Nvidia said the Android-based Shield TV offers a competitive price for those who are in the market for a streaming media player, both now and for the holidays - especially when compared to other devices on the market.

If we talk about the Nvidia's new bundle which is recently announced, it will be packed with a Console along with the Remote control. Here's all you need to know about the remote-only Shield TV, including the United Kingdom price and release date, as well as differences compared with the standard model.

The controller is also available as a standalone extra for £59.99 if you decide you do want one down the line. Fortunately, all the Shield TV and available variants do support 4K HDR. The new Shield TV from Nvidia comes with Plex server capabilities, the Google Play Store, built-in Chromecast support. Apart from this, just like smartphones you can even expand the memory of this TV by using a USB drive. There's also a SHIELD Stand for $20 and a replacement SHIELD tv remote for $50. The SHIELD TV (remote + game controller) is available for $99 while the 500GB SHIELD Pro now costs $299.

In his review previous year, my colleague Dan Seifert wrote that the Shield TV is "best for gamers" and that if you're not interested in gaming, "you're better off saving money and going with an Amazon Fire TV or Roku Ultra".

Pre-orders for this "new" 16GB Shield TV variant are already underway at the manufacturer's USA e-store, with "select retailers" set to join the party soon, and deliveries beginning October 18.

The new configuration is available for preorder today but won't start shipping until October 18th.
