No one can deny that being able to stream the best games using GeForce NOW is awesome. With that in mind NVIDIA has worked tirelessly to ensure that SHIELD users experience not only the most visually compelling gaming possible, but our users demand a smooth, lag-free experience.
The SHIELD Android TV box was built for people who live to consume media and while the technology amazes even when using standard cable and DSL broadband, Google Fiber is capable of delivering Internet speeds up to one gigabit per second – that’s 1,000 Mbps compared to the national average of 11.7 Mbps. Simply put, that’s fast enough to let you download a 14GB movie in less than two minutes. In other words, Google Fiber and SHIELD deliver a GeForce NOW gaming experience that’s second to none.
Often described as “the Netflix of gaming,” think of GeForce NOW as essentially your own personal gaming library in the cloud. NVIDIA SHIELD and GeForce NOW round out all of your streaming options by adding the best games to the music, movies and apps that you already stream. And Google Fiber is the broadband service capable of delivering this gaming and entertainment experience at breakneck speeds.
With SHIELD’s gigabit Ethernet port and a Google Fiber connection, you can seamlessly stream your favorite content – whether it’s a new season of your favorite Netflix show in Ultra HD or the hottest new PC game on GeForce NOW. Boasting plenty of bandwidth, with Google Fiber’s gigabit Internet, one person can stream the best games to play while another person streams a movie, TV show or music, without any lag.
GeForce NOW starts at just $7.99 a month, with the first three months free and it comes with “all-you-can-game” access to more than 50 included game titles.
