NVIDIA Shield TV finally gets Android 8.0 Oreo update

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.
