIDIA’s awesome new Shield 4K Android TV platform with 4K ultra HD capability is a lean powerhouse of a device which we’ve already thoroughly reviewed here on 4K.com.
Furthermore, it’s also now going on sale for Black Friday for one very enticing little discount deal. As of the 27th of November, when Black Friday rolls around, you’ll be able to get a $50 discount on the Shield Android TV and gaming box with 4K ultra HD gaming and video compatibility while also getting a free remote control thrown in as part of the bargain.
And the only catch to this deal is that you’ll have to deal with the crowds of other shoppers since the discount is only available in brick & mortar stores as far as Black Friday goes.
Starting on Thanksgiving day, the Shield’s $50 discount and free remote control will be going on sale at Best Buy, Fry’s, GameStop, Micro Center and possibly other retailers as well. Now, since most of these stores won’t be opening up for their Black Friday deals until later on that day, you’ll have plenty of other buyers competing for space as first shoppers, so this in-store only deal might not entirely be worth the wait if you’re not THAT impatient to grab up this genuinely fantastic gaming and 4K/HD content streaming platform.
Since NVIDIA is only doing the deal in-store for Black Friday, the more crowd-averse among you might want to hold off until Cyber Monday (just a couple days further down the month) and get the exact same deal on the Shield online, from the comfort of your own home, at the NVIDIA online store, Amazon.com and Newegg along with the NCIX website.
This special deal for the Shield is valid for both the regular and PRO versions of the gaming/streaming platform and translates out to a 16GB Shield for just $150 (with remote as a bonus) and the Shield PRO for just $250, from its regular $300 price tag.
What can the Shield do? For the really rich details of all its multimedia and online gaming capabilities, check out our review of the device here. But, in basic terms, this is a powerhouse multimedia content streaming machine which offers access to 4K UHD movies and programming from Netflix and other online sources while also allowing you access to other media apps and some very cool online games via both NVIDIA GameStream technology and the Android Games platform via its Android TV interface.
