Big news for those of you who have NVIDIA Shield TV - which, by the way, is the only Android TV box you should consider right now. The Android 8.0 Oreo update (which brings it up to the latest major version of Android) is available starting today.

This'll bring along a major update to the user interface. You'll get new sections along the left side of the screen, with your favorite apps (customizable, of course), play next (where what you've been watching and playing recently will appear) and channels (which is what apps are now called, sort of).

In addition, Amazon Prime Video will get a major refresh, Plex Media Service is improved, and a whole bunch more.

The NVIDIA Shield TV is a device with a what I guess is a small, but very dedicated fanbase. I'm always tempted to buy one to see what all the fuss is about.

NVIDIA Shield Tablet

I used to own a Shield Tablet until recently, and can say that they are very nice devices. If I remember correctly, the Shield TV is exactly the same chip, with more ports. The Tegra K1 runs circles around any other mobile processor out there, and the battery life was great!

I'm always surprised NVIDIA has not managed to get their chip on phones and tablets from other manufacturers.
