The Nick for Android TV app

App: Nick for Android TV (Free)

SpongeBob SquarePants fans rejoice as the Nick for Android TV app is now available for SHIELD. With the ability to watch full episodes and videos from Nickelodeon on the Nick app for Android TV you can now while away your time with your favorite Nick shows like “SpongeBob SquarePants,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” and “Henry Danger” just to name a few. Not a pure cord cutting app, the Nick for Android TV app requires you have a cable or satellite subscription. Parents will also welcome the app’s parental controls.

Game: Sacred 3 streaming on GeForce NOW

Harkening back to such classics as Gauntlet, Diablo, and Titan Quest, Sacred 3 is this week’s new release in the GeForce NOW store. You can score Sacred 3 now through July 11th for 75% off the regular retail price of $14.99. This translates to a mere $3.75 for unlimited streaming rights on SHIELD and a digital download code for Steam that you can use to install a local copy of the game.

TV show: "Marco Polo" Season 2 streaming on Netflix

Inspired by Marco Polo's early years in the court of Kublai Khan, this Netflix original series is entering into its second season. But more than that, “Marco Polo” is one of the first shows that Netflix will be streaming in HDR. HDR (High Dynamic Range) is a new standard for Ultra HD TVs and we highly recommend that SHIELD owners with HDR-compatible TVs check this one out. Season 2 is currently streaming on Netflix.

Movie: “Big Hero 6” streaming free on STARZ and available to buy on VUDU

”Big Hero 6” is the story of robotics prodigy Hiro who lives in the city of San Fransokyo. After his older brother, his best friend is Baymax, a robot whose sole purpose is to take care of people. After a dramatic turn of events Hiro finds himself in the middle of a complex plot that requires that he transform Baymax and his crew into a band of high-tech heroes. “Big Hero 6” is currently streaming on STARZ and it’s available to buy with VUDU.
